Social player settings

Player Social Settings allow you to determine if and how your player can be shared by your viewers. You can turn on or off the ability to re-embed the player, and you can also set the social sharing options, which determines how this player can be shared socially by viewers.

Note: Player settings give you control over each player you create. If you make a change to the player settings, your changes will apply to all current and future embed locations. These settings impact individual players — if you instead want to choose the default settings for your future players, see Default Player Settings
