Transfer a player to a different group

If you have a player that you would like to be visible in another one of your organization's groups, you can transfer that player to a new group.

Players can be transferred out of any of your groups and into another group to which you belong. A transferred player duplicates any videos that it contains into the target group's video library, but transfers the player itself. The player UUID will remain the same.


  • You must be a user in both the sending and receiving groups. 
  • You must have the Transfer Players to Groups permission enabled in both groups. 

Important Note: 

Analytics history for a player will not transfer to the receiving group.

To transfer a player to a group:

From the Content menu click Players.

Hover your cursor over the player and click the Advanced, then Transfer to Group

Hovering over a player to click Release to Group.

  1. Select the group to which you want to send the player.
    Release to group window.

    Note: The videos within the player will be duplicated and left in the video library of the original group. The player itself will be moved.
  2. Click Transfer.

        Note: If you require a large number of assets to be transferred, please raise a ticket with the Vidyard support team. If doing this, you will lose any analytics that your players have collected.
