If you want to make sure that only people with a specific IP address or within an IP address range can view your video, you can use our Allowed IP Addresses feature. Allowed IP Addresses can be enabled for each individual video or account-wide. If you enable this feature, anyone who tries to access your videos from an IP address other than the ones you specify will be blocked.

You can enter individual IP addresses like 216.154.194.27 or an IP address range using CIDR notation such as 172.16.0.0/16

To enable account-wide Allowed IP Addresses:

  • Move your mouse over the person icon in the upper righthand side of the website and click "Account Settings".
  • Click on the "Video Settings" tab.

Video Settings

  • Scroll down until you see the "Allowed IP Addresses" box and simply add in a list of IP addresses or IP address ranges separated by commas. Be sure to click "Save Playback Settings" when you are finished.

Account Wide Allowed IP

To enable Allowed IP Addresses on a specific video:

  • First navigate to the video you wish to enable allowed IP addresses for, then scroll down and click Additional Video Settings. Select the "IP Addresses" button.

Set IP Addresses

  • Add in a list of IP addresses or IP address ranges separated by commas, making sure to click "Save Addresses" when you are finished.
