Save a video to Microsoft Stream

You can save a presentation as a video file and upload it to the Microsoft video-sharing site, Microsoft Stream. It's an enterprise video service where people in an organization can upload, view, and share videos securely. Office 365 organization subscribers have access to this service from within PowerPoint for Office 365.

  1. Select File > Export, and then select Publish to Microsoft Stream.

What is Microsoft Stream, and who can use it?

Office 365 business or education subscribers have access to this service from within PowerPoint for Office 365.

Microsoft Stream is similar to sites like YouTube in that it's an online site where videos are stored in the cloud. But it differs from those sites in being restricted to use by organizations for their members only.

Microsoft Stream lets Office 365 business or education subscribers securely upload videos and share them with other members of their organization.

This means that Microsoft Streamisn't available to use with a personal Microsoft account (Hotmail, outlook.com, msn.com, or live.com).
