Create folders to organize your videos

With Hippo Video, you can now create multiple folders and tags to organize your videos. All your recorded videos can be saved under different folders and you can also tag them for easy access.


To create a folder and set permissions:

  1. Log-in to  Hippo Video with your existing credentials.

Note: The users can share the videos embedded in a sales page for which they have a minimum of View permission.
  • Set access as Viewer/Editor for the selected users or groups.
  • Select Remove Access option to keep the page private if you prefer. 
Note:  The same user will have access to Viewer and Editor. So, in that case, they will have permissions based on the hierarchy, i.e. Between Viewer and Editor, the Editor has the highest permission.
  • In order to share the folder with others in the organization, check the Share with everyone in the organization box. The Everyone in the Organization option will get listed below the Shared with box. You can select the access accordingly.
  1. Click on Change thumbnail to change the default thumbnail and select your preferred thumbnail from your local drive.
