    I would like to develop an app where a user can capture videos using a phone camera which would become part of the data in the table.

    You can create a File Upload form:

    Then with this form, you can create a Jotform app.

    Hello there,

    The file upload field will allow user to capture and submit a video.

    Just make sure that you have added the name extension of the video in the file upload's file types.

    Thank you for your response.

    I checked your form and it looks like you have added mov (no period) in your file type already. I did a test to confirm and it has worked as expected already.

    Now my concern is to reduce the time it needs to upload the .mov file. Is it possible because it is taking lots of time to upload the .mov files.

    Unfortunately, no, it is not possible to optimize the upload time of any file. Please note that the time to upload a file completely depends on the size of the file and your internet connectivity speed.

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.
