Sharing films and playlists

Below every video on the Kanopy website, you will see a button which says "Share/Embed." Clicking on this button will display three options for sharing and embedding films:

  1. The direct link to the film that you can send as a URL to anyone associated with your university/library
  2. Social media options to share via Facebook, Twitter, etc.
  3. The embed link which you can copy and paste into a website or course management system post so that the film appears and can be watched there (as opposed to providing a link to open up a separate webpage). If you would like to learn more about how to embed films, you can see how to here.

All sharing and embedding options are also available below any clip or playlist you create as well.

If you are linking to a playlist and would like to begin at a specific clip, you can force the video to start at this clip by adding "&pos=#" at the end of the sharing link. Replace the # with the position number of the clip within the playlist. For example, if you want the video to begin at the second clip, the URL in the HTML code will look similar to this: ""
