What is Hippo Video?

Hippo Video is a cloud-based video management software which allows users to capture, edit, and share video, audio, and screen recordings. The platform can be used to create customer testimonials, how-to guides, explainer videos, training content, and more.

Key benefits of using Hippo Video

  • Users can record audio and video at any time with the click of a button, and send out guest recording links to allow non-users to create videos.

  • Quick editing tools allow users to trim, cut, crop, and annotate video clips, and pro editing tools enable the addition of background music or narration, introduction and end cards, and adjustment of clip settings and markup.

  • Videos can be exported to YouTube, Vimeo, Google Drive, and Google Classroom, shared on LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter, added to Zendesk or Freshdesk, or embedded directly in websites and emails.

  • Shared videos can be protected with passwords to control access, and expiry dates can be set for shared video links.

  • Real-time engagement graphs give users insight into the number of views of each video and which videos are driving the most engagement and value to the business.

    Pros
    Hats off Hippo video for this amazing product and I am sure they will keep integrating new awesome features in the future.
    It has an excellent integration with other platforms like YouTube or facebook. It is very easy to use, with just a few touches you can create very good videos with your cell phone.
    A great tool to send videos to prospects and scale the outreach without compromising the quality.
    Cons
    The tool is still very unstable and the chrome extension always crashes the browser. There's no windows 10 app as available in the loom.
    I was disappointed that I Hippo Video could not interface with my desktop version of Outlook 365, but I bought the software anyway.
    Hippo Video has some trouble with the extension for web browsers.

    The ease of use. Makes it easier to grasp + easier to create, edit, store, share & track ur videos.

    Reviewed 6 years ago

    1. more mileage for my investment 2. ease of use versus Zoom 3. Support staff is more responsive than Zooms.

    Pros

    The ease of use is so much easier to grasp PLUS it's 10 times easier to create, edit, store, share and track your videos. In addition, you can screen capture, webcam capture or audio capture thus it allowed me to eliminate the need to use tiny screen capture + Zoom to create, edit, and produce videos etc. 1. Everything you need is all within the Hippo Video platform! Zoom can't touch this! 2. Easily create or record videos for free at the start of a button. It can be a screen capture, webcam capture or audio capture. 3. Free version allows you to record up to 10 minutes 4. Most important, great customer support-respond quickly!

    Cons

    1. Hipp Video needs to do more marketing to get their name out. 2. They have a good product which I think is better than Zoom and has more bells and whistles to offer a subscriber. It's not being marketed properly to make people and businesses aware.

    Hippo Video was years ahead competitor in back then and still competes strong

    Reviewed a year ago

    I have bee using Hippo Video now 5+ years and they have managed to compete in the tough SaaS environment up to date. And I still don't have any other similar tool to make online recordings.

    Pros

    I really do use Hippo Video when I need to record whole desktop or an online meeting. This has been like that for from 2018 when I started to use it. Recording is easy and video storage quota is huge. With a Chrome browser and Hippo Plugin+online logging, the recording works 99% when you don't record more than 1hour.

    Cons

    Unfortunately long video recording somewhere about 90minutes are most likely to fail every time. This may be related to the HD full desktop recording, where the file size exceeds over one 1GB. Recording will stop and the file is lost or corrupted. This issue has been there since from the beginning and the support team hasn't been able to fix it at all. So a full online training day is still impossible to be recorded, unfortunately.If I record 1+ hour recording, I can't stop it and instantly make a new recording because the browser is still sending data to database and then processing recording. Processing may take about 15 minutes, so you can't record continuously.

    Create Educational Videos With Absolute Ease

    Reviewed 2 years ago

    It is a perfect match for the work we do. It accomplishes our goals precisely. Records, edits, and publishes. Done, it's ready! That simple.

    Pros

    It has a very intuitive user interface. Anyone may record, review the editing process, and quickly and efficiently finish the content. As a result, it is ideal for those who are not video editors and avoids additional complicated features. Since it is web-based, it is simple to access.

    Cons

    The quality ought to have been a little bit higher, given the pricing. The pro features lag rather frequently, which is annoying and interferes with workflow.
