The Vidyard for Facebook integration makes it easy for you to share videos to your Pages on Facebook.
Once you have successfully integrated Vidyard with a Facebook account, users may push videos to any page on which the connected account has been designated as an administrator or editor.
- Your account must have the Facebook Integration feature enabled
- You must connect Vidyard to a Facebook account
- Belong to a role with the Push to Facebook permission enabled
Videos must meet the following requirements in order to be pushed to Facebook through the integration:
- Videos cannot exceed 10GB in size
- Videos cannot exceed 4 hours in length
Push a video to Facebook
- From the Vidyard dashboard, select Content > Videos (all of your uploaded videos are available here)
- Hover over the video that you want to share, then click Settings
- Select the Advanced dropdown menu, then click Push to Facebook.
- Make any necessary changes to the video name and description before pushing to Facebook
- Configure how and when to publish your video to Facebook:
- Select the Facebook account and page to which you want to share the video.
- Allow embedding: toggle ON to allow viewers access to the video's embed code.
- Suppress feed and timeline story: toggle ON to prevent the video from appearing on subscriber's timelines. The video will only appear in the Videos repository on your Facebook page for future use.
- Copy description: toggle ON to push video metadata (name and description) along with the video.
- Secret: toggle ON to make the video invisible and unsearchable on Facebook, but still able to be shared with permalink and embed codes.
- Schedule: determine when the video should be shared (immediately or at a later time and date)
- Click Push to Facebook
A confirmation message will be appear once the video has successfully been shared. This message will provide a link to the video on Facebook.
Keep in mind: there may be a slight delay before the video is available. Facebook will require a moment to encode the video for use in their native player. Once the encoding has completed, you may further edit the video in Facebook, including subtitles and captions, labels, and privacy.
