How To Share Your VidDay Video Gift

Updated: Apr 28



You created a beautiful video as a gift. It's published and you received the final video. Congrats!


Now for the exciting part!


You get the pleasure of surprising the recipient with their video gift. But before you do that, here are a few things you should know about sharing the final VidDay video.


Watching The Final Video


The event page that you created and used to gather videos and photos is where the final video is hosted. From there, you can watch, manage, and share the video with the recipient and others.


Please be sure that you're logged in to your VidDay account to see the final video, or else the event page will look like it's closed for submissions. To make the video available for others to see, you'll need to change the privacy setting.


Privacy Setting


You have full control of the privacy of the VidDay video you created. Look for the privacy toggle below the video. This toggle controls whether the video is private or public. When the video is set as private, only you (the one who created the video) will be able to watch the video. Share the "Private Link" if you want to keep the video private and only share the video with the recipient. The private link is a secondary link that no one else knows about, that can access a private webpage to view the final video. This webpage can only be directly accessed with the private link. When the video is set as public, all those who have the event page link—the same link that they used to submit their videos and photos—will be able to watch the video. Your video can only be directly accessed using the public link. It's not uploaded to YouTube without your permission, and it can't be found through search engines.


Sharing the Final Video With the Recipient

There are many ways to share the final video online. At the core, it's all about sharing the event page link. You can share the link in any way that works best for you. To make things easier, you can hit the icons to quickly share the link through email, text message, Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, and more.


Remember, the video needs to be set to public for others to see the video. And if you share on Facebook, tag the contributors who helped you make the video.



Notifying Contributors


With the click of a button, you can notify the contributors who submitted their email address along with their submission. Hit the 'Notify Contributors' button, and VidDay will send them an email to let them know that the final video is ready to watch.


We bet that they're super excited to see the final video too!

You can also simply share the event page with other people. Whoever has the direct link of the event page, will be able to view the final video (so long as it's set to public).


Downloading the Final Video


You can download the final video and keep it as a beautiful souvenir.


Or, if you want to show the final video on a television that isn't connected to the internet, you can download the video and put it on a USB drive to plug into the television. Please note that downloading is only available on desktop computers and laptops. For the most part, phones and tablets block the ability to download large files from internet browsers.


Adding or Removing Media From the Final Video


If you need to make edits to the finalized video, like adding or removing media, you'll need to hit the 'Reopen Event Page' button found at the very bottom of the page. By reopening the event page, the final video will disappear, and the page will revert back to its original view with the individual videos and photos. From there, you can add, remove, and arrange media again. When you're done making edits, hit the 'Publish' button to republish the video. Please note that there is a 30% republishing fee of the base cost. For example, a $12 video will cost $3.60 to republish.
