Common Questions

What can I do with this?

The Clipchamp Video Request lets anyone send large video files by simply creating a unique link and sharing it with whoever they want to collect videos from. Your visitors can click to either 1) record videos and upload to you or 2) upload video files they already have on their device. The Video Request produces an MP4 file (VP9 coming) and compresses the file to speed up file upload. The video file(s) are sent to the requestor’s YouTube Channel or Google Drive destination.

What's different about it?

Your users’ video files get compressed & converted on the client before they get uploaded to you. As a result, you’ll get smaller files in 1 standard format MP4 (VP9 coming) and they upload much faster. You don’t need any technical know-how to receive videos and anyone can send you videos without any technical complexity in the process.

Do videos go through Clipchamp servers?

No, all videos that you get sent from the people you share the link with get uploaded straight from their device to your YouTube or Google Drive account. Clipchamp never sees or touches the files, you’re in full control. You can thus collect any type of video safely - such as interview pitches, auditions, competition entries, customer feedback or educational videos.

Is the Clipchamp technology purely HTML5?

Yes, the Video Request is using modern web technologies and neither you or people sending you videos require Flash or any other special plugins to be installed for Clipchamp to work on their devices. The best browser to use Clipchamp in is Google Chrome.

Do Clipchamp Video Requests work on mobile?

Yes, you can collect videos across desktop and mobile devices. Just share your unique video request link with anyone you’d like to get videos from and they’re ready to go.
