Registration: You can quickly sign up for free with a Google account on the registration page.
Google Accounts: To make our site secure, we use Google Sign-in for authentication. This allows us to verify a user without ever having access to their password. When a user logs in, the data is sent directly to Google. Hive Video has no access to this data.
YouTube Account Access: There are features under development (including the ability to create a Highlight Reel from a YouTube playlist) that require read-only access to your YouTube account. Hive Video uses Google accounts for registration so we don't have to store your password or personal information. You may receive an email from Google acknowledging you've given Hive Video access.
Creating a Reel: First register and sign in. Once you login, you'll be directed to the Reels page. Click "Add Reel" and you'll be directed to the Editor where you can name your reel and start adding highlights.
Editing a Reel Name: From the Reels page, click the Edit button for the Reel and you'll be directed to the Editor. To edit or change the Reel name, click the Reel Settings button and change the name on the Reel Settings page.
YouTube video won't play: YouTube video uploads can be set to not play through other apps (inc. Hive Video)--this is the choice of the uploader.
