Pipe is the natural evolution of HDFVR - our desktop and mobile video recording software for web sites.
HDFVR's been a great success from it's launch in 2009 but with the emergence of mobile devices, HTML5, native apps, cloud storage and the plethora of video containers and codecs supported by various devices and browser makers it was clear HDFVR could no longer deliver value.
The task of recording and delivering video had become infinitely more fragmented.
In 2014 we started work on HDFVR Cloud and after 2 releases it was clear that video recording was just a small part of what we were building.
Thus, in 2015, Pipe was born. Pipe handles desktop and mobile video recording, recording from apps (iOS & Android SDK), landscape/portrait management in mobile videos, different file formats, different audio and video codecs, transcoding to mp4, snapshots, storage and delivery, Webhooks and JS APIs.
