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.

I second this suggestion. I like YouTube better as a person, but my company has decided to use MS Stream for all contents, so this would make it easier for me to upload material to Stream, of course creating a local .MP4 file works as well, but takes more time and clicks.

Techsmith folks, please look at this link on Creating Live Stream Events in O365 Stream, particularly the part about manually configuring encoders for live streaming. You can work with MS to create a custom profile for Camtasia in O365 Live Stream with all settings pre-configured. Manual configure is something that can be used with many encoders, and many of your competitors have already. You are not waiting for any API, there are only customized profiles, and manual configuration to an ingest server.



Live Stream is currently in preview, and this might be a good time to look into this for your customers.

Thanks for the link, David; this is interesting. It's not quite the same thing as sending a video edited and encoded by Camtasia up to Stream to be shared. Rather, it is meant to live-broadcast a streaming event (which is why you see Wirecast and similar in there). I am not sure if we could find a way to leverage that to get a 'non-live' video into Stream, but it is interesting!

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...
