One of the easiest ways to publish your content is to share simple links with your audience. This is helpful for getting feedback on a video, distributing a one-off internal webcast and other situations where you don't want to build a site around your media asset.

Share a playback link

The playback link is a simple link hosted on publish.viostream.com that just contains a Player which loads a media asset.

  1. From the media library, locate the asset you wish to share and click on its title.
  2. Click the Distribution tab.
  3. Click the playback link to view the page or press copy link to copy the link to your clipboard.

Share a download link

If your audience needs to download a video (e.g. for viewing whilst travelling), you can send them a simple download link.

  1. From the media library, locate the asset you wish to download and click on its title.
  2. Click the Distribution tab.
  3. Click the download link to download the asset or press copy link to copy the download link to your clipboard.
