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.
