A sharing page allows you to deliver videos on a dedicated, branded, and distraction-free page. Whether you have a single video or a playlist, simply send a link to the sharing page—it's the easiest way to get content in front of your audience.
- Design a sharing page to match your brand
- Restrict access to your sharing page with single sign on (SSO)
- Add integrations to your sharing page, like third-party tracking scripts and analytics tools
A sharing page is applied to all players within a folder. When set up at the parent folder, all folders in your account (including GoVideo users) will inherit the same sharing page.
If you would like the players in a folder to use a different sharing page (different branding, security, integrations, etc.), you can override the inherited sharing page and create a separate page altogether.
- Belong to a role with the Edit Branded Sharing Pages permission enabled
Open your sharing page settings
Use the Change Folder button to ensure you're in the folder with the sharing page that you want to edit.
- From the Vidyard dashboard, select Channel > Sharing Page
- Select Edit to open the sharing page settings
Set up a domain for your sharing page
You have the option to use either a Vidyard subdomain (a page hosted by Vidyard) or your own domain for your sharing page.
Should you choose to use your own domain, create a CNAME record in your DNS (domain name system) that points to
If you want the domain to use HTTPS, coordinate with the Vidyard Support Team to set up TLS for your sharing page.
- Under URL details, select a Route Type from the dropdown menu.
- If Vidyard Subdomain: enter a unique domain name
- If your own domain: enter the name of the subdomain you created in your DNS
- Enter a fallback URL to redirect visitors should the sharing page no longer exist
- The fallback URL will maintain the protocol of the sharing page domain (e.g. if the page uses HTTPS, the fallback URL will use HTTPS).
- Click Save Changes
Optional: enable search engine indexing
If applicable, toggle Enable search engine indexing to ON.
Search engine indexing indicates to search engine crawlers that you want the content on your sharing page indexed and searchable on services like Google.
Search engine indexing is also important if you want to share videos to social apps like Twitter. Many social apps need to be able to read the metadata on the sharing page in order to properly format and display the video thumbnail, description, and other information on their platform.
