    I have not been able to insert a video uploaded using videopress to my self hosted blog without the sharing option checked! i don't want to share the video since my blog is private and i don't want the members to share my videos! how can i do that? please help!

    Find the options for Settings > Media
    at ______.wordpress.com/wp-admin/options-media.php

    Here you uncheck "Default share setting" to remove the sharing option.

    But under "Restrict embed playback", add the domain for your selfhosted WordPress to allow embeds on specific websites.

    Hope this is what you were looking for. Good luck!

    do you know by any chance how i can get a VIP account. I tried contacting them many time but without any luck.

    Excellent! And no, sorry - but I kind of though you had to be a Fortune 500 or something to become a VIP.

    Im having this same issue. I cannot see a way to enable embeds, but not allow downloads.

    I do not want people to be able to download my videos, only view them.

    Is there now way to enable enbed without allowing downloads?

    Or does the word "downloads" really not mean the file is downloaded and kept by the viewer?
