Receive video from your users
Use our Collect API to start receiving videos from your users on your own website. People can record instantly or upload an existing video. Files get sent to your YouTube, Google Drive, Dropbox, MS Azure or AWS S3 account, directly from your users’ devices without a detour through our servers for better privacy protection. All HTML5, no Flash or other unsecure technologies.

All the benefits under the sun
HTML5 webcam recording
Users record videos directly on your site through our embeddable HTML5 camera recorder. They can optionally also submit files they already have on their device.
No server-side transcoding
User videos get converted on the client and submitted to you in 1 integrated workflow. You receive streaming-ready files in a standard format – e.g. MP4, WebM, FLV.
Client-side video compression
Videos also get compressed on the user’s device before they’re sent to your Cloud storage. Smaller files upload faster, you control the compression level.
Clipchamp never has access to your users’ video files. Videos are sent directly from user devices to your upload target.
More than 5 million users and counting
We’ve been developing unique, proprietary technology to bring video to the internet since 2014. In this short time our innovative compression approach, in-built privacy, and browser-based video converter and recorder have served millions of people worldwide.
