When you upload a video to your Swivl Library, it starts off completely private by default.
There are four options to share videos:
Direct Share to other Swivl cloud users*
Share to a Group*
Share an Unlisted Weblink
To begin, select a video you wish to share, and either click on the button 'Share' and select the appropriate option from the dropdown menu or choose from the quick select option on the video thumbnail in your Library.
1. Direct Share to other Swivl cloud users*
When you select Direct Share and enter someone's email address, whomever receives this email will either prompted to sign in to their existing account or to sign up for Swivl cloud in order to view the video. The Swivl cloud user who receives your video needs only a Standard account at minimum to view and leave comments on your video.
In the future, any videos that have been shared with you directly on Swivl cloud will appear in "Feed-Shared with me"
2. Share to a Group*
Share to a Group: for Pro Team Members only. Allows you to add other Swivl cloud users from your team member listing so multiple team members can watch your videos and leave comments. Ideal for sharing videos for PLCs, Mentor Groups, and PD.
You must be Pro user on a Team to share to a Group you're part of, but the users you add to your Group can be Standard or higher to view the videos and leave comments.
In the future, any videos that have been shared with you directly on Swivl cloud will appear in "Feed-Shared with me" and can further filter by "Group Feed"
3. Share an Unlisted Weblink
Sharing an unlisted weblink allows you to share videos with anyone using a unique, unlisted URL regardless of them having a Swivl cloud user account. To reiterate this, note that whomever has access to this weblink will not be required to sign in to Swivl cloud to view this video and therefore, this method is not private or secure. We recommend using Direct Share or Share to a Group whenever possible.
When you click Share Unlisted Weblink, we will generate the unique weblink for you to share.
IMPORTANT: Do not share the URL that is in your browser's address bar. You must share the unique weblink created for you otherwise your recipients will not be able to access the video.
As a reminder, this the only Sharing option for Standard users, so when you share via weblink, the recipients with whom you share the link won't be able to leave comments directly on the video. If you wish to receive comments on your video, you must select Direct Share or Share to Group and you must be Pro or higher to initiate the Share.
4. Embed project
Embedding a video creates an HTML code to paste into an LMS, webpage, blog, etc. Your video will be directly viewable by anyone with access. You must be a Pro user to share via this method.
First, select your desired settings then copy the generated embed code that will appear at the bottom.
