Share Media Publicly with a Password

If you want to share a media file with the public but would like the viewer to input a password to view the video, then follow the steps below.


Viewers that are logged into their MyVideoSpot account will be able to view the media item without a password if their account has the required viewing permissions.

Step 1: Click on the Edit Attributes icon (pencil) of the media you want to share.

Step 2: Scroll down to open up the Media Sharing and Associations section and select Require Password for Public Viewing, input a password, and then click Update at the bottom of the page.
Note: MyVideoSpot administrators do not have access to this password, but you can change the password if you forget.

Step 3: Click the Share icon and share the media item outside of MyVideoSpot with a URL or embed code.

When your viewers want to view this video, they will get the message “Enter a Password to View this item” before they can view the media item.
