Kanopy Streaming Video – Free with your library card.
Kanopy is an on-demand streaming video service with a unique collection of over 30,000 films including movies, documentaries, childrens, foreign and indie films.
Here’s how it works:
Your library has generously given you 5 play credits every month. So you can watch up to 5 films each month.
3 days to watch each film. Once you press play on a film, you have 3 days to view it as many times as you like without using another play credit.
Play credits reset on the 1st of the month. Once you have reached your quota of films, you will not be able to play any films until the new month starts when you will be given a fresh quota of 5 play credits again.
Before you begin you must create your personal Kanopy account (see instructions below).
Start by clicking the sign up button – top right on the Kanopy website.
The screen below will be displayed.
Next – Enter your name and email address and choose a password then click the “Sign up” button.
You will be sent an email. Open your email and look for the verification message from Kanopy.
IMPORTANT – Make sure you click on the verify email button in the message. You will then return to the Kanopy website.
You will then need to confirm your West Gippsland Libraries membership.
Click on the Add library card button.
Enter your West Gippsland Libraries library card number (8 digits – no spaces).
Enter your library password/PIN (not the one you created for Kanopy).
Thats it! You are now ready to start watching Kanopy streaming videos.
Also check out Kanopy Kids – link in the top right of the Kanopy website – to stream a large range of Children’s films.
You can access Kanopy from any device, including iOS, Android, Apple TV, Roku, and Chromecast.
