How to Enable Social Sharing Options Within the Player

The SproutVideo player is equipped with built-in social sharing tools to allow your viewers to easily share your videos with their fans and followers.

To enable social sharing on a single video:

  1. Select the video from the ‘Videos’ page.
  2. Scroll down and click ‘Additional Video Settings.’
  3. Check the box for ‘Social sharing in player’ then click ‘Save Changes.’
