What’s happening

UIS is disabling uploads to Microsoft Stream (Classic), the old version of the video sharing app, on Tuesday 07 February. The new version is called Stream (on SharePoint). Teams meeting recordings are already being automatically saved to Stream (on SharePoint). 

More information: Stream (on SharePoint) vs Stream (Classic) Guide

How it affects you

This applies to your account in the central University Microsoft tenancy:

  • From 07 February, you must upload videos to your Stream (on SharePoint) (
  • Any videos you have already uploaded to Stream (Classic) will still be available to view.
  • You don’t need to copy your videos from Stream (Classic) to Stream (on SharePoint).

User guides

See Microsoft’s support documentation: 

Why it’s happening

This is one of several steps UIS will be taking to prepare the University’s Microsoft tenancy for when Stream (Classic) is retired in February next year.
