I found a way to change the video that shows up when a new users logs into confluence.

  • Copy this plugin file from your server


  • change the .jar into .zip and extract it

  • go to 


  • changes must be made in the following two files



  • Search:

YouTubePlayer.embedVideo("grow-intro-video-placeholder", "09CuRQoJzB8", { width: 560, height:315, autoplay: 0, hl: User.getUserLocale()});


  • The„09CuRQoJzB8“ is the YouTube ID of the Atlassian Video

  • URL of the new video:
  • Change the ID in the sourcode to your ID (e.g. KIe4NRrrYmA)
  • Zip the complete filetree, change the format back to .jar and upload it to your server

  • After a reboot your new users will see your video instead of the Atlassian Video.
