Share to Microsoft Stream

We use Microsoft Office 365 along with Microsoft Stream- which is a video storage service similar to YouTube.  I'd love to be able to send a SnagIt video directly to Stream, like you can YouTube.

Thanks for the suggestion! Currently, Microsoft does not have a way to allow us to do this, however we're keeping an eye out for when they create an "API" that lets us upload to there.

Paul, your API is freeware as of 2012 (RTMP) and was created by Adobe. Check with your contacts on the Microsoft Stream team for any specifics or differences. If you need help getting in contact, please contact me directly via email.

It's just a matter of pushing the stream in proper format. In this case, RTMP or RTMPS.

RTMP is a live-streaming protocol; nothing editing with Camtasia is streamed live. So, I'm not quite sure how you envision this working. Live streaming a video and uploading it to a video sharing service are two different things...

Looks like Microsoft is developing an API and the current expected release date is Q3 2019.

"Microsoft Stream: Public APIs

Enable basic programmatic capabilities (upload, edit, fetch, display) for Microsoft Stream via APIs."

It also shows as a future feature here:  https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/stream/office-365-video-feature-breakdown

Definitely a +1 for me.  Making it easy to upload videos from Camtasia into an O365 tenant would be huge.  

On a side note - a connector for Azure Blob Storage would be awesome as well...

Nice Phil! Same here, would be very helpful.

Paul Middlin, Yes, capture and streaming are two different things, we are in agreement.

The ask is, instead of saving to disk, then uploading to O365 Stream, we can capture to O365 Stream. I believe the functionality already exists for other video stream services in your product.

Yes, that sounds like just what we'd need in order to consider integrating Camtasia with Stream. We'll have to watch it!

No, Microsoft's current estimated launch date for their API is 4th quarter 2019. So, we'll have to see how that goes.
