Basically everybody is able and allowed to see your uploaded files, unless the group they belong to is set as “private”. (How to set as private? Read on...)
Of course. You can either set a single video, audio, or document file as private, or a whole group.
During the uploading process, a field will appear for the descriptions of your media. You will find a button where you can choose between “published” or “private.”
If you want to set as private a file which is already uploaded: “Manage my video/audio/document” at “My Desk” will link you to your media, with an “edit” button underneath. This will enable you to change the status.
Set the whole group as private: At “My Groups” click on the desired group. Beneath the group description you will find the respective button.
You may set up a channel (called a Stage) for yourself, your training program, institution, and/or working group. A stage is the proper platform to present you and your scientific findings through video, audio, and document files. Here you can also discuss all media contributions. A Stage is always public.
After creating a Stage, you may also set up "Groups." Groups are common platforms of different members to discuss topics and share features among similarly interested academics. The group concept follows the idea of a closer community. Unlike Stages, Groups may be set as "private" in the menu "groups managed by me." This means that such private groups are closed and cannot be found and accessed by non-group members. You can share videos and documents in Groups. To do so you need to upload such features to your Stage first and add them to your Group afterwards. As Group administrator you may also exclude other members from your Group.
Favorites are bookmarked media files. By adding a video, audio, or document file to your favorites, you can bookmark it in case you would like to watch it several times without having to search for it anew.
Yes. At “Groups managed by me,” click on the desired group. Beneath the group description you will find the provided button to make it hidden or private.
There is no limit.
Use the “bookmark” button beneath the video player, after selecting the desired video. Then choose a service from the list where you want to post and share the video.
Our editorial team is in charge of featuring. Mostly, files will be featured which arouse great interest, high ratings and top quality. We would like to invite you to suggest files which you think are worth featuring.
Of course. After having selected the desired video, click on the “bookmark” button beneath the video player. Click on “Email” and type in the desired contact address.
You can either first go to the stage of the member you want to send a message to, and use the “send a message” button or just click in the header menu on “My message” to “compose message”.
You can search for members, stages, profiles at “Stages” in the header menu.
Not yet, but we are still working on this feature.
At “My Groups” click on the desired group. Beneath the group description you will find the respective button.
By rating a media file, users can give their opinion whether the content is worth seeing.
Simply create a new group, set it as “private”, add the media files to it and invite the members that you want to gain access to your content.

Yes. At “upload video” you’ll find a button beneath the header menu where you can start transferring your videos.
Choose the desired media file. Next to the media player you’ll find the “embed” code which you just copy into the .html or CSS box on your blog or your webpage.
