Stream Videos in Teams thread
I want to put Stream videos in Teams thread, not tab
Just started using Stream for some internal training videos and was disappointed to see that linking to the Stream video in a teams post shows a generic Stream link. It should absolutely pull through the thumbnail, title and description from Stream so teams users have an idea of what they're clicking on and whether the content is relevant to them.
This needs to be added!
Yes, Please make this happen soon !!!
You're not keeping up with the times!

Adding a Stream Channel to a Teams Channel via a tab makes perfect sense, but adding an individual Stream Video to a Teams Channel tab makes no sense.
Please add the ability to embed individual Stream videos within teams posts and chats, like you can already do in OneNote and Yammer (as described here here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/stream/embed-video-oembed#an-example-scenario)
Yes!!! Can this please be a thing?!

In case you end up here and think: this cannot be the only item on this: you're right: somewhere to merge our voting power: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/16945996-embed-media
I run a weekly communication article as announcement and mention the Teams channel name. Out of 2000 colleagues, about 1000 are reading the article, but if that article contains a short video, I only get 50 of them watching it.
This is just because the video URL is unattractive to them.
Having MS Stream embedded in the posting will likely get 3x more watchers of that video!

I agree with Greg M. The YouTube embed displays a nice look/layout. Why can Teams take advantage of Stream's built-in thumbnail and display it when posted in Teams post thread?
I also agree with Greg Messler's comment -- is there already a UserVoice idea we can vote on for this?

Totally agree with the comment of Greg Messler, that would be an excellent addition!!
Seriously... how bland are the streams video banners. it's the 21st century. 20 years in. can we have this please?

That would be handy to see the videos and communicate at the same place. Many times we skip going to the other tab and miss on the video.
Appreciate if we can incorporate it in the future release!

I would like to improve on this idea. You can put a link to a Stream video in a thread. But it does not look good at all. It does not pull in a thumbnail or even the name and description of the video. Just the Stream generic logo. When including link to a stream video it should show thumbnail, title, description and maybe other info (like length of video), similar to how youtube video links or website links show up. See attached comparison of YoutTube Link vs. Stream Link. Even bettter would be to allow option to embed a video in the channel steam and play without launching out into stream tab. Give user option to watch it existing size, or to expand to full screen, or launch in stream page.

This has a lot of value for those who want a simpler communication channel. The ability to share a video to Yammer is great for larger organizations, but the ability to embed a Stream video into an announcement post would be great. This allows organizations to scale up or down based on size and adopt either Teams, Yammer or both.
