Is there a way to redirect a link to another video in Google Drive when both are made shareable?

I ask this because I have shared someone a link to an older video and I want them to access the new video even when they click on older link.


There's no way to redirect links however can use Drive's native version control to get the same result.

  1. Right click on the original video file
  2. Select Manage versions...
  3. Click upload new version

Here's that in action

Replace Older Version with New Version

The URL to that video (file) does not change. In effect people who click the older link will be served the latest version of the file.

If you want to have both the former and new version available at the same time, you can make a copy of the older video

Make a copy

Then replace the original file with a new version

New Version
