MC353485: Microsoft Stream: View and edit video/audio file information

We will be updating the web player for audio & video files that are stored in OneDrive and SharePoint (including when those files are embedded in Teams, Yammer, and SharePoint web parts) with two new features called About and Custom Thumbnail. This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 93224 and 93225.

This feature enables users with edit permissions to add and edit a title or description on their video or audio file. Viewers will be able to see this information along with non-editable fields like upload date, owner name, filename, and area path.

This feature enables users with edit permissions to change the default thumbnail on their video or audio by uploading an image or selecting a frame from the video. This custom thumbnail will be used throughout Microsoft 365.
