Hi @Lasse72, thanks for checking in with us. 

 

Any file you send can be previewing on the website, without necessarily having to download it. 

 

Just to make sure though, do you want to turn off the option to download the file?

 

Also, how long is the video? 

 

Let me know whenever you get the chance, cheers!

You can share a link to the video by following these steps

 

Anyone you send it to can preview it on the web and won't need an account. 

 

Let me know if this helps, thanks!
