Am a keen follower of Microsoft's SharePoint Blog and proud to provide this direct from the Microsoft Tech Community:



We are excited to share that we are releasing video page templates in SharePoint Pages and News. With this feature, we’re enabling authors to create video centric page content. These templates are available in both SharePoint and Stream, making it easy to showcase video with a customized and branded pages experience from either application.


Creating a video page from Stream Web App

This feature enables the creation of Pages and News outside of the SharePoint platform. Navigate to a video on the Stream Web App. Under the share dropdown, you will see a new entry point: Create video news post.



Tip: This entry point is only available when the video is stored on a SharePoint site where you have editing permission. If you are not seeing the entry point, try copying the video to another site.


Within the template picker, select your template type, page type, and any related documents you want to include on your page.



Tip: Video metadata, such as the title and description, is copied to the page so make sure it is up to date.


After finalizing your selections in the template picker, go to the canvas for editing. Edit your video page like other SharePoint Pages, then publish and share when you are ready!




Create a video page from a SharePoint Site

The video page templates surface in the Page and News template pickers within a SharePoint site.



Choose a video page template, then add your video to the Stream web part and edit the rest of your page before publishing.


Features and capabilities mentioned in this blog post, are demonstrated in the following video with Katelyn Helms (Microsoft) and Vesa Juvonen (Microsoft).
