Option 2. Share an Unlisted Weblink

 Available for: Standard, Pro, Admin, Owner 

 Sharing an unlisted web link allows you to share videos with anybody. Non-Swivl users can watch a video as well. Therefore, this method is not private or secure.

As a reminder, this is the only Sharing option for Standard users, so when you share via a web link, the recipients with whom you share the link won't be able to leave comments directly on the video.

To generate a web link, please follow the steps:

  1. Find the video you wish to share in Library; 
  2. Click on  the ‘Share’ button;
  3. Select ‘Weblink’ option;
  4.  Select the email box or any other channel to share the video or just click Copy the link.

Option 3. Share to a Group

 Available for: Pro, Admin, Owner

This option allows you to add videos to a group of your teammates so they can watch your videos and leave comments. 

Any videos that your group-mates share with a group will be displayed in the Group tab.
