Save live event recording in Teams channel and Stream automatically
We love the new "live event" feature, but we're not able to roll this our yet as we're missing the auto upload to Microsoft Stream.
Our current setup is an internal product demo every 2 weeks, where we record the demo. This demo is saved in Stream and a thumbnail of the recording is automatically showing in the demo channel in Teams.
This is the note which I found in the Help Center:
Note: "Quick start" live event recordings are currently not saved in Microsoft Stream. You can download the recording from the meeting details and upload it manually to Microsoft Stream after the event.

Since there is a high risk of Teams recording getting out in the wrong hands due to the abrupt change introduced by Microsoft, educators in our school are very upset and requesting a platform change to Zoom. Why there a need for Microsoft to stop auto-upload on the Stream app? Why Microsoft can not give provision to restrict the download limited to the Teams owners and not attendees?
It is very frustrating to have to download the recording to your computer and then have to upload again to get it in the cloud (Stream) to share it. Especially when upload is so much slower than download.
At the very least, it would help to have an option to 'upload to stream' directly from where ever it is currently stored (which is presumably somewhere in the same O365 cloud environment.)
With TEAMs being so integrated, why is a Live Event not automatically uploaded into Stream to watch later?
We need to download the TEAMs recording and reupload to Stream each time because the Teams re-viewing experience is complicated. It says meetings are recorded into Stream, but why not Live Events?
at least allow to post a live event in a channel!

Agreed - make this a consistent experience - regular Teams meeting recordings end up in Stream already.
And this suggested feature in combination with a simple trimming tool in Stream to remove pre-live and post-live parts would be extraordinary!
And finally Microsoft: Why are you recording live events in 720p and not (at least) 1080p, when the Teams client in regular meetings saves the meetings in 1080p?
