Open Exchange

Open Exchange Overview

WatchGameFilm.com 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.  At the same time, Open Exchange allows a coach to give another coach access to upload their film to his or her team so that they can properly receive game film from the coach who is outside of WatchGameFilm.com. 

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.




Your opponent will then be able to use the link you provided to access the download page and save the film to their device. They will not have access to your team film or any other part of the system.

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.  The email will include film information, the film download link as well as your comments about the film and our instructions on that the recipient needs to do in order to access the film.  You will be cc'd on this email and your transaction will be logged in our Exchange Log as well as User Activity Report.
