    Question about ownership rights

    Keriann · 1 · Last reply by Jose Proenca

    Hello, I am just wondering about the legality of using other people's videos on this site. It is my understanding that some YouTube-ers receive ad revenue from their videos being in YouTube. If we pull their videos out of YouTube and away from the ads, aren't they technically losing money? Do I need to get permission from video authors to create a safeshare link for their video? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

    Subtitles

    Hannah LearnPad · 1 · Last reply by Diogo Alves

    Is there a way to turn off the subtitles/closed captioning on Safeshare videos? I assume they are automatically generated and although this could be a great feature for deaf viewers, I find that the captions are often inaccurate and cause confusion.

    Vimeo error received-not supported URL

    Tara Wilhelm · 1 · Last reply by Jose Proenca

    I tried doing a vimeo link because your main website page mentions Vimeo, but I received an error message that vimeo player is not a supported URL yet.  Vimeo is blocked by our district, but a math activity that a math coach wants to use has vimeo videos.  When will we be able to make a safe link with this URL?

    No sound with my videos

    christin · 2 · Last reply by Diogo Alves

    I use this site daily to create links for my students. In the last 24 hours there is no audio attached to my safe shares. Before I click submit there is sound from the original video, but once it is sumbitted and I click play there is no audio.

    https://safeshare.tv/x/ss580368546eb6b#v  here is an example of my soundless safe share.

    Video showing private now?

    We are now required to train (informally) students in middle school hands only CPR.  We were given the link to a video that we used last year, but it is now showing private.  Any idea why?

    It works fine on my desktop and my iphone but on the mini ipad it just shows a black screen and down below it says "Loop this video" and then it shows the url, BBCode and HTML  but above that it is all black. Any idea what can be happening? Thanks.

    School tablet problems

    Reagan · 1 · Last reply by Diogo Alves

    So, I've been using safeshare on my school tablet for some time now, but just today it stopped working. When I first heard about it from other students, I tried it, but it would never work. The same "blocked by school district page would pop up in the video box as did when I clicked the link directly to YouTube. But then one day I saw my friend using it, and I asked how. He said he just clicked the private button-however later when I accidentally forgot to click that button, it still worked fine, so that probably wasn't all that

    video access through web filters

    Aaron Wiley · 6 · Last reply by Diogo Alves

    Hi,

    I am tech director for the school district. I am working with our elementary school teachers to try and get them up and going on SafeShare using QR codes. While YouTube is open for teachers, it is blocked for students along with Google Videos and other streaming media. I have an exemption in the filter so that your site is not blocked, but the videos still report as blocked. We use a Palo Alto user based filtering solution. Any ideas on how to get this to work without opening streaming videos for everyone to suck up all our bandwidth?

    Captioning/Subtitles

    Roman · 5 · Last reply by Diogo Alves

    Is there a way to include captions? Captions build literacy and improve the understanding of new vocabulary in addition to making the videos accessible to Deaf and Hard of Hearing students. However, even videos with captions are not copying the captions over.

    YouTube

    Mary Fielder · 1 · Last reply by Jose Proenca

    Why do I get a message that says my YOUTUBE video will not create a SafeShare link? These are my recorded videos that are Unlisted. If I send the YouTube link to my students they can view it, along with all of the other stuff along the sides of the YouTube channel.

    does a view on a safeshare view counts towards the video's view totals on YouTube?

    Elijah Grajkowski · 3 · Last reply by Diogo Alves

    Hi,

    Thanks to my school's technology coach, I always convert any YouTube videos to a Safeshare video before showing it to or sharing it with my students.  My bookmarks tab is all Safeshare videos grabbed from YouTube!

    When we view a Safeshare video in this way during class, does it count towards the video's view total on YouTube?

    Also, if the person who posted the YouTube video takes it down, will the Safeshare link of it still play it?

    Thanks,

    Eli
