The Clipchamp Webcam Recorder allows you to record clips inside your browser with your device’s webcam, without any need to install software. Videos are recorded in a format that can play on any device, and can also be compressed to save storage. You can then save your clip to your computer, or upload it directly to Google Drive, YouTube, Vimeo or Facebook.
We recommend to use our recorder in the latest version of Google Chrome or Firefox.
In order to record a video, you need to allow Clipchamp access to your webcam and microphone. This works with your computer's built-in as well as with external cameras and mics.
1. Allow access to webcam
Clipchamp needs permission to access your webcam before you can start recording using the Clipchamp Webcam Recorder. The first time you enter the Webcam Recording feature, a box should pop up in the top left corner of your screen asking you to allow Clipchamp to use your camera and microphone. Click on Allow and you will be able to use the feature.
2. Unblock Clipchamp from your browser
If you are faced with a blank Initializing webcam… screen that doesn’t take you to the Clipchamp Webcam Recorder after a few seconds, it may be that your browser has blocked access to your webcam. To unblock it, click on the camera icon in the top right corner, and select the option to always allow Clipchamp to access your camera and microphone. Select Finish and then refresh the page for it to take effect.
3. You can now access the Clipchamp Webcam Recorder
Start recording your video!
If you selected "No" or "Block" when Clipchamp asked for permission to access your webcam and microphone, you can enable access by following step 2 above. The same is also described in a bit more detail and for Firefox as well as Chrome in this help article: https://help.clipchamp.com/hc/en-us/articles/204756437-What-can-I-do-if-my-webcam-doesn-t-turn-on-
