Microsoft is changing the storage options for new Teams meeting recordings to be stored on, and served from, OneDrive and SharePoint (ODSP) – instead of Microsoft Stream.
- New features
The move to OneDrive & SharePoint immediately unlocks long-awaited features including external and guest sharing.
- Meeting storage
Non-Channel meetings will be stored in the OneDrive of the person who clicked the record button in a special folder labeled “Recordings” – that sits at the top of the recorder’s OneDrive. Channel meetings will be stored in a folder labeled “Recordings” under a folder named after the channel under the Team’s document library.
All meeting invitees – except for external users – in non-channel meetings will automatically get a shared link to access the meeting recording. External users will need to be explicitly added to the shared list by the meeting organizer or the person that clicked the record button. For Channel meetings, permissions will be inherited from the owners and members list in the channel.
- Feature gaps
The following gaps exist today:
- Ability to block the download of the video by meeting participants.
- Ability to view and edit the transcript in the player, but closed captions will be present.
- Non-English language transcripts/captions.
- Variable playback speed in the video player.
Transcript timeframe search (e.g., to find a specific point in time when something was discussed)
