The Office of Teaching, Learning & Technology is introducing Kaltura as the new Digital Media Platform for the University of Iowa. Kaltura offers similar features that ShareStream provides, and has several new features as well.
ShareStream was shut down on June 21st 2019. The University of Iowa's contract with ShareStream ended after June 21st. Today, the ShareStream integration in ICON, links to ShareStream content, and viewing media in ShareStream no longer work. https://teach.uiowa.edu/identifying-sharestream-content has examples of what content looks like in ShareStream.
If you would like to have your media migrated from ShareStream into Kaltura, fill out this form https://workflow.uiowa.edu/form/sharestream by June 1st 2019, and we will move your ShareStream content for you to Kaltura after June 17th 2019.
We have several point-and-click training sessions for Kaltura, visit https://compliance.hr.uiowa.edu/my_training/course_enroll_details/965 to sign up for training today. Other resources on Kaltura include:

Past 90 Days
Update: This problem has been resolved. Please contact the ITS Help Desk if you experience any other problems using this service.
Original Notice: Videos uploaded to ShareStream's Pick-n-Play interface are getting stuck in the "processing" step.
Playback of existing files in ShareStream are not impacted, and instructors can upload media through the MediaManager interface and add videos to their courses in ICON as a workaround.
ITS staff are working with the software vendor to resolve this problem, and we'll update this alert as more information becomes available.
An update to ShareStream will be applied. The service may be intermittently unavailable to end users during the maintenance window.
ShareStream will be upgraded during this time. End users may not be able to use the service for the first 30 minutes of this window but it should be available for the rest of the window.
ShareStream will be offline during the Data Center Operations & Services Maintenance.
ICON (D2L) will be online, but may experience brief connectivity issues. ICON (Canvas) will not be impacted.
Other enterprise instructional technologies (UI Capture, Wiki, etc.) should not be affected.
Maintenance is planned for ShareStream. This service will be available, but with intermediate connectivity and performance throughout the day. We will update this notice as soon as the work is completed.
