Linking to Kanopy Videos

Although Kanopy database offers more than one way to embed or share videos in that collection, an efficient method to insure SU students and faculty have access to this subscription content for a specific video title is to carefully add SU's proxy prefix to the shareable URL for that video.  Below is an example, using the case of the recent documentary film about Turkish street cats and their community of caretakers, entitled, Kedi.

  1. Click on the link entitled "Share"
  2. Copy the URL for that video title (in this case - https://syr.kanopy.com/video/kedi)
  3. Manually add SU's proxy prefix to that URL (http://libezproxy.syr.edu/login?url=)
  4. The resulting URL for the title, inclusive of proxy prefix, would then look like this, and should work for on-campus as well as off-campus video access for all current SU NETID holding students, staff or faculty (http://libezproxy.syr.edu/login?url=https://syr.kanopy.com/video/kedi )
