Can I allow public (anonymous/no auth) access to a video uploaded to the video portal in O365/SharePoint Online? There are some settings to "allow external users" access to certain site collections - even when I turn this one and allow external access to /search/pub I still can't access the videos without a login prompt.

Anyone know how to do this?

No, O365 Video is not targeted at a YouTube type scenario and thus anonymous or "external" access is not allowed.

In Office 365, you can use Sway to upload and display public videos.
