This tutorial will go through how to create a recording of yourself with another person within Teams.


1. Either go into the group chat of the people you want in the video or the chat of the person you want to record with and start a video call with them.


2. Once in the call, click on the three dots to bring up more settings to choose from.


3. Click on the "Start Recording" button to begin recording your video.


*At this point, you can do continuous takes until you get it right or you can go line by line and trip and cut the video later. If you do it in one take you do not need to worry about trimming or cutting the video.*


4. Once you are done recording, go back into the settings and select "Stop Recording."


5. After you are done recording, you will get a popup in the chat like the first picture above. That means the video is processing and will soon be done. The second picture is when the video is done and ready to view.


6. After the video is done processing, click on the three buttons and then "Open in Microsoft Stream."


7. Once in Microsoft Stream, click on the three dots to open more options. After that, click on "Download Video" to download it to your computer.


8. You will then be able to find your downloaded video in the Downloads section of your File Explorer. It will look something like this.


9. You will need to right-click on the video and select "Open With" and then "Photos."


10. Once it is open in Photos, click on "Edit & Create" and then "Create a video with text."


11. Here, you can rename the video to something new.


12. Once in, you have multiple options at your disposal. (For the purpose of this How-To, you will mainly use these first three. Feel free to experiment with the other options though.)

  • Trim: Allows you to cut out the beginning or end of your video.
  • Split: Splits your video into two different videos wherever you have the video paused at. This allows you to cut videos up and delete parts that you may not want anymore.
  • Text: Allows you to add text to your video.

13. After you are done making your edits, click on "Finish Video."


14. Make sure you have the video set to export as 1080p (the highest quality setting) and then click "Export."


15. Export the video to the place/folder where you would like it to go. Then click "Export" again.


16. Please wait for the video to export as it may take some time depending on the length of your video. After it is done exporting, you can use the video however you want.
