Clipchamp is a helpful tool not just for video editor and blogger like me. It lets users convert, compress and record videos in the browser. Worry not because it’s a free service that doesn’t require installing software or uploading files to an online converter or compressor.
Output format options are MP4, WebM, WMV, FLV or GIF. I find it convenient to use as there are no input file size restrictions. As successfully tested by Clipchamp, videos of up to 20GB can be uploaded.
According to Clipchamp Help Center, Clipchamp has built technology that processes video files inside the browser on the user’s computer unlike other providers where files have to be uploaded to a server for processing. This makes the process much faster and provides much better privacy as processed video files never leave the user’s computer unless they decide to share them.
Finished videos can be shared directly to Google Drive, Vimeo, Facebook and YouTube or simply saved. Clipchamp also put some nifty features into the app, for instance you can upload your processed video to multiple video sharing platforms at once and it will even give you the link of your uploaded file for easier sharing.
The webcam recording technology Clipchamp built also runs inside the browser without the need for any additional plugins or software downloads, which is why it works on any kind of device including Chromebooks. You can record videos at 360p, 480p or 720p resolution, either using your computer’s webcam and microphone or an external webcam and/or mic. When a recording is finished, the resulting video file can be compressed using Clipchamp to make it even smaller and easier to share.
Clipchamp also have a version of the app available that enables webcam recording, video compression, video conversion and fast uploads on any website or web app – the Clipchamp API. It uses our patent-pending tech and allows any website owner to receive video files from their users in a way that hasn’t been possible before.
