It is hosted in MS Stream! Embed Forms in Stream Video. Another cool thing you can do with MS Stream is to embed MS Forms inside of the videos. An example could be an onboarding video where HR might collect some information or do a quiz while the new employee watches the video. This is where you set up the Form within an MS Stream video.
- From the search results listed, select your Teams site. All members of the Teams site Ornithology 1001 will have viewer permission to the video. To change the permissions, click or tap Apply. The Microsoft Stream page for the video appears. The video is no longer companywide. The video viewing is now limited to the Ornithology 1001 Teams site.
- Stream, for the name, has a long way to go to be a functional streaming service missing something as basic as guest access. What is extra annoying is with the new Teams meetings 'broadcast' feature, guests are viewing the feed via Stream. Thus they've made guest access work with Stream for that service.

How To Use Microsoft Stream In Teams
To purchase Microsoft Stream for an organization, you must be a Microsoft 365 Global Admin or Billing Admin, or you must create a new Microsoft 365 tenant.
Microsoft Stream includes a base amount of storage. A Microsoft Stream tenant receives a fixed allocation of 500 GB of storage and an extra 0.5 GB of storage per licensed user* as illustrated in the following table. For more information about how to purchase the separate storage add-on, see Microsoft Stream Storage add-on.
Microsoft Stream’s storage is available to all videos in the tenant and is pooled for use by all users, making it easier to manage availability of storage across your organization. Only the original video file size counts against your pooled storage. Transcoded videos, thumbnails, channel poster, subtitle and caption files, do not contribute towards your storage.
Microsoft 365 Enterprise K1/F1 users are not included and do not contribute to extra storage quota.
