Schedule a player release

There may be instances where you are ready to deploy a player, but are not ready to allow viewing of the content. To accommodate this, Vidyard allows you to schedule the release of a player. Scheduled players can be embedded on your website and will not display the video content until the specified date and time.

Consider using scheduled players for:

  • Weekly webinars - Embed a live chat platform on a landing page and drive traffic to a weekly on-demand training session.
  • Special content - Drive subscriptions or build hype by scheduling delivery at some point in the future.
  • Time content - Schedule your video delivery to coincide with your blog, website or YouTube channel.

Visitors attempting to access your video content ahead of schedule will be shown a countdown to when the content will be available:
