Office 365: Video

A few weeks back Office 365 Video made an appearance so I’ve been playing withOffice 365 Video it to see how we and our clients can make use of it.

What is it?

Office 365 Video is a new video hosting service available to everyone in your tenant allowing them to upload video files to cloud. Great for hosting training sessions, meetings or product reviews to share with colleagues or even to the public.

Once you have logged into the portal you will land on the home page where you can highlight videos to show up.

From the main screen you can click Channels to see groups of videos. Here I have added a Team Meetings channel so we can record our weekly meetings, upload them and share with everyone in the business. Next we will be looking at building a library of internal training videos.

Office 365 Video Channels

Creating a new channel is easy, just give it a name and highlight it with a chosen colour.

Once you have created your new Channel you can start uploading videos to share. Boy don’t I look grumpy!

Office 365 Video Team Meetings

A great feature is the ability to click on a video and get the embed code which enables you to easily insert the video into your public website or email marketing campaign. Also you can share the video by sending out a link from Outlook.

So there you have it a very quick tour of Office 365 Video. I really like it for the ability to publicly share content. If you run a product support desk why not make a few tutorial videos and have your support team share them with end users. Record team meetings and share them with everyone in your company so if anyone wants to refer back to points raised they can or anyone who couldn’t make the meeting can catch up.
