WatchGameFilm provides a simple and open way of exchanging film with opponents who may be using a different film management system such as Hudl. We see many teams use Open Exchange when they get to the playoffs and are trading film with teams they normally do not know. Open Exchange allows a coach to give another coach access to a film without requiring that coach to log on or use WatchGameFilm.
With Open Exchange you are in control and have the power to decide how you want to exchange film. Since Open Exchange is 2 separate parts (Send and Receive), you may want to first receive their film before you send them your film. Regardless of how you want the trade to go down, please follow the instructions below when you want to send or receive a film from another person who is NOT using WatchGameFilm.
Please contact us if you need assistance in completing an Open Exchange with another coach outside of WatchGameFilm.
Receive Film from Opponent
- Exchange with Hudl Teams
The most common film system to trade film with is Hudl. Your trading partner should send you an email containing a download link of their Hudl film. Use that link to transfer their film directly into your WatchGameFilm team. If your trade partner does not know how to send you a link to their film, more information regarding how to create a Hudl link can be found here: https://www.hudl.com/support/hudl/v3/review-and-share-video/share-video/share-video-with-a-non-hudl-team
- Exchange with Anyone in the Cloud
We also support links to video saved on cloud services such as Google Drive or Microsoft OneDrive. If this is the case with your trade partner, have them provide you with the share url so that you can transfer their film directly into your WatchGameFilm team.
Send Film using Open Exchange
The Open Exchange Send method allows you to select a film and then email it to a recipient outside of WatchGameFilm. This email includes film information, the film download link as well as your comments about the film and our instructions that the recipient needs in order to access the film. You will be cc'd on this email and your transaction will be logged in Exchange History as well as User History.
Follow these instructions to give your trading partner access to a specific film without giving them access to your team:
