Problem with Hide Buttons feature

The Hide All Buttons feature is not seeming to work.  When the safe share is generated and you play the video there is a direct link back to youtube below the video?  I loved using this tool to keep my students from getting to youtube so easily :-(  Can this be fixed? Thank you!

Thank you so much!  That worked beautifully :-)

That's just perfect :-)

Please spread the word to other teachers that use SafeShare!

I just noticed that your response before added that this is just temporary? Did you mean the extra steps are temporary?  Thank you,

Yes, the extra steps are temporary as we're planning to introduce some quite neat features very soon (which will automatically include this fix) :-) 

Would you like a sneak peek?

Awesome! I would love a sneak peak!


So, this is something that we've been working on for quite a while. It is still a work in progress so I'm unable to show you the whole thing, but it'll be a major improvement over current SafeShare, especially when it comes to saving previously created SafeViews and sharing them.

Thoughts? :-)

It looks great!! So there would be a login required in order to access your saved links?  Would this still be free to educators? I hope so!  Thank you so much for sharing!

Hi Lisa,

We are very sorry, but unfortunately we had to change a few things due to YouTube.

However there's an easy fix for this (which unfortunately has to be done manually). If you append "?clean=1" to the end of a SafeShare.TV URL, it will work.

For example:




What it does is that it replaces the YouTube player by a clean one (no ads, no related videos, no YouTube logo, just the video).

Can you please give that a try in one of your SafeViews and let me know?


Best Regards,
