How to create stable links for online journals, e-books, and streaming media

Create Stable Links for Streaming Media

To comply with copyright and meet licensing agreements, you must use the appropriate stable link to share streaming media. Do not embed a video directly into D2L or other course-related materials.  Many platforms do not allow embedded videos to play successfully within learning management systems such as D2L.

The process of creating stable links can vary between streaming media platforms. Note that stable links may not be available for every online library resource.
