Office 365, SharePoint Online

Using Office 365 Video for the first Time

Microsoft Office 365 have recently added the Video Functionality to their subscriptions a cool new set of features indeed, but a new adventure of learning that is needed – hopefully this blog post can assist with the learning.

Depending on your Preview status options in your Microsoft Tenant you may not have the Video feature available to you:

To turn on the Preview option please follow this blog post:

Expand the new Top Nav display button and click Video , if you click the elipses button (…) you can pin to nav bar !

VideoLink

 

Your video page will start to load for the first time so this may take a while (Up to 10minutes)

 

LoadingVideo

 

 

Once Completed you will receive this nice Welcome Message , click Let’s go

WelcomeMessage

One of the first things to note is the URL of the Video Portal

https://yourtenant.sharepoint.com/portals/hub/_layouts/15/videohome.aspx

BlankVideo

 

So let’s create our first Channel

Click the Create Channel Button , Give your channel a name and color:

Click Create

startachannel

Once created you can now upload videos and share with your Security Groups, SharePoint Groups or even unauthenticated users(everyone)

Which I will take you through in my next blog post.

 

Additionally,  I found the below link an informative look into the new Video Portal
