    Is there a field to capture video?

    Asked by Kquest on September 11, 2015 at 11:58 PM

    I'm looking for the same thing - a video capture solution that uploads to the cloud rather than to the YouTube channel of the person recording.  Has anyone come up with a solution?

    Unfortunately, the current widget that can help you record your video in your form is by using the "WebCam 2 YouTube" widget. 


    Do let us know if you need further assistance.

    Hi Chriistian,


    The link  "WebCam 2 YouTube"  is currently not working, can you please let me know if thre are any other applications using which I can capture video directly using the form?

    By the way, I really love the interface and the options you have inside JotForms..this capturing video directly and adding it to the form is the final piece to the puzzle

    You may try a standard File Upload field in a single file upload mode ('Multiple Files' option disabled).

    That field should allow mobile users to capture videos.

    Make sure to increase the max file size, and update allowed file extensions.

    If you need any further assistance, please let us know.
