Enable Public Downloading

In Warpwire, downloading is disabled by default. Users have the option to enable public downloading on a per-user basis, allowing the user to share media with their institution or the public.

Please note: We recommend enabling this option on a case-by-case basis, and only if you want users you may not know to be able to download your media.

To enable this feature, first go to the desired Media Library or Media Asset.

Click on the Media Library or the three-dots button next to the asset. Then, click Share.
