Protecting externally integrated course videos

  • Updated

In your online course / conference or membership, you want to provide videos for direct viewing.

To do this, you choose a video platform on which you upload your videos. You can then add the link or embed code to the content of your online course / conference or membership so that the video can be viewed directly from the course.



How can you protect the video that not everyone can watch or even share the link?

The various video platforms offer different features for this purpose. Please refer to the seller to obtain current information.

Examples of protection settings:

Most sellers offer similar features such as "private", "not listed", "password protection" or "only accessible via a certain domain."

Depending on the feature, the video is protected from certain actions.

Private: That usually means that only whoever has the link can see the video.

Depending on the seller, this setting is not suitable for the display in the online course or for the product cover.

Not listed: The video is not listed on the platform and cannot be accessed via search or your channel. 

You can use this setting. However, someone with access to the course can share the link with others.

Password protection: You provide a password for the video and only those who know the password can view the video.

This feature is already provided by individual sellers in the free plans and is another variant for protecting your videos. However, the link and the password can also be passed on to people who have not purchased your course.

Domain restriction: This is the safest way to protect the video, but is currently only supported by Vimeo from the Pro plan.
Here you can set on which page your video will be played.

Provide there or your provided domain in the custom domain. If someone passes on the link to your video, they cannot view it as long as they do not access it from the stored domain. 

Setting options for the video portals:

Portal Not listed Password protection Domain restriction Help document
Vimeo hide this video from (Only Plus + PRO + Business )  Access only possible with a password Only on sites I have chosen (only for Plus + PER + Business )  Video settings at a glance
YouTube not listed - - Privacy settings
Dailymotion Private password-protected - Content visibility

as of 11/2017

Please note: 

Before selling the product, please test whether the video is also displayed with the respective setting.

On YouTube, for example, videos that are set to "private" cannot be used as product videos.
