Clipchamp Plugin for WordPress opens the door to user generated video for millions of websites.
Video conversion and compression provider Clipchamp Pty Ltd have announced the release of their brand new WordPress plugin. The plugin simplifies the process of deploying the Clipchamp API on any WordPress website allowing businesses and website owners to collect user generated videos on their website without the need to engage any web development resources.
Once deployed, the plugin displays a simple button on a WordPress-based website that visitors can click to upload video files to a designated storage location. Visitors can either record videos on the spot or submit existing files. Website owners can define the upload location for the videos, including the WP Media Gallery, their YouTube channel, a Google Drive, Amazon S3 or Microsoft Azure account or a private web server. With Clipchamp all submitted videos are compressed and converted before they get uploaded to a format the website owner selects, including MP4 or WebM. The process takes place within the browser, videos get submitted directly to the website owner’s cloud storage without going through Clipchamp servers, ensuring maximum privacy for end users.
The released plugin, called ‘Clipchamp Video Converter and Webcam Recorder’ will be available for free and is intended to be used in conjunction with any of the Clipchamp API plans available at https://clipchamp.com/pricing. All plans come with a free 30 day trial period.
