Technical Bulletin MC353485 · Published Apr 5, 2022

Message Summary

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

When this will happen:

Targeted Release (select users and entire org): will begin rolling out in mid-April and expect to complete rollout late April.

Standard: will begin rolling out in mid-May and expect to complete rollout mid-June.

Government: will begin rolling out in early July and expect to complete rollout late July.

How this will affect your organization:

About will enable users, with edit permissions, to add and edit a title/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.

Add title and description
View image in new tab

Custom thumbnail, located in Video Settings, will allow users with edit permissions to change the default thumbnail by uploading an image or selecting a frame from the video. This custom thumbnail will be used throughout Microsoft 365.
