You only need to take two quick steps to create a beautiful video website hosted entirely by SproutVideo, with no third party providers or technical knowledge required. You can be up and running in a matter of minutes!

Please note that your videos will appear on your video site according to their privacy settings. They need to be Public, Password Protected, or Login Protected to appear on your site. Private videos do not appear on your video site.

To get your video site setup, you need to complete the following two steps:

1) Navigate to the Site drop down menu at the top of the page, and select Theme Design. There, you will find the themes available for the video sites, as well as all other customization options. Please select a theme, and customize it.

Navigate to the theme design page to publish your video site

2) When you're done customizing your site, click Publish Changes in the top righthand corner of your screen, and your new video site will be live!

Publish Video Site

If you want to change any of your video site settings, including its URL, you can do so by hovering your mouse over "Site," and selecting "Settings" from the drop down menu.

To view your video site, navigate to the URL you selected during the signup process. It will be something like "https://mysite.vids.io". Or, use the Site drop down menu to select "Go to Site" to open a new window or tab containing your site.

If you need help with any of these steps, contact our support team.
