Allow a Guest Link for a video to play in the browser
When I share a video from OneDrive for Business using a guest link, I want viewers to be able to play the video in the browser.
Currently, they have to download the video before playing it.
Now when you open a video link that works for “anyone”, the video will play for any recipient, on any browser, even if they’re not signed in.
without this Option I'll sto to use OnDrive

Please enable this, with larger file size limits.

Very anxious for this fundamental functionality
I agree - in our school we share videos with families and on a computer, it requires them to download the video. However, when using a smart phone the link will play without a download. Would love to see the video links in OneDrive play directly without a download on all computers. Thanks!
We use Onedrive for Business to share one on one webinar's to each client. Currently it requires the document to be downloaded. Would love to have it streamed directly in the browser.
The ability to embed videos stored in OneDrive for business is a function very much wanted.
I think it would be nice if could stream video just by link, without the need to invite people anymore.
I find I have to share 'business' video using my own personal OneDrive, as this does have the streaming functionality.
Hello - I agree wholeheartedly with this. I need to be able to embed "streamable" audio (MP3s) and, in some cases, video on my Wordpress site. I do not want folks to have to do download the content first. The idea is to allow the native media player to appear in a post. This is possible (with some tweaking of the link) with Dropbox, for example. Cheers!
