More features than you can poke a stick at

Internal camera & microphone

Our recorder works with your computer’s built-in webcam and mic. If there’s more than one available, you can choose your preferred one before starting a recording.

Video editing options

We included a few video editing tools directly in the webcam recorder. Edit after finishing a recording, after saving the original or skip 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 possible when 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.

USB webcam & external microphone

You can select an external camera and/or mic as the source/s for your video and audio input. This works with USB webcams that have mics built-in as well as standalone microphones.

Chromebook friendly

Our online recorder works in-browser for Mac, Linux, Windows and Chromebooks. It’s the video tool of choice for thousands of schools around the world that use Chromebooks in their classrooms.
