    I shared 3 videos within three different photostreams which doesn't really work. I can create a photostream that includes video but I cannot play the videos. You press play and it will load infinitely on either iPhone or iPad. It does work when you publish the photostream to a website. Anyone?

    Same here.. since the iOS 7 GoldenMaster, Videos in Photosteams stops working ;-(

    With the last Beta versions it works fine.

    Having a similar issue. I've shared a short video to a friend's video stream. It plays fine on my Apple TV (6.0 f/w) and on the iPad where the video originated however he cannot play it on his iPad mini and I cannot play it on my iPhone. All devices on iOS 7.

    Same problem here, it just will never play. We tried different videos, some of them just a few seconds long, but to no success. We are all using iOS7, and none of us can play the videos.

    Is there anyone on this forum that made this work somehow?
    I would really like this feature, but I just can't find a way to do it.

    Yeah I can't play shared videos on my iphone or iPad, but they weirdly play fine on my Apple TV since yesterday's update.

    My or shared photostream or both?

    I can see why it wouldn't work in "my" photostream ignoring the obvious PHOTOstream but I use "my" photostream as the screen saver on my ATV. Be awkward if videos just started playing however I recognize my ability to remove them from "my" photostream if that was a problem.

    Meh, just tossing ideas out there.


    On this, like I mentioned in my previous post. What happens during the screen saver on your ATV? I never tried it.

    I must be confused but I thought that as of iOS 7, all videos (as long as below 5 minutes) will be included in our photostream. I know it works if I share a photostream with someone else, but I mostly use photostream to wirelessly download pics to my Macs.

    Was I wrong?
