Recording Video In-Browser

TLDR: Need to record a quick video? You can use Speakflow to record videos using your webcam.

Note: Speakflow is best used along with professional teleprompter hardware. However, we do offer video recording functionality for those that would like to record with their webcam. You could also choose to record video with Zoom, Apple's Photobooth software, etc. 


Speakflow's video feature is useful for things like recording quick team updates and short video messages to share with colleagues. We recommend keeping the record time around 10 minutes. If you're recording long-form video (more than ~20minutes), we recommend using dedicated video recording devices or software.


Free users can record videos and download the video locally in .webm format, the video isn't stored by Speakflow.

Users on paid plans can record and save multiple takes to Speakflow, and easily share them via a link. Those with HD webcams can record full 1920x1080p video.

To stop the recording, click "Stop" in the bottom left-hand corner.

Recording Vertical Videos

Vertical video can only be recorded from Mobile Devices that support vertical video recording.

You can change your mic and camera settings by clicking the "gear" icon in the bottom right-hand corner. To record in Full 1080 HD, check the box. Otherwise, videos will record in 720p.

Downloading Your Video

When you stop the recording, the video will automatically prompt you to download the video in .webm format.

Plus and Pro users have the option to share the video via a link.

To download a video, go to the "Watch" page by clicking the link in the modal after recording a video (seen below). To share, click the gray textbox to copy the URL to the video's page – you can paste it anywhere on the web, in emails, messaging apps, etc.
