Enable ScreenPal Video Preview on a site

ScreenPal Video Preview is a feature that is included when you record a video message using the ScreenPal Chrome extension.  Video Preview enables you to experience videos without having to open them and leave the webpage you are currently visiting. 

When you record within your browser using the ScreenPal extension, and then hover over a video link, the video plays in a small preview window.  The preview feature will work on any ScreenPal video link only when you have the ScreenPal extension installed. 


On some sites, ScreenPal has disabled this feature by default.  For example, when you visit your account homepage, we have disabled video preview as this may be distracting to managing your video library (and there is already a preview function for each video).  

You may find other sites where we have disabled video preview, but you have the option to enable it from the extension menu. Just click the ScreenPal extension icon to view the menu. Click the Settings icon () in the bottom right corner of the extension menu. Finally, move the slider for Preview videos on hover to On.
