Allow permissions to be set on the video itself.

Currently the permissions can only be set at the channel. This works well for default access but there is a need to be able to secure videos to a smaller group of people or a few individuals. Creating a channel every time there is an new access requirement would create a very unmanageable video portal.

    AGREED, why is it that you can't implement a permission set that allows upload, but not delete of other videos the uploader does not own? It's like relying on the honor system, well this doesn't work in Higher-Ed. We were going to implement this solution for a massive video hub and move thousands of videos from another system over to Office 365 Video, there would be a channel for every course, but to allow students to upload a video, which may be for an assignment or something, also gives them the permission to delete other videos. That is just common sense to me.

    Would you let other YouTube video users delete each others videos?

    We have the same need at our company. Channels are great for high level department based curated content, but UGC (User Generated Content) is usually meant to be targeting a specific team of people. We have 30,000 employees, and don't want to police every upload. Our hope is to allow an advanced option to grant video specific ACL (Access Control List) to a specific video, or a playlist).

    We have the same need at our company. Not having the individual video permission is problematic. In many cases a new channel is needed because one of the videos need to be locked down to a specific audience.
