Changes to Recordings in Microsoft Teams
Microsoft has changed the way MS Teams meeting recordings are stored and accessed.
Why is this changing now?
Microsoft has required all clients to migrate to the new platform.
Where do I find my Microsoft Teams meeting recordings?
When a meeting has been recorded, Teams adds a meeting summary “card” to the meeting chat that includes a link to the recording and the auto-generated transcript once that recording has finished processing.
Meeting recordings will now be stored in OneDrive or Sharepoint based off of the below circumstances.
If you record a normal, scheduled Teams meeting, that recording will be saved to a Recordings folder in your OneDrive. All other meeting participants are granted read access to that file. You can manage this file like other content in OneDrive.
If you record a channel-based meeting, such as a meeting in a class team, that recording will be saved to the team channel’s Files tab in a Recordings folder. All the members of the team will have access to the meeting recording.
If you accidentally delete a meeting recording file, you can restore it from the Recycle Bin.
What will happen to my MS Teams videos from last year?
You will still be able to access videos that were recorded in teams prior to the migration in MS Stream Classic. In the coming months, Microsoft plans to provide a migration tool which will allow us to move content from that service to the new Stream on OneDrive and SharePoint
How do I record Teams meetings now?
To start a meeting recording, you still choose the Start recording option from the More options (···) menu in the meeting. Soon, choosing this option will automatically start the Live Transcription process, too. (Right now, this only works in non-channel meetings. Microsoft plans for this to be available in channel meetings in the near future.)
What are the differences between Stream Classic and New Stream?
The following features are unavailable on New Stream:
- Captions cannot be uploaded and attached to videos.
- Videos cannot be edited or trimmed within the New Stream interface.
- Videos cannot be embedded on sites such as Blackboard.
- Automatic transcriptions are not available when recording a channel-based meeting. Transcription is still available in recordings that are made in meetings that are scheduled between individuals, and recordings made in break-out rooms.
- Video channels (not Teams channels) are no longer available.
- Microsoft plans to address these feature gaps in the coming months, with creating and editing transcripts and caption files at the top of their priority list.
- Links to videos can be shared publicly, including for viewers outside of TROY.
- Meeting recordings (and other video content) can be managed just like other files in OneDrive, Teams, and SharePoint.
- Videos uploaded via OneDrive will automatically appear in stream.office.com.
- Find meeting recordings based on what was said in the meeting using the transcript.
