You can share your files on UniTube with everyone (public) only with certain people who have been sent a link (unlisted), or by giving specific people permission to access the file (private).

To set a file as private:

  1. Go to My Media (in the top right of your screen).
  2. Click on the title of the file you want to make private.
  3. In the next screen, select the Private radio button, and click on the Share link beside it.
  4. Add the usernames of the people you want to have access to the file. You will need to send these people the link that was created when you first uploaded the file so that they can access it.

Please note that UniTube will not be supported beyond mid-2018. While you can continue to use UniTube until then, you may wish to consider using another media hosting service, such as:

If you need assistance selecting an alternative media host, please contact the IT Service Desk by calling 64 3 479 8888 or 0800 479 888 or email
