Looking to recommend using Screencast at work. I've used it for years- posting and distributing sports videos to team families. After several games were posted, I heard back that if they had the link to one game, they just needed to open the link and in the player window, there are front and back arrows that allow them to look at other videos kept in the same folder at Screencast. Question... how can I isolate videos/links so if I send a link to a confidential video to one person, they can't use it to navigate to other videos?

The navigation arrows underneath your media should only appear when the folder you have your content in is set to the 'Public' privacy setting. If you change the folder to 'Hidden' then users will not see that navigation bar and will be unable to see other content you have in that folder. When a folder is Hidden the content within it must be accessed with the direct link, and users will not be able to see the folder on your library page.
