iDVD is no longer on my computer. How do I share an iMovie?

With OS 10.9, Apple discontinued offering iDVD. When you are finished creating your iMovie video, there are alternatives to share the video that are simpler, quicker, and more cost effective than burning and distributing multiple DVDs.

1. Save the video as a file and Share via email using mailfile.nsd.org.

2. Post the video to YouTube or TeacherTube. Share the link only with an appropriate audience and communicate that those invited to view the video should only share with others if appropriate to assure that student privacy is protected. Follow district and campus standards regarding using images or video of your students.

When posting the video, be sure to chose unlisted or private settings to that the video will not be included in the results of YouTube or Google searches. YouTube has a good video explaining Settings: Unlisted v Private v Public.

  • Private YouTube videos are viewable only by those invited by email and requires that the viewer have a YouTube account.
  • Unlisted YouTube videos are viewable only by those invited by email and does not require that the viewer have a YouTube account.
  • Atomic Learning has a video series YouTube for Educators about posting video to YouTube. Section C lesson 3; and Section E, lesson 2, have information about privacy settings and a description of the Unlisted, Private and Public settings. Section H lessons 3, 4 and 5, focus on privacy and safety issues.
