How to add a co-owner to your Microsoft Stream (Classic) videos

Updated on

This guide will provide you with the steps to add a co-owner to your Microsoft Stream (Classic) videos. This is recommended when the uploader is not the only one who should be able to administer the videos (e.g., a TA records content for a course).

As of August 29, 2023, Stream (on SharePoint) will replace Microsoft Stream (Classic). We highly recommend that you do NOT upload any new content to MS Stream.

Before August 29, 2023, you will need to download any videos you have in Microsoft Stream (Classic). If you need to download a video that was recorded or uploaded by someone else, you will not be able to download it unless that person makes you a co-owner.  Similarly, if you are assigning someone to download any Stream (Classic) videos that you uploaded or recorded, they will not be able to do that unless you make them a co-owner of each of the videos.

For complete details about this change, please review the following documentation:

Before you begin

Log in to your Microsoft 365 account at, using your UTORid and password.
