Microsoft's new service is like YouTube for the enterprise
"It's called Stream and it's supposed to let people easily work together with one another on videos, and then share that content both inside and outside their company.
In the realm of consumer web services, video is ascending. Facebook has been emphasising video posts on its popular social network, while YouTube is still going strong. Microsoft is trying to take some of that mojo and bring it to the business world with the launch of an open beta for Stream on Monday.
Stream allows users to log in to a video portal that lets them see all of the videos that are shared with them, and do things like subscribe to channels, search for subject matter they want to explore and follow co-workers whose videos they want to see.
People who create videos can upload footage to the service by dragging and dropping files from their computers. Stream will handle the processing and let people add titles, descriptions and even a caption file, so that hearing-impaired viewers can read along with what's being said.”
