    Thank you for contacting us. 

    I'm quite confused about your question. Are you referring adding a video testimonial to your form to be seen by your user or do you want to allow your user to upload their video testimonial to your form?

    If the situation is the first case, you can upload video to your form by using widget such as youtube, Iframe embed and testimonial widget. Here is a demo form includes all these widgets. Feel free to clone it.

    If the thing you want is the second case, you can add your form to an upload field to allow your user to upload videos. However, the extension of the video should be the extension specified in this field. 

    If your question is not related any of these, please provide us some more information.

    I want to allow the user of the form to upload their video testimonial to my form, but want them to be able to take the video from the form directly, not via take a video from camera, save file then upload. so camera interface ideally is on the form when the user clicks on it

    I do not believe we currently have any widgets that allow for capturing and uploading video through the form.  We have a widget that will allow for taking photos, but not for video.  This is likely due to the file size of uncompressed video.  A short video would very quickly become a large file.

    If you have any widget that can capture video live, you may try embedding the code using the iframe embed widget on the form. However, please note that the video captured cannot be stored with JotForm submissions since it is being accessed using an iframe. This might work only if the widget offers to save the recorded video to its account or any external storage space like Google Drive/DropBox. 

    Hope this information helps!
