We get asked a lot about privately embedding YouTube and Vimeo videos on a website - how to make sure that the video can only be viewed where it's been embedded and nowhere else.

You may want to do this if you are going to have a video section on your website for educational or training courses, internal company videos, or other premium video content.

Videos uploaded to YouTube or Vimeo (which are the best tools for streaming content) are usually public and anyone can view them. So in this video, we demonstrate how to make your videos private, and only viewable on your website.

It is good to keep in mind that if you want your videos to be found and be listed in Google, then it's best to upload these videos to YouTube. YouTube is the second largest search engine, and because it is owned by Google, YouTube videos are indexed more in Google than Vimeo videos.

However, if you are going to be uploading your videos only to then be embedded on your website, Vimeo would be the better option because it has a lot more features for managing your videos and privacy settings.
