Dailymotion introduces Repost, an innovative way to share the videos you love


New York, October 22nd, 2015 – Dailymotion, one of the biggest aggregation and distribution video platforms in the world, introduces Repost, a brand new tool which allows Dailymotion users to highlight excerpts of their favorite videos and repost them on their channel and social media accounts.

From customizing or even translating the video title into another language, to trimming the video down to its best bit, all users can benefit from Dailymotion’s cutting-edge technology to share the internet’s best videos.

For video creators, it’s a win-win situation – not only do more people see their videos, with views being credited to both the original uploader and the reposter, the tool also protects creators from freebooting, by ensuring that they earn all of the ad revenue generated from reposts. The repost feature can also be disabled at any time should users wish to keep their videos from being reposted.

Dailymotion is the first and only video platform in the world to offer this tool to its users.

How do I create a repost?

  1. Navigate to the page of the video you would like to repost and click on the Repost button located beneath the player
  2. Customize your repost’s title using the text field
  3. Use the trimming tool to choose the section you’d like to repost. You can also repost an entire video.
  4. Click the Repost button to share the video on your channel and social networks!
