The Clipchamp video API brings video recording and faster uploading to any website or web app.
It lets site owners embed a button on their website or web app that users can click to record, compress, convert & upload videos.
It comes with a number of resolution, format and compression options. Users' video files get processed on the client before they get uploaded.
As a result, the site owner gets smaller files - which upload faster - in 1 standard format of their choice (MP4, WebM, FLV,...). This reduces or even eliminates costs involved in server-side video transcoding.
The API is built using HTML5 - no Flash or other outdated plugins involved. It works in desktop and mobile browsers.
All user-generated videos get processed on the client device inside the browser and uploaded from there to the site owner's cloud storage, they don't get routed through or processed on Clipchamp servers.
Client-side processing reduces server-side transcoding costs and infrastructure complexity. In addition, the Clipchamp API works on desktop and mobile and is cross-browser compatible.
