Transcriptions in New Microsoft Stream - Automatic & Manual Uploading

You can no longer add, edit or automatically transcribe videos on New Microsoft Stream. Here is the perfect solution that allows you to do all this & more.

Microsoft stream customers are caught off guard with many drastic changes observed in the new Stream (built on SharePoint) that lacks many functionalities compared to what was present in the Stream (Classic). One such significant gap observed is the lack of transcription capabilities.

Stream (Classic)’s video player used to allow users to:

  • Display transcripts next to the video player
  • Manually edit the transcript
  • Add captions or subtitles to an existing video

However, Stream (built on SharePoint) does not provide any of these capabilities for your videos stored in SharePoint and OneDrive accounts. The Microsoft 365 features roadmap shows that tentatively by September 2021, if you record a meeting on Microsoft Teams with live transcription enabled, it will be viewable in a transcription pane next to the Stream’s video player on SharePoint. However, you will still not be able to edit these transcripts to rectify any errors or add new manual transcripts to your other stream videos.

This has left many businesses in a lurch, scrambling to find an alternative solution as multiple such important functionalities are missing in Stream (built on SharePoint).

The perfect solution to this problem is to opt for an end-to-end enterprise video streaming and management platform that allows you to do all this and much more with your videos. VIDIZMO is a Microsoft Gold Partner and Gartner-recognized enterprise video platform that enables you to utilize:

  • Automatically transcribe all your videos into 39 languages
