How to delay the change that will block users from uploading to Stream (Classic)

Beginning May 15, 2023 users will be blocked from uploading content to Stream (Classic) unless you take action to delay this change. You can delay this change to as late as August 15, 2023, after which videos will start saving to Stream (on SharePoint) by default. You can access the setting by navigating to the Stream (Classic) Admin center > Stream Migration > Settings. Under “Save videos to Stream (on SharePoint)” change the “Scheduled for” to your desired date. For more information see

After the “scheduled for” date users who attempt to upload to Stream (Classic) will see only the option to upload to Stream (on SharePoint). Users who click on this option will be redirected to the Stream start page ( where they can upload to Stream (on SharePoint). And, all other upload entry point to Stream (classic) will disappear.

We recommend that you begin planning your video content migration soon. While Stream (Classic) will be available until February 15, 2024, we plan to retire some functionality sooner than 2024. View the Stream (Classic) retirement timeline for the most current dates in the retirement process.

See the documentation below to familiarize yourself with the migration process:
