Mediaspace: How do I share a video using a direct link with students or others?

Answer: Due to the security parameters involved in direct linking, sharing a standard direct link is currently available to those with logins to MediaSpace. Using the embed code method to share allows for sharing without logging into Mediaspace. Once all students are assigned StarIDs, we will have the ability to add them to the system with "view only" rights. This will allow for easier sharing in a secure environment. Until this time we have developed a workaround for direct sharing.

Current workaround: To share a video with a direct link. 1. Open the video in Mediaspace. 2. Click on the Publish tab. 3. Select "Publish in Channel" 4. Select the channel called "Open Channel for Direct Link Sharing". This should allow you to share the direct link and make it viewable.
