Receive video from your users
***We discontinued development of the plugin for WordPress. The Collect API is still available and can also get implemented on WP sites.***
If your site is built with WordPress, you can use our Collect plugin to start receiving videos from your users. People can record instantly on your site or upload an existing video. Files get sent to your YouTube, Google Drive, Dropbox, MS Azure or AWS S3 account.
Easy as 1,2,3
See how it works
The page you are currently on is based on WordPress.
We embedded our plugin to the right by adding the [ clipchamp ] shortcode to this section of the page.
Click the button to see a demo of the video plugin’s UI, recording and uploading process.
(All test videos you submit here get uploaded to a temporary folder in our Google Drive account and will get deleted.)
The branding, style and other options for input, output and positioning of the button on your site can be adjusted to fit your requirements.
All the benefits under the sun
Add a video recorder to posts & pages
Simply embed a video collection button in posts and pages through the ‘Clipchamp Uploader’ menu icon. Based on our HTML5 video API, the plugin brings modern video recording, transcoding and uploading to your WP projects.
Works with Gravity Forms, Gutenberg, page builders & multilingual sites
The video recorder plugin runs on WP pages built with Page Builders such as Beaver Builder and multilingual plugins like WPML. It includes a Gravity Forms integration and works with the new Gutenberg editor.
No coding required
There is no need to touch the code of your site to use or modify the plugin unless you require the use of some expert features. The most common options are all available in the plugin’s settings in the WP admin area.
Receive webcam recordings
Users can record videos directly on your website at 360p, 480p, 720p or 1080p, depending on what’s supported by their webcam or phone camera.
Collect smaller files faster
Our plugin compresses video files on the user device before they get uploaded, resulting in much faster uploads. You control the compression level.
Control the video format
Videos that your users submit on your site get uploaded in a format that you can choose in the plugin’s settings. Format options include MP4 (the most suitable for most projects), WebM, FLV and WMV/ASF. Webcam recordings are uploaded as MP4 or WebM.
Receive other video files
In addition to webcam recordings, users can optionally also upload videos to you that they already have on their device, both from desktop and mobile.
Submit videos to your cloud storage
Receive user videos straight to your YouTube, Google Drive, Dropbox, AWS S3 or MS Azure accounts or the WordPress Media Gallery. Available upload targets depend on the Clipchamp API plan you subscribe to at the end of the trial phase.
Adjust branding & styling
Your users don’t need to have Flash enabled to record videos – it’s unsafe and blocked by default by many browsers. You also don’t need to set up any WebRTC or streaming-server solution where recording quality depends on your users’ internet bandwidth.
Guided installation for easy setup
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.
How do I install the recorder plugin?
Search for Clipchamp in the plugin directory in your WP admin panel. Install the plugin and click ‘activate’ on the plugin installation screen.
WP Engine customers: we’re also available in the WPE Solution Center.
Do you have access to my users’ videos?
No. The Collect WP plugin and API directly sends the videos from the client into your account at the cloud storage provider and without taking a detour through Clipchamp servers.
Does it work on mobile?
Yes, on Android devices, the recorder and uploader works in mobile Chrome. On iOS devices, the widget works in mobile Safari.
