Hippo Video overview

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.

Hippo Video allows users to record videos through a web launcher and extension for Google Chrome, with options for webcam, audio, and screen recording. Guest recording links can be shared with anyone, enabling the creation of videos by non-users. Videos can also be imported into Hippo Video from other systems for editing. The quick editing tools allow users to trim, cut, crop, and annotate videos, while with the pro editing tools, users can add any number of background music or narration tracks, adjust clip settings, and attach introduction and end cards.

Videos can be exported from Hippo Video to YouTube, Vimeo, Google Drive, and Google Classroom, and added to support tickets through integrations with Zendesk and Freshdesk. Password protection allows users to control who can access their shared videos, and expiration dates can be added to shared video links. Real-time analytics give users insight into number of views and engagement with videos.

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.

I use it to record screen to create How-To videos. I use it too to help my client when they have a problem with a software or Wordpress. I create a video to show them what they have to do and they keep the video as a reminder.

Pros
Very user friendly, Easy to customize, Easy to edit video, Good Chrome Plugin

Cons
I didn't find anything wrong until now. I like this software/app very much.

My favorite online basic video editor.

This web-based service eliminates my requirements of PC for small editing/correction of any premade projects. And if I create the whole project here I just need web browser work that's great for a traveler video editing which I am considering to do. For this price point I definately go with it, the bandwidth is limited but you always update to another 3rd party software and overcome this limitation. I am very happy to use with this service and love to recomended my friends to use this.

Pros
Import videos from cloud, record screen, webcam or ip-camera to record your video and edit them on the go, options are unlimited. It helps me to update my animation video directly on YT. This eliminates all my needs of editing or just little touchups for videos. Import from g-drive import and edit and re-upload to YT. Cut, Copy, Crop very easily. With export directly to my G drive it is easy for me to share screen capturing videos with client. Which is a grate features for me. 10 min video limitation is also more then enough for me.

Cons
You can only edit some basic, no effect they offer. You have to create your import and export video intro and outro. For basic home video and sharing screen recording for tutorial is done with no problem, if you need more then then you have to look elsewhare.

If you don't know Hippo, then you really should look at their website. I would not call it business problems what Hippo Video is solving, but it made my workflow immensely more structured and straightforward. I believe everyone will agree that the use of Video is a must in today's communication. Hippo Video is there to help you with sales, marketing, and support related tasks. There are different plans for these named categories, or you can choose to get a custom made Enterprise tier, which will hold whatever your business requires.

Pros
The first thing that comes to mind when someone mentions Hippo Video is excellent customer focus. It must be said. I had some, for me, challenging questions for a project I was managing. Boom. Sir, would it be convenient for you if we would set up a call and go over your specific use case? Well, yes. That gave me a good feeling about the product, purely due to the proactive attitude. I had still to setup Hippo Video, but I felt very confident it would work.

Cons
Some parts of the user interface are not that clear at first glance. There is always room for improvement, and I did go over the, in my opinion, unlogical placement of individual elements. The team made notes of my feedback to discuss internally.

Video hippo is great for both personal and business use. You can use it for yourself to make screen records or use it to create sales videos for sales development.

Pros
Love the UI/UX. Very future rich software. Video editing, screen recording and video hosting are the main features of this tool. You can also use it to record testimonials. Very multi functional.

Cons
My only problem is that it's buggy at times. Sometimes video editing lags/freezes. Screen recording don't properly record. Videos can disappear.
