iCloud Photo Library vs. Photo Stream – What’s the difference?

I recently failed in an impromptu conversation when someone asked me to explain the difference between iCloud Photo Library and iCloud Photo Stream.  So, I figured it out and posted this video overview of the basic differences.

The key point to remember is that iCloud Photo Library allows you to store ALL of your photos and videos in iCloud, while Photo Stream uploads new photos (NOT videos) and sends them to all of your devices where you have Photo Stream turned on. It only stores the most recent 30 days’ worth of photos (up to 1,000 photos).
