Hi there,

I'm currently testing the free version of Screencast.com. I wondered, if there is the possibility to restrict the embeding and displaying of the video only to a specific domain within the Free or Pro Version?

Thank you in advance.

Hello Paul,

It really depends where you share your final product. If you wish to publish straight video with no interaction I would suggest publishing to MP4 only and then upload to Vimeo. They have presets for specific URLs. I do believe some account types of YouTube do the same thing. 

If using interactions or menu you should host to Screencast.com which you can then share by URL, Embed it to an HTML code or email a link.

I hope this helps.

You can embed the Screen cast hosted video into a CUSTOM BUILT web page. If you're using a CMS like Wordpress or Drupal, you may have to use YouTube or Vimeo for video hosting.

For custom built web pages try this: Log into your Screencast account, go to your video and hit play - then stop the video. Right click on the video and and select "open video in new tab" or just copy the address to a text file.

You'll see something like this:

content.screencast.com/users/Pat_Sheehan/folders/laxemedia2015/media/3a9cde6c-816f-4e41-9442-8f68d3a1b310/salk.mp4">

That is the video address for the web page. Copy the address into a browser address bar to view your video and to verify the address is correct. 


Insert into your web page the text you see below.





<div class="fluid header">


<video title="" poster="" controls autoplay loop >


  <source src=" YOUR VIDEO ADDRESS GOES HERE ">


</video>
   
        
</div>







NOTE: You can also use the free version of Drop Box for embedding video. Works like a charm and the free version gives you more space for videos and handles larger videos nicely.

Hi Paul,

Sorry, but Screencast.com doesn't offer any kind of embedding restrictions at this time.

Hey thanks to all of you for your answers. :-)
I'm currently using Vimeo (thanks nevertheless for mentioning it) to limit the access of videos only to specific domains. But with the intergrated quiz this procedure is no longer possible. I might try a different provider than Dropbox, which might allow domain specific access to files and then make access via a custom build code snippet. Hope this works.
