The Clipchamp API lets you embed a button on your website or web app that your visitors can click on to record, compress, convert & upload videos to you. It comes with a number of resolution (incl. 480p, 720p, 1080p), format (incl. MP4 and WebM) and compression (5 levels) options.
Your users' video files get processed (converted & compressed) on the client before they get uploaded to you, resulting in smaller files and faster uploads. This helps reduce or eliminate costs involved in server-side video transcoding. The API is built using HTML5 (no Flash involved), and works in desktop and mobile browsers.
