We understand that some people have their work submitted to other contests and film festivals and they require privacy. We have you covered with this at The Rookies.
When you embed a Vimeo video, there is a Password input field available to enter your private password.
- If you do not see the video password field, it means you are creating a project for your portfolio and not an entry for a contest.
- Video passwords are only supported with Vimeo videos. YouTube does not support the sharing of passwords with their API.
When you input a password, two things happen:
- your entry displays a password required video to the public. They will not have this code, so they can't watch it. However, when you ever remove this privacy option, everyone will see the video.
- the judges will have access to see the password and use it to watch your video.
Tip: Even though you can't share the video, make sure to include any teaser videos or images that will help get the community excited about your project.
