Are VideoTomb.com links safe to click? Yes, VideoTomb.com only allows certain curated websites to display content and otherwise only loads video-files inside the video-element and masks in the image-element.
We are however unable to know what the contents of links contain.
Can VideoTomb videos be decrypted? We will strive to make videos hard to decrypt by supplying randomization functions. However,
there are some technical limits due to compression. Our aim is to hide videos from human eyes mainly.
What browsers does VideoTomb.com work with? The VideoTomb viewer works with Chrome, Firefox and Opera, on desktop as well as mobile.
Internet Explorer Edge is supported, however the old Internet Explorer is not supported.
If an issue presents itself in your browser, please let us know by email and we will work to resolve it.
How is privacy with VideoTomb.com? VideoTomb does not know what videos you view, as we only host a static HTML viewer with no backend.
The viewer receives the video-url and decryption mask through the hashtag parameter - which is never submitted to the internet.

the rest unaltered.

hidden messages for your vlog.

<iframe width="500" height="400" src="https://www.videotomb.com/v/#......" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen allow="encrypted-media;"></iframe>
