Love this app. I've been waiting for something like this for my YouTube channel. If you need an app to record with on your computer then use this 🙂


Perfect for getting my Mock Trial students to practice voice inflection and facial expressions.


Way better than the other ones because none of the other webcam recorders lets you watch your video!


"Instructions are so simple and user friendly and output quality is also excellent. Thanks a ton!!!"


Es rapido y super claro con las instrucciones es una buena herramienta a tomar en cuenta para los proyectos audiovisuales.


Me encanta!!! My rapido y facil, me ayudo mucho.


Parfait et très simple d'utilisation.


Here is what's included

Use the internal camera & microphone

Our recorder works with your computer's built-in webcam and mic. If there's more than 1 camera or mic available, you can select the one you want on the recording screen before starting a recording.

Free Editing Options

We included a free video editor directly in our webcam recorder. You can use all editing options after finishing a recording, edit your video later after saving the original first or skip the editing altogether.

Recording Resolutions

You can record videos at a resolution of 360p, 480p, 720p or 1080p. Most webcams have a maximum resolution of 720p, therefore 1080p is only possible if your webcam supports it.

Privacy Protection

Clipchamp never has access to your videos unlike any other online provider. Webcam recordings always stay on your computer unless you make use of one of our integrated upload options.

Use a USB webcam and external mic

You can also select an external webcam and/or mic as the sources for your video and audio input. This works with USB webcams that have mics built-in as well as separate external microphones.

Recording Duration

Record videos of up to 5 minutes length in our free plan and take longer videos of up to 30 minutes in the Business plan.

Output Resolutions

Save your video in the resolution you recorded it in or change it to 240p, 360p, 480p, or 720p. Note that you can keep or change the resolution to a lower one (downscale), not change it to a higher one (upscale).

Optimized for Chromebooks

Our recorder works in the browser on Mac, Linux and Windows machines but most importantly also on Chromebooks, unlike any other. It is the video tool of choice for thousands of schools around the world that use Chromebooks in their classrooms.

Part of the Clipchamp video tools

Our online recorder is part of the video tools you can use right here on our website. They also include a video converter, video editor and video compressor. All you need is a computer and a web browser (we recommend Chrome).

Create a free account and convert, edit, compress and record up to 5 videos per month. Each recording in the free plan can be up to 5 minutes long. Get 30-minute recordings and unlimited videos by upgrading to the Business Plan at any time.

With this being my first time ever using or trying to use a video recorder I thought for sure I was going to get stressed out and give up. Fortunately this wonderful app made it so easy, it did all the work for me.

A super convenient way to record video and upload to YouTube. Great for what I need.

The best Webcam Recorder for any project


Clipchamp’s video recorder works in Chrome, Firefox, Edge and Safari (11) on Windows, Mac and Linux. It also works on machines where no software can be installed, such as Chromebooks and corporate laptops that prevent their users from installing applications.

Direct Sharing

After you record a video you can upload it directly to your YouTube channel. We also included direct submission options for Google Drive, Facebook and Vimeo. To upload to any other provider, save the recording locally first.


We're using the latest in web technology and you don't need any outdated and insecure plugins such as Flash - unlike other webcams online. Our HTML5 webcam recorder combines the benefits of installed and online apps without their downsides.

Smaller Files

Our built-in video compression feature lets you further reduce the file size of webcam recordings so you can either save them more easily on your computer or upload them much more quickly to video sharing platforms.
