Whenever you share a video from your library, you control who has access to watch it. You can do this by changing the access settings on a video.
Because playlists contain multiple videos, each with their own access settings, how you change and manage these settings is a little different. In order to change who can watch your playlist, you must change the access settings on the video(s) that comprise the list.
Change the access settings on a playlist
- Select a playlist from your library to open the edit page
- Scroll down to the Access section, then click on the dropdown arrow. Here you can review:
- What settings are being applied to the playlist (e.g. Anyone with a link, anyone with a password, etc.)
- Where the settings are being applied from (specific videos, the folder's default access settings, or both)
- Open the menu (the three dots) next to the setting that you want to change.
- Select an option to navigate directly to the settings for the video or folder (whichever is applying settings to the playlist) and change as needed.
Playlists with multiple access settings
When a playlist adopts more than 1 access setting from videos in the list, a viewer must pass all requirements in order to watch.
For example, if a playlist adopts both an IP restriction and a password, the viewer must satisfy both rules before they are permitted to watch any of the videos in the list:
- a) they must be connected to the permitted IP address
- b) they must also submit a correct password
There are 2 exceptions to this behaviour. The first are playlists that contain multiple videos with their own passwords. In this case, the password(s) on the first video in the playlist take precedence over any other videos' passwords. If a viewer submits a valid password for the first video, they are allowed to watch the entire playlist.
The second exception are playlists that contain a video that has been restricted to a secure platform (for example, videos secured with your company's SSO identity provider). The secure platform requirement takes precedence over all other access settings. In these cases, the viewer only needs to pass the authentication process for the secure platform in order to watch the videos in the playlist.
You can see both of these exceptions reflected under the Access section on the playlist edit page. Any settings not required to access the playlist appear with the label "Not Applied".
