Frequently Asked Questions

How is this service difference from video embed options or emailing the video link?

While sending an email, you still need to send the YouTube or Vimeo link. Embedded video on sites still shows related videos and extra distracting functionalities. Our service provides a unique combination of the ability to view the video with minimum distraction as well as the ability to crop distracting scenes within the video !

But YouTube and Vimeo provides offensive video filtering already?

Yes. However it does not work well. At the same time, there are tons of links and buttons around the video player !

Why not leave the option open to the video recipients?

Everyone can. However, a lot of people need help with "control tools" more than others. This service is voluntary and free of charge which allows people to choose for themselves.

Still, everyone can go directly to the original video?

Yes, you are free to do so. However, there are a lot of people - like us - that don't want to introduce more distractions and/or offensive material unnecessarily to others.

How is this service useful if it does not stop children from visiting YouTube or Vimeo?

Children still need to be supervised while surfing the Internet. This service is a step forward to help in many of the situations mentioned above.

Do SafeShare links expire?

No. They never expire.

Is there a way to embed the cropped video rather than rely on a link?


Sometimes the links never open up for me. Why is that?

If this is always the case, there is a big chance that you are using an incompatible browser. SafeShare.TV is compatible with most modern browsers. Try with another browser or upgrade to the latest version of your current browser.

Will this site still work in a school where YouTube or Vimeo is blocked?

The answer is heavily depending on how your school configured their proxy filtering.

Is it legal to use SafeShare.TV?

Absolutely. SafeShare.TV only uses authorized YouTube developer tools and fully in compliance with YouTube and Vimeo TOS.
