Media share

Media share is an easy to use and secure way to share any media stored in Content Hub via a publicly accessible URL.

Using Media share has the following advantages:

  • Assets ingested into Content Hub can be shared with people who don't have access. This reduces the workload required to download assets from Content Hub and upload them to a public hosting site to share with others

  • Media share puts you in control. When sharing a group of assets you can remove the ability to download the assets after a certain amount of days: between 1 and 31 days. For example, during a 2 day training course the assets will be available to view and automatically expire afterwards.

To make use of media share functionality, you must have the media share app installed on your account. Please contact your Customer Success Manager to request access to the feature.

Creating a media share

To create a media share, select the assets you want to share and drag them to a clear workspace. In this example we want to share a mixture of videos and images.

Choose the assets you want to share and drag them into a clear workspace

Click the "Actions" icon at the top right of the workspace window and choose "Media share".

Choose media share from the workspace actions to create a new share or view shares you previously set up

In the sharing screen enter a name for the assets the company name you want to use. You can also specify the number of days that you want the share to be available for, with a default of 7 days.

When you've set up the details for your share, click the "Generate URL" button to create a URL to give to the people we want to share the assets with.

Enter a name, company and the duration in days for which the share should be available

A URL is generated which you can use to share the assets and will be active for the duration you chose.

Give the generated URL to those that you want to share the assets with

When the recipient clicks the generated URL a window is displayed listing the assets that you added to the share. One or more assets can be selected and downloaded.
