Sharing your Biteable Video

There are three primary ways you can share a Biteable video with your audience, and all are as easy as clicking a button after you have finished your video.

  1. Copy link: This allows you to share a link to your video's unique watch page hosted by Biteable. Sharing via this link allows you to publish updates to your video without re-sharing your link. Links also give you access to powerful features like analytics, comments, and call-to-action.

  2. Embed: The embed option provides a code that allows you to put your video into web pages as needed. Embeds can also leverage the same functionality of links (see above).

  3. Download: Download your video as an mp4 file to share or upload wherever you please. Nearly all information-sharing and social media platforms allow you to upload video files. Downloaded videos do not require integrations, so can often be the simplest way to use Biteable with certain applications. Downloading is only available in our paid plans.
