Brock ITS urges users to save Stream (Classic) files

Brock users have until mid-February to migrate video and transcriptions files saved in the legacy Stream (Classic) platform.

The platform was replaced with Stream (on SharePoint) in August 2021 and will be retired by Microsoft on Feb. 15. Users will no longer be able to access Stream (Classic) files following next month’s retirement date.

Brock’s Information Technology Services (ITS) team has provided detailed instructions on manually downloading Stream (Classic) videos along with FAQs about the change. Anyone needing additional assistance is encouraged to submit an ITS service request.

Users who are interested in moving their Stream (Classic) videos to YuJa can consult YuJa documentation on how to upload a video or contact the Centre for Pedagogical Innovation for more information.
