Second phase - Stream (Classic) Migration of video content owned by individual users


What is the Microsoft Stream migration project?

Microsoft announced that they are retiring Stream (Classic) in June 2024. All video content must be migrated out of Stream (Classic) and into Stream (on SharePoint) by this date.

Therefore, IT are migrating all published video content (circa 180,000 videos) from Stream (Classic) into Stream (on SharePoint). We will be completing the migration over three phases, based on how Microsoft defines the different types of containers of recordings currently stored in Stream (Classic). 

This article provides information on the second phase of the Stream (Classic) Migration of video content owned by an individual user account. For more information on the overall migration project, please refer to this guidance

Second Phase - Migration of video content owned by a user account

Updated 4th April 2024

This phase has now been completed. All video content owned by individual users is split alphabetically by first name across the following SharePoint sites:

A to F https://leeds365.sharepoint.com/sites/StreamClassicContentUserOwned1

G to K https://leeds365.sharepoint.com/sites/StreamClassicContentUserOwned2

L to P https://leeds365.sharepoint.com/sites/StreamClassicContentUserOwned3

Q to Z https://leeds365.sharepoint.com/sites/StreamClassicContentUserOwned4

For example, if your name is Joe Bloggs, your content will be stored in G to K

Please note, videos that have been shared with you may be spread across the 4 sites, this will include videos that have been shared with everyone in the organisation. However, all the videos that you own will be stored in the corresponding site, as per your first name initial.

These SharePoint sites are repositories for migrated video content and it is not possible to add any new content to these sites. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

From 11th March IT will begin migrating videos that only have a user or users listed as an owner in Stream (Classic).  We anticipate this migration phase will take 2-4 weeks to complete.  

Videos that form part of this phase will be migrated into a newly created SharePoint site into a folder named 'Stream Migrated Videos'.

Your video will only be included as part of this migration phase if:   

1. It has only a user or users listed as an owner under the video permissions in Stream (Classic).   

2. It has not been shared with a companywide Channel.   

3. It is not owned by a Microsoft 365 Group (Team or SharePoint site). Any videos owned by a Microsoft 365 group formed part of the first phase of the migration.

Please see the example below that shows a video in Stream (Classic) that has only a user selected as an owner and has not been shared with a companywide Channel or is owned by a M365 Group. This would be included in this migration phase

Please see an example below of a video that would not be included as part of this migration phase, as it has been shared with a Company Wide Channel. Identifiable by the blue circle icon (does not have ‘owner’ or ‘display’ ticked). 

Please see an example below of a video that would not be included as part of this migration phase, as in addition to being owned by a user it is owned by a M365 Group (Team or SharePoint site). Identifiable by an orange square icon with ‘owner’ ticked.

Any existing links for the videos in Stream (Classic) will continue to work until April 2025. If there is a published link to a video in Stream (Classic) and the video is migrated, that old link will redirect to the video in its new location until April 2025. This also applies to videos that have been embedded in Minerva. Following this date, the owner of the respective video will need to generate a new link to the video from Stream (on SharePoint).

Important Considerations

If there are multiple users listed as the owner of the video this will not affect the migration and the video will be migrated as part of this phase. 

If the video has a M365 group (Team or SharePoint site) listed as an owner, the video will not form part of this migration phase.  

If the video has been shared with a Company Wide Channel the video will not form part of this migration phase. This will form part of the third migration phase.  

The permissions are retained when the video is migrated, so anyone who has shared ownership or view permissions will still have access to view the video once it has been migrated. 

Please be aware you may see other videos listed that you are not an owner of. Rest assured these are videos that have been shared with you and migrated to this SharePoint site.
