Use the video links generated in the share buttons to create a video link. If your institution uses a proxy server for authentication, use the Share external URL link.

For example, this link will take the user directly to the video page of the program:

http://edutv.informit.com.au/watch-screen.php?videoID=243898.

In an IP authenticated site, the authorised user will have immediate access. If the user is off site then they will need to login before they can access the video.

https://login.ezproxy.lib.rmit.edu.au/login?url=http://edutv2.switchmedia.asia/watch-screen.php?videoID=817798.

The interface allows the user to share video links via email, Facebook and Twitter.
