ViePure also lets you customize a URL. This enables you to come up with memorable URLs of your favorite YouTube videos. Here is how you can make a custom URL:
- The custom URL should first and foremost be alphanumeric, i.e. it can contain both letters and numerals. There should be no special symbols or characters in between.
- It is also worth noting that the number of characters should not exceed 11. YouTube has a rule that limits all characters to that number.
- The only reason that your custom URL may get rejected by YouTube is when someone else has already used that URL. You need to have a unique URL for the videos.
Advantages Of Customization
- This makes the video easily accessible and easy to find and share with others.
- When you want to show a select part in the video, ViewPure comes in very handy. It enables you to set the starting time as well as the end time of the clip. Thus, each time you add or load the custom URL, the video automatically plays or stops where you wish it to. Now, isn’t that like awesome?
Safety And Legality Of ViewPure
- ViewPure is not a service that will allow you to watch YouTube videos in an environment that have blocked access to YouTube thus making it legal and friendly to use.
- ViewPure also does not allow you to download YouTube videos simply because downloading YouTube videos is a violation of YouTube terms and service. Again, it is a legal service to use.
- It also allows you to have password protection that will enable you to come up with a link that’s accessible but also protected by a password. As such, anyone visiting the site to view the video will have to create and enter their own customized password.
- The password protection lets you share the videos only with a specific set of people.
To have fun on ViewPure you can even check out the videos being watched by other users on the website. So it pretty much works like YouTube. This makes the site fun to explore and lets you watch many videos without clutters or distractions.
If you like their service and you wish to make sure it keeps running, you can make a donation using your MasterCard, American Express or your Discover card.
ViewPure purifies your video and removes the distractions. But, it is completely legal to use this service. It does not violate any copyright laws. It works primarily by embedding the video to a web page, something which YouTube already allows.
