Open Your Account Dashboard
Most of the important Wistia settings for your Account are housed in the Account Dashboard. Many of the tips below require you to open the Account Dashboard as well.
First, you will need to be logged in as the Account Owner. Find the Account drop-down menu in the upper-right hand corner of your account. Next, select the Account Dashboard option.
Uploading Your Logo
From the Account Dashboard, choose. The Upload Your Logo dialog will guide you through the process of uploading and displaying your company logo in your Wistia account.
Filtering Out Internal Stats
You can filter out your own views, and those of the other testers you might have looking at your Wistia videos before launch, based on IP.
In the Account Dashboard, click the Embed Settings option - this contains an IP filtering section where you can enter comma-separated IP addresses.
At this time, we do not support wildcards - only the full IP address.
The IP Filtering tool is only available on the Account Dashboard, so you will need owner-level permissions to access it.
Change the Subdomain (URL) of your Wistia Account
To change your Wistia account URL, you must be logged in as the account owner. Clickon the Account Dashboard. A dialog box like the one shown below will appear.
In the section labeled "Address", you will see a text box showing the current
URL of your Wistia account (in the case of the above picture,
http://jeff.wistia.com). Simply type the name you wish to use instead in the
text box (only letters, numbers, and hyphens) and press
at the bottom.
Once you change the URL for your account, all previous links referenced by http://YourOldName.wistia.com will no longer work.
Set a custom domain (CNAME)
If you have your own domain name, re-naming your Wistia account is no problem.
- First, you will need to select a subdomain for your account
- Then, have the CNAME for that subdomain point to: app.wistia.com
Once that is set up, the CNAME gets propagated (which can take a couple hours, so grab some coffee or a good book). To test if it is complete: open the Settings area in your Account Dashboard, change the "Address" to CNAME, and enter your new hostname.
Once you save, everything should be switched over for you, and you are now rocking a custom URL!
Any links previously shared or videos embedded from your account will still operate as normal.
CNAMEing your domain won't change the name in the embed codes. Our system isn't designed for customizable embed hosts. This will merely change the address where you/viewers can see your Wistia account videos. This choice was made because of effect it would have on video loading - essentially, our focus is on your video loading fast.
To see account limits, you must be logged in as the account owner. Select theoption from your Account Dashboard. This will show you how much bandwidth you have used, along with your current account limits. If you have a video limit on your account, that will be included as well.
Along the right-hand side of the Account Dashboard page, you will see usage and limit information within the panel labeled "Current Subscription".
To see billing statements, you must be logged in as the account owner. Click the "Billing statements" button on your Account Dashboard. This will bring up a dialog box showing a list of all the receipts for your transactions.
Adding & Removing Managers
From your Account Dashboard, click the "Add / remove managers" button on the Accounts page. A dialog will appear. To add managers, enter the new manager's email address into the text box and click.
To remove existing managers, click.
API Password and Public Token
From your Account Dashboard, select the API tab.
The API Username and Password are used most for interacting with the Wistia Data API, and the Public Token is used mostly for 3rd party service (like Pardot).
Transferring Ownership of Your Account
If you need to set someone else up as the owner of your account, the first step is to add them as a manager.
Once the new owner is a manager (or maybe they already were, you are so sneaky efficient!), select the Settings area in your Account Dashboard.
Select the new owner from the Account Owner menu, and then. Ownership will be transferred immediately.
