Video recipient page
When you share a video set to "Unlisted" or "Private" (which includes team members) those recipients will see a cleaner version of the video page. The video recipient page view places more of the focus on your video and less on external distractions such as links to other parts of the website and video recommendations.
If you’re a Free, Basic, or Plus user and you’ve set a team/company logo for your account, your viewer will be able to see it in the upper left corner of the page, along with the comments panel to the right of the player. If you are a Pro, Business, Premium, Starter, Standard, Advanced, or Enterprise user, your viewers will also be able to link out to your Review Page.
If you have any difficulties using the Video Settings page, please contact Support. Please provide a description of what you were trying to change as well as any relevant error messages and/or screenshots to help best troubleshoot your issue.
