Custom Exercises

Custom exercises are a great way to add to your clinic's library of exercises.  Custom exercises can be text-only, or can also include embedded videos, and can be viewed by staff or assigned to patients just like any other exercise.

Custom exercises are only available to your clinic, and are currently not visible to any other clinics.  

  1. From your clinic dashboard, select "CUSTOM EXERCISES", then "CREATE EXERCISE".
  2. Fill out the information on your exercise - the title, description, instructions, and a link to the video if desired. We allow Youtube, Vimeo, Google-Drive hosted videos in most formats, or DropBox hosted videos in mp4 format.  See "Generating Video Links" below for instructions specific to your platform.
  3. Once created, your custom exercises will be visible and editable under the same CUSTOM EXERCISES tab in the menu of your dashboard. 
  4. To assign these exercises to clients, they can be selected from the "Video Exercises" dropdown in the "Assign Exercises" window:

Custom exercises are stored in the VIDEOS library and can be assigned to patients like any other video exercise. They are currently private only to your clinic's users.

Generating Video Links

We support videos hosted on YouTube, Vimeo, Google Drive, Dropbox, or any other service that provides raw url-access.


We recommend uploading videos to YouTube in Unlisted mode, which lets you embed your videos in NeuroVisual Trainer without the video be searchable on YouTube, or otherwise appearing on YouTube without the specific link. 

After your video has been uploaded to youtube, simply copy the share link and paste it into NeuroVisual Trainer.

The link can be found under the "SHARE" button on the video page.


To use Vimeo videos in NeuroVisual Trainer, simply copy the video URL either from the browser URL or the Share button.

Google Drive

We support videos hosted on Google Drive, but the file needs to be made accessible to anyone with a link.

  1. Login into your Google Drive
  2. Select the video that you want to use for your custom exercise.
  3. Right click on the document and select the "Get Link" option

4. Click "Restricted" to change the file permissions. Change the permissions to "Anyone with the link"

5. Click "Copy link" and use the link as your custom exercise video URL in NeuroVisual Trainer.


It's easy to get a link for a video you host on Dropbox. All you have to do is copy the normal share link!  We only support mp4 video files on DropBox.

First, you need the normal sharing link from Dropbox. Go to, find your file, and click the Copy Link button that appears when you hover over it. Then copy the link from the popup.

Or, on your computer, find the file you want to share from your Dropbox folder, right-click on it, and select  Copy Dropbox Link.

Warning: DropBox limits the amount of bandwidth that can be used on any given dropbox account. Video files are large and can use a lot of bandwidth. We recommend only hosting videos via DropBox if you have a Plus, Family, and Professional DropBox account.

Error (403)

If you get Error (403), it means that permissions on the file are not set correctly. 

Fix this error by doing the following:

  1. Select the "Share" menu on the file.
    1. On desktop it can be found by right clicking on the file.
    2. On the web, it can be found by clicking on the share icon (box with arrow pointing up out of it).
  2. Select "Link Settings" (sometimes just called "Settings"). 
  3. Ensure that "Who has access" is set to "Anyone with the link"
  4. Click "Save"

Raw URL / Website

We also support raw mp4 URLs from any website. Ask your web developer to upload and host your videos on your own website. Caveats:

  1. Videos must be in mp4 format
  2. The webserver must return a "Content-Type: video/mp4" header.  Most webservers will do this automatically.
  3. The webserver must NOT return a "Content-Disposition: attachment" header. Most webservers won't do this and will behave correctly.
