    Hi,

    Yes you can, but it might depend on the video file extensions, or browser compatibility.

    If you have a video file which you cannot play directly in Microsoft Teams, try in a different web browser, or use the Desktop app (preferred).

    If you still have issues playing videos, then the best way is to do as follows:

    1. Upload the video to Microsoft Stream (https://web.microsoftstream.com).
    2. Get the video URL.
    3. Add a Microsoft Stream Tab to the channel in Teams and add the video URL in Stream.

    Best regards,

    Hi JayLee!
    Agree with Leon, it depends on your video extensions and browser compability.

    We recommend you using Microsoft Stream within Teams. You can try to follow these steps as follow:
    *Upload the movie file to Microsoft Stream
    *Set permissions on the file (All users or just Team members)
    *Create a Stream Channel and add the movie to it.
    *In Teams, create a Stream Tab, you can either:

    • Just add the sole video you created
    • Add the channel so if you have further videos in the future just upload them to that Stream Channel
