Uploading Videos to MS Stream

TWU has provided access to Microsoft Stream, which is like our very own YouTube, but accessible only to members of the TWU community.

Accessing Stream

Visit web.microsoftstream.com and sign in with your TWU Pass credentials, including your full TWU email address firstname.lastname@mytwu.ca.


Click 'My content', then 'Groups'.


Click the title of your course group.

Your group is named according to the course you are taking.


Click 'Channels' in the group.


Upload Videos

  • Either drag and drop files to the window, or click the link to navigate to your video file.

Zoom recordings will be in .mp4 format.


Add Video Details

  • Name the video to make it easy for your classmates and instructor to find, including the date of the recording.
  • Include a description or hashtags (optional)
  • Choose a thumbnail (optional)
  • Once the file has uploaded and has been processed, click 'Publish'.
  • For now, don't change the permissions or options.

Videos that you upload to channels that are in a private group will only be accessible to members of that group.


Subsequent Videos

The next time you need to upload a video, start by clicking 'My content', then 'Channels', select the appropriate channel, and repeat the upload process above.


Manage your computer storage

After you have confirmed that your video is in the proper channel AND you have tested that it plays, you should move the original video file off of your computer and either onto an external drive (optional) or simply delete it.
