Use the Stream web part

When you add a modern page to a site, you add and customize web parts, which are the building blocks of your page. This article focuses on the Microsoft Stream web part. The Stream web part will display a Stream video or channel on your published page. Additionally, videos will also display directly in the SharePoint mobile app for iOS and the SharePoint mobile app for Android.

Microsoft Stream is a new video service that uses the power of intelligent enterprise video to enable knowledge sharing, easier communication, and connectivity in a secure enterprise environment. Microsoft Stream is the successor to Office 365 Video; however, the two services will co-exist during the transition period. Both are built on Azure Media Services and use the same streaming video technology, allowing playback at scale across any device. For more information on how Stream works, see the Microsoft Stream web site.
