Summary:
Microsoft Stream is updating to reduce storage space usage by not creating new versions for metadata changes to video and audio files. This change, associated with Roadmap ID 395380, will be implemented worldwide from mid-July to late August 2024. Admins don't need to take action, but should inform users and update documentation. For more details, visit the provided Microsoft Support link.

Details:
Video files tend to be very large and consume lots of space against your Microsoft OneDrive and Microsoft SharePoint storage quotas. Currently, when you make metadata changes such as title, description, transcripts, chapters, interactivity, thumbnails, media settings, etc. to files in Microsoft Stream, each of those changes cause new versions to be created. Each of these versions in Microsoft OneDrive and Microsoft SharePoint count the full file size towards consumed storage quota. Thus, for large video and audio files, these versions cause your storage consumption to quickly increase.

To prevent this, we are changing how Microsoft Stream handles versioning. Any changes made to metadata of files from Stream will stop making versions, thus preventing storage from increasing as rapidly as it has in the past.
