Video Link Generator

Generate shareable links for any video you upload or create using Descript’s video link generator. In a couple of clicks, you can create unique video links to a share page that includes a built-in media player, searchable transcript, commenting, and more. Best of all: You can update your video at any time while keeping the same video link intact.

How to turn a video into a link you can share anywhere

Step 1

Create or upload your video

In a new project in Descript, you can create a video from scratch by hitting Record to record your camera, mic, or screen, or drag and drop to upload existing video files. You can make any edits you like using the auto-generated transcript or timeline, as well as add animated captions, music, and other effects.

Step 2

Customize your video link

Once you’re done editing, you can generate your shareable video link by clicking Publish and selecting Web link. Customize the access setting based on who you want to see it: Anyone with the link allows anyone to view it without downloading or signing in to anything, Public will make it discoverable by search engines as well, and Project access required means only people invited to your Descript project can view it. You can also choose whether to include the transcript, allow comments, among other settings.

Step 3

Generate & share your video link

Click the Publish button to publish your share page and generate your video link. From there, you can click Copy link to grab your link, or Open share page to pop open the web player to view your video. You can make updates at any time in Descript and republish to update your video link.

How can I share a video as a link for free?

It’s free to share your video link with Descript’s video link maker. Simply click the Publish button once you’re done editing to generate a web link to a share page others can view without downloading or signing in.

Can I limit who can access my video link with Descript?

You can customize the privacy settings for each video link you create. This means you have full control over who can view the video, download the content, and make comments.

How do I embed a Descript video link?

Every video link comes with an embed code that lets you embed your video to any website, blog post, Notion page, or anywhere you can add HTML. From compelling videos on your homepage to product walkthrough videos, Descript’s video link generator makes it easy to leverage the videos you create.

Why should I use Descript to share a video link instead of YouTube, Google Drive, etc.?

YouTube and cloud storage solutions like Google Drive are great for hosting and sharing videos, but Descript offers a video hosting service and video link generation as part of an all-in-one video editor. You can not only upload videos, but create them from scratch to generate shareable links you can edit after the fact without creating a new video link URL.

Do I need to create a new video link if I want to update my video?

Descript’s link generator for videos allows you to update your videos as often as you want, even replace it with a new video, and still maintain the same video link URL. You no longer need to worry about searching for “final-final-version-14” of your video projects to share them with your contacts.
