FAQ

  • What can I use Outclip for?

    With Outclip you can quickly and easily create and share screen recordings and webcam videos.

    With our Chrome extension  you can record your computer screen. To record your webcam you'll need to sign into the  web app. When you record either your screen or webcam, your video gets auto-uploaded. Moments after you're done recording you'll be able to preview the video and add a title and description. You can also watch the video through an external link, which you can share with others. If you want to share more than one video at a time, create a playlist. If you want to share videos privately with others, we've got you covered -- just create a group! When you sign up for Outclip, you'll have access to all the Basic plan features for free! As you use Outclip more and need to use premium features, upgrade to the Pro tier.

  • How is Outclip different from other products?

    OBS Studio/Camtasia/Quicktime-FFMPEG-Youtube/Dropbox/Box

    Today you can record a screencast with OBS Studio/Camtasia/Quicktime, compress it with FFMPEG, upload it to Youtube/Dropbox/Box and share the link with your team. This workflow involves three different apps and a lot of waiting, which is unnecessary overhead. Outclip lets you record and share in a single app that requires zero download, zero meddling with files and hardly any waiting. It helps you go from start to shared screen recording in the least time possible.

    Whatsapp and Instagram

    While Whatsapp and Instagram allow users to record and share video clips, they don’t support screen recording like Outclip.

    Slack

    While Slack is used mainly for group text chat and voice/video calling, it doesn’t support webcam video recording and screen recording like Outclip.

    GoToMeeting, Bluejeans, Zoom, Skype and other screen recording tools

    GoToMeeting and other screen recording tools allow screen recording but leave you with a video file that you need to upload somewhere and then share the link with someone. This is cumbersome. Outclip combines record, upload and share into one streamlined utility, so what takes three tools can be done with three clicks.
