You can search for content in Microsoft Stream from the top of any page with the Search box in the application bar. Stream allows you to search for videos, channels, people, and browse groups.

All content in Microsoft Stream is security trimmed, so if you don't have access to a video, channel, or group it won't show up in Stream or your search results.

Deep search on what's said in the video

If you have the right Microsoft Stream license, when searching for videos Microsoft Stream will find videos based not only on the title and description, but also based on what's being said in the video. Search results based on the transcript of the video allow you to jump to the exact point in the video that has the information you are looking for.

  1. From Browse > Videos > Search for videos or the Search box at the top of Microsoft stream, type in a word or phrase to search for.
  2. When you see video search results with time codes (@00:10) you can click on any of the lines to start playing the video from that specific point in time.
