Privacy and security
You may mark videos as either "private" or "public." You may change your videos' privacy settings on both a global and individual video basis.
Although you've set a global default, you can still change the security settings of individual videos on a one by one basis. If you're happy keeping the majority of your videos private, for example, but want to make one video public, you can do so by clicking the Manage button next to that video, then clicking on the Settings link above the top right corner of the video player. Under the "Security" tab, you can set the video to public, thus overriding your global security settings.
Setting a video to private means there will be no public viewing page for the video on vzaar.com but the underlying links to the video, player, etc. also need to be secured.
vzaar offers three levels of security for your underlying links. These can be found in your global settings. You can leave them unsecured, which will allow people to embed them anywhere. The second option is Domain Control - this will block the video from playing on other sites and in doing so protect your content.
If somebody inspects the source of your pages and tries to view or share the video link, we'll show a DCP error rather than show your video.
You can also fine-tune the setting by enabling or disabling sub-domains:
The third (and most secure) option is Signed Keys. This involves some setup on your own site and you must have access to a server-side language with your hosting. You can find out more about that and view code samples on this page.
Should you require more domain control URLs, but do not wish to upgrade your subscription, you can purchase additional slots by heading to your add-ons page.
If you need multiple domain control URLs, please contact us to discuss the options available to you as you may save money by upgrading your subscription.
