What happens when I add a private video to a public Group?

The privacy settings of a Group will always override the privacy settings for your individual video.

For example, a private video added to a Group will be accessible to anyone who views it through that Group. The same holds true when you add a private video to a public Channel.

What is the difference between a Group and a Channel?

A Group is a mini-community within Vimeo that allows people to interact and share with one another. A Channel is user-curated destination to watch videos.

The main difference between the two is that a Group is intended for users to collaborate, share, and discuss videos with other members, while a Channel is intended as a destination to watch videos. We recommend exploring both features before deciding which is best for you. Explore Channels and Groups.

Why can't I add my videos to a specific Group?

First, make sure you're logged in to your account, and verify that you are indeed a member of the Group.

Next, check the Privacy Settings of your video to make sure you have enabled it to be added to collections like Groups, Channels and Albums. Keep in mind you can add your video to a maximum amount of 10 Groups!

Finally, take into consideration the Privacy Settings for the Group itself. Certain moderators choose not to allow other people to add videos to their Group. Other Groups require that a moderator approve videos before they actually show up on the Group page.

Can I make my Group private?

You sure can, and it's super easy! Just click Settings on your Group page and head to the Membership tab.

If you opt to make your Group private, anyone who's not a member of the Group who navigates to it will see a message stating that this is a Private Group and they do not have permission to view it. This privacy setting will also hide the Group from your profile page.

What happens when I remove a video from a Group and add it back in?

If a video that was previously removed is added back to a Group, the video will return to its original spot in the Group.

For example, if your Group is sorted by Most Recent, the video’s placement will be based on the time it was originally added, not the time you re-added it.
