When you upload media to your MediaSpace account, you will need to select one of the three file sharing permissions settings. This setting can be changed later, so pick the setting that best applies at the moment:

  • Private: Only you will be able to access the file.
    • Faculty - If you are adding the videos to D2L with the "Insert Stuff" or "Existing Activities" method, you can still use this Private setting.
  • Unlisted: Only those with a link to the file that you provide will be able to access it. Select this option if you want to share your video using a direct link to the video that you might share via email.
