  7. Go to the "Export" tab and copy an iFrame code to embed the video to your website, a URL of the video page or URL for your own player.

    On this tab you can download the uploaded video in the required quality by selecting its bitrate and clicking "Download video".

The video is distributed via a CDN resource. A video URL contains a domain name like "12345.gvideo.io", that was automatically generated and configured for your account. If you want to use your custom domain (not "12345.gvideo.io" ), change the CDN settings.   

If the video is requested over a direct link or from the website where you have inserted the iFrame code, all views will be counted for the statistics. To see it, go to the video settings (step 5) and click the "Statistics" tab.
