Share a Stream video inside a Microsoft Teams meeting
Would love to share a Stream video inside a Microsoft Teams meeting. Have customers with training use cases to show small videos with audio inside a Teams meeting. Faking a web camera thru software creates audio synchronization issues and the shared desktop doesn't provide for the desktop audio like Zoom does it.
It is possible to embed YouTube, Vimeo and Stream videos in PowerPoint. Use the Video -> Insert Video From -> Online Video ... and paste the link to the video in the dialog box.
In the Teams meeting, instead of presenting via a desktop share or screen share, use the PowerPoint option on the far right-hand side. This will use YouTube, Vimeo or Stream as the video source instead of the Client PC.
You must use the PowerPoint content sharing instead of desktop sharing to get this to work.
Yes, please, it's always a problem if you want to show videos during a Teams Meeting (or Live Event) and have to share your screen (even if you can include audio, of course - but playing it back locally means trouble with bandwidth/performance). So I want to share it in a way that it's broadcast directly from Stream (or Sharepoint, or somewhere "inside" Teams, where I've uploaded it before) to everybody.
Must have for remote training.
Additional request for such application (training) is to store all participant and comments of the CHAT (Ctrl+A Copy paste on other stream work partially)

Took it for granted that this was in place but got surprised it wasnt !
Play a video in the shared screen feed is not acceptable in 2021. !!
This is really not 2021.....first downloading from stream...then upload it through screen sharing is really really not as it shoulld be

We just want a Teams watchparty option. We only want to playback our own YouTube and Vimeo content, but we want all parties to stream it from their own side, rather than being dependant on the connection of a host sharing the video stream from their computer. Alternatively, we'd like to upload the video to the meeting/event. It's essential the we can control playback for all parties. Our enterprise has moved from BlueJeans to Teams and this is the number one feature we miss.
Martin Tätzner commented
This essential feature is still missing...
Hard to believe as literally everyone I produced Teams Live Events or Teams Meetings for, asked to share video...
How long do we have to wait for it...?
Michael Davenport commented
This is vital functionality - would be great if you'd consider other popular video hosting sites like YouTube and Vimeo as well.
Gabriele Ferrarotti commented
please enable this feature! it's all we need to run our events with video streaming, otherwise we will keep on using other services to do web events (Zoom, GoToWebinar, Webex...) they all allow off-the-cloud streaming (with different video quality levels)
Luís Marques commented
should by a chance all read from a source on the internet (download from de youtube HD) and not all "drink" from the same participante in the meeting (up load from homenet with less capacity)!
Big issue, even in 2021. We came from Zoom to improve. It is a major disadvantage compare to Zoom. We need videos for training purposes.

Sharing a streamed video inside Microsoft Teams meeting would reduce the network upload compared by sharing a local screen hosting the video.
Manuel Gaetano Miele commented
that's definetively a feature we need!
sharing a video application is often something strictly related to network performances.
Moreover when start sharing you have to remember to share the computer audio, it slows down all the meeting dynamics.
How is this not possible yet? Such a vital function. Teams really has to keep up with the game...
