Share a library

Sharing a library gives another user access to the library’s content. When a user follows your library, they’ll be able to play and download any content it contains from their pod. Share private libraries with friends and family or share public libraries with everyone!

To share a library you own:

  1. Log in to your pod.

  2. Select the upload icon () in the top of the sidebar.

  3. Select Get started under Upload third-party content in a library.

  4. A screen appears showing your upload quota and your libraries.

  5. Select Library Details under the library you want to share.

  6. The Sharing link appears on the library details page. Select Copy to copy the sharing link to your clipboard. A label appears letting you know you’ve copied the link.

  7. Send the link to whomever you want to share the library with.

  1. Log in to your pod.

  2. Select the upload icon () at the top of the screen.

If you have set the library’s privacy level to Nobody except me, you need to approve followers. You receive a notification when a user follows your library. To approve a follow request:

  1. Log in to your pod.

  2. Select the cog icon () or your avatar to expand the user menu.

  3. Select Notifications. The notifications screen opens.

  4. Notifications show the username of the user who wants to follow the library as well as the library name. Select Accept to approve the follow request or Reject to reject the request.
