I've seen this "user error" happen again and again:

Person A doesn't have access to a video and asks Person B to give him or her access. Person B uses the share functionality to share the video, but this only sends them a link to the video to their email--it doesn't give them permissions-- so they see an error page when they click on the link to see the video.

 

Proposed idea:

During the sharing dialog, warn the user that the recipient doesn't have permissions to view the video, and have an option to give them permission: either have a checkbox that gives the sharee permissions, or have a link to the permissions page
