The Spotlightr platform allows for videos to be played with our player but hosted on other platforms like Youtube, Vimeo, etc.  You just need the link from the external platform and then you can copy that link into your Spotlightr video.

Please note that it's very important to understand the benefits and drawbacks of linking a video/hybrid hosting. Please see this article for more information on that.

To link a video, you simply need the URL of the video. Some of the supported formats are:

  • YouTube

  • Vimeo

  • CloudApp

  • GoogleDrive

  • Facebook

  • DropBox

  • Amazon S3

  • pCloud

(More information on specific allowed formats is here)

Just paste your link into the corresponding field and click on VALIDATE button.

After very fast link validation, you just need to name your video and click on Save & Continue.

When you view a list of your videos, a small YouTube icon will indicate that this video is from YouTube.
