Record from both desktop and mobile devices

Pipe uses different tech to make sure your website visitors can record video from their PC or while on the go using their mobile device.

On mobile we use HTML5 to record the video locally and upload the data to our server.

On desktop we use Flash or HTML5/WebRTC to stream the audio and video data in real time to a media server where it's saved in a video file.

Up to 4k UltraHD video

Pipe can record high quality 1080p videos from supporting desktop webcams and 4k when used from mobile devices that support 4k video recording.

Bandwidth Independent

Pipe's client and server buffers make it possible to record high quality video over slow connections.


A snapshot is taken from each video to easily represent the video on your website.

Device rotation

When recording from mobile devices the device rotation is taken into account to make sure the resulting .mp4 and .jpg snapshot are properly oriented no matter where they're played back.

Convert to MP4

Pipe converts all the different types of video files to an ubiquitous .mp4 file with AAC audio and H.264 video that will work on the web, on your phone, on your iPod and on your PC/Mac.


With Pipe PRO accounts a PNG watermark can be applied to any corner of the video.

Choice Of Storage

Pipe stores the resulting video on it's servers for delivery but it can push the videos to your own S3 bucket or FTP account.

Pipe S3 Storage

We store the videos for delivery on our own Amazon S3 buckets. The videos are instantly available for playback.

Your S3 buckets

Pipe can push the videos to your own Amazon S3 account once they're converted to .mp4.


Pipe can also push the video to your (S)FTP account once the conversion process finishes.


Starting with Pipe 0.10 you can now push the videos to your own Dropbox account


Videos can be individually pushed to your YouTube channel from Pipe's account area.
