How to verify integration is successful

Once you finished with the integration steps above, you should validate that the integration is successful by following these steps:

  1. Go to the Microsoft Stream Videos page, and choose one of your videos.

  2. Wait for the video to load and press the shortcut keys alt+shift+p, which will toggle the Peer5 overlay.

  3. Now you should see the Peer5 overlay with statistics for your personal viewing session. If you open another browser tab with the same stream, you should be able to see P2P traffic between the 2 tabs.
