Share your Fetlife videos with friends for free!
This is a friends only video I uploaded on Fetlife.
Not only does Fetlife normally require you to log in to view it (and to be a paid member), but you must be my friend.
Since I have no friends on Fetlife, it should therefore be theoretically unviewable by anybody on Fetlife but myself, correct? So none of those paying members are getting the benefit of this super awesome really special video, correct?
So far so good. I like that. I like that a lot. Especially since I can show this super awesome really special video to all my peeps (and hide it from the creeps!) without anybody having to purchase a goddamn thing (even if I delete it[!], because I hear these links stay up indeterminately even after the user deletes their content and/or profile).
Where did I get this magical forever link? Basically, I just opened up the page’s source* and did a find search (CTRL+ F) for “videocdn”.
The one that comes up with “encoded.mp4” at the end is the regular video file for browsers/download. I think the one below it is for mobile viewing, like if you want to send it to your friend’s phone.
Let’s find out and see!
Does this open on mobile phones?
Yep, sure as fuck does. Tested it from Twitter.
To find a page’s source is a little bit different in each browser. You can look under View or Tools or even right click on the page for the mouse menu. It will be called something like Source, View Source or Page Info.
For more info on how to do this in Firefox, see my previous post about how to do this for your pictures. (On a side note, user IDs don’t appear to be part of the structure for video links like they are for photos; meaning that people who know the link structure won’t automatically be able to trace the video back to your profile.)
Why would you want to be able to send content to your friends without them having to log into or pay Fetlife? Because lots of us have friends who may be kinky but don’t wanna have anything to do with that site. Or are broke. Or both.
So for them, a video of the coolest faucet ever. Enjoy.
