Check your eCDN settings for Microsoft Teams Premium

Share on Social

In enterprise communication, top-quality video is a must, especially for important events like CEO town halls. However, streaming videos can strain networks, especially when scaling to hundreds, thousands, or even more simultaneous viewers. 

Playback of videos from Microsoft Teams events uses adaptive bitrate streaming (ABR) delivered as a unicast stream. This means that each click-to-watch creates a new streaming session, potentially leading to an overloaded and slowed network with a poor user experience.  

There’s good news! Microsoft partners with trusted third-party enterprise content delivery network (eCDN) providers like us to ensure every viewer experiences video at its best. 

Ensure Your eCDN Settings Are Correct 

Transitioning to Teams Premium alters eCDN settings, often changing the selection from Vbrick Universal eCDN to Microsoft eCDN. Vbrick customers should verify their eCDN provider and, if changed, follow Microsoft’s instructions to revert to Vbrick Universal eCDN  

Below is a screenshot of what your settings should look like when you turn the Microsoft eCDN off.    

And here are the instructions for selecting Vbrick Universal eCDN.
