We are excited to announce the release of the Clipchamp Video Request web application, a new way of collecting video from anyone on any device, straight into a nominated YouTube channel or Google Drive account.

The web app is unique because files are compressed and converted in the sender’s browser before they get uploaded. They are also in a standard format, making them instantly shareable and ready to use.

Collect videos online from anyone

The Clipchamp Video Request application is perfect to easily collect videos from groups such as students, casting candidates, fans, customers or job applicants as a means of more efficiently managing the way large video files are received.

Using it is as simple as creating a link, which can then be shared via email, social media, SMS marketing or even added to a web page. From there, the receiver clicks on the link and can choose to either record a video on the spot or upload an existing video file.

All videos are compressed at no visible quality loss, resulting in smaller, more manageable files. When receiving videos, requesters will be notified as each new video gets submitted to them.

Creating new Video Request links is easy, and any old links can be disabled at any time.
