Making a recording for Microsoft Stream

There are a few different ways of making video recordings but for the moment we recommend using Microsoft Teams as this should be the most familiar to you.

Stream camera UI

Record your screen, create webcam videos, and add effects directly in Microsoft 365. The Stream screen recorder can be used for explainer videos, product demos, or quick webcam videos without leaving M365. You can add inking, stickers, images, music, text, replace your background, and record multiple clips. Please note that Stream creates .webm files which can be edited in Clipchamp. If you wish to edit in another application, you may need to convert the .webm file to .mp4
