By default, your videos are accessible and playable anywhere in the world, thanks to SproutVideo’s speedy global CDN. With geo whitelisting, you can designate the specific countries or regions where your videos can be played. Once enabled, your videos will not load or play in any countries or regions that are not included in your whitelist. If this option is left blank, playback will be available anywhere in the world.
