Besides video uploading, there are means to embed your video content.
What’s the difference and why all the users do not use this option if it's so cool?
First of all, when you upload videos to the Gurucan platform, they are protected and can’t be downloaded. My colleague Iliya wrote about it in the article.
But there are cases when uploading videos using links can be convenient enough. And it is. But anywhere without potholes. And you get the idea I suppose.
Of course, such links are not completely protected. And some cunning dude сan steal your videos somehow. I won’t do a disservice by the description of these methods, so, let’s move on.
I propose to discuss the following
Where such links can be used
How to set them up
Are private settings really private?
How do your students see such videos?
1. Where such links can be used
meal plans while creating recipes
2. How to set everything up
You need to add a Vimeo video to your lesson.
STEP 1 Add content
STEP 2 Select Vimeo
STEP 3 Set up settings in Vimeo
Private - your video won't be displayed both - in a web browser and in the app
2. Password - the most secure setting
Users who you didn't share it with see the following
3. Hide from Vimeo - your video will be displayed both - in a web browser and in the app
4. Only me - videos are unavailable
5. Public - your video will be displayed both - in a web browser and in the app
6. Specific domains - videos are unavailable
STEP 4 Copy the link
Add the link
Also, you can use a code to embed the Vimeo video to the Html block.
But note that this video won't be displayed in the app. You can upvote for this feature
STEPS 1 and 2 are the same besides Wistia selecting
STEP 3 Private settings
Activate privacy mode in the Account section
STEP 4 Copy the link
Here it's this tiny piece
STEPS 1 and 2 are the same as usual
Move on to the channel settings and select Manage videos
To visibility then
If you select a private mode, your students can't watch it at all
So, you select Unlisted
One more cool option is Embedding - you can disable it in this way
3. How do your students see such videos?
Vimeo. Browser version
Wistia. Browser version
YouTube. Browser version
Well, we discussed everything it seems. Note that this way of embedding videos isn't secure enough. We propose to upload videos directly to Gurucan.
