Q: How is this service difference from YouTube embed options or emailing YouTube link?
A: While sending an email, you still need to send the YouTube link. Embedded YouTube 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 !
Q: But YouTube provides offensive video filtering already?
A: Yes. However it does not work well. At the same time, there are approximately 120 links and buttons around the video player !
Q: Why not leave the option open to the video recipients?
A: 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.
Q: Still, everyone can go directly to YouTube?
A: 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.
Q: How is this service useful if it does not stop children from visiting YouTube?
A: 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.
Q: Do SafeShare links expire?
A: No. They never expire.
Q: Is there a way to embed the cropped video rather than rely on a link?
Q: Sometimes the links never open up for me. Why is that?
A: 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.
Q: Will this site still work in a school where YouTube is blocked?
A: The answer is heavily depending on how your school configured their proxy filtering.
Q: Is it legal to use SafeShare.TV ?
A: Absolutely. SafeShare.TV only uses authorized YouTube developer tools and fully in compliance with YouTube TOS.
