Frequently asked questions
If I transfer a player, does it affect any locations where it is embedded?
No. The transferred player maintains the same UUID (unique identifier) and will remain active in any locations where it is embedded.
Do the videos within a player also transfer to the new group?
When you transfer a player, the source files for the videos are duplicated to the library in the recipient group. This means that you can continue to create new players from those videos in both the original and recipient groups.
