You can use Clipchamp for free and there are also a number of paid plans to upgrade to. The plans and upgrade options that are available depend on the product you'd like to use.
In Clipchamp's free tier, you can process up to 5 videos per month on clipchamp.com and can create up to 2 Video Request links to collect videos from others. You can also use your free Clipchamp account to record webcam videos inside Gmail in Chrome and send video attachments in Gmail in Chrome. To do so, you need to install the Clipchamp extension from the Chrome store.
The Convert/Record/Edit/Compress product is part of your free Clipchamp account. The free version of this product comes with a limited quota of videos you can process each month.
The Professional plan for Convert/Record/Edit/Compress includes unlimited videos and a number of additional Pro features such as longer webcam recordings. This means that you can convert, compress, edit and record as many videos as you like while you're on the Pro plan. You can cancel this plan on a month-to-month basis (if you subscribed to the monthly option) and go back to the Free tier of Clipchamp.
The Clipchamp Video Request product is also part of your free Clipchamp account. You can use this product to collect video files from friends, colleagues and family. The free Clipchamp account lets you create a limited number of Video Requests per month. These Requests also expire after some time.
The Professional plan of the Video Request includes a higher quota of Requests you can create, Requests don't expire and the plan also comes with additional Pro features.
There is also an Enterprise plan for this product that lets you use your own branding to request videos from fans, users, site visitors, etc.
The Clipchamp API - which lets you use all of Clipchamp's features on your own website - is a paid service and we offer a number of subscription options to choose from - the API is not part of a free Clipchamp account. Every API plan comes with a trial period so you can implement and test both the API and our WordPress plugin.
If you work in Education, we offer a number of specially discounted options to use the paid versions of our products. These options are exclusively available for educators and for instance include the Classroom plan for our webcam recorder (which also provides unlimited access to all other features of the Convert/Record/Edit/Compress product). You can sign up to the Classroom plan here or get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to discuss usage options for your class, school or district.
