What is Webcam Recording?

A screen recording is a soundless video of your screen that displays all of the movements, clicks and scrolls that occur on-screen during the recording. A webcam recording is a screen recording that simultaneously utilizes the webcam to create a video that features you and your voice. The product of a webcam recording will be a screen recording with sound and video.

What are webcam recordings used for?

Webcam recordings can be used as a form of communication. You can use your webcam to record a video of yourself sharing an idea, explaining a concept, or presenting a project. Webcam recordings are important to use when communicating because they are much easier to digest than heaps of text. Video is much more engaging than other forms of content, so you may want to consider how you can implement web recordings into your work. CloudApp makes doing so extremely easy with our video recording software, which is found alongside the other useful tools in our all-in-one native app.

CloudApp’s Webcam Recorder

Screen recording makes explaining easy – and adding a webcam recording can further elevate your content. By adding a face and voice to your screen recording, you can create customized content for customers or colleagues. Webcam recordings give you the opportunity to strengthen relationships with clients or coworkers by adding a human touch that proves to be meaningful. And if you’re not in the mood to show your face, you can simply screen record with audio, allowing you to narrate the content. You can even edit your recording within CloudApp if you make any mistakes – simply cut or trim the pieces you don’t want.

Your webcam recording will be automatically copied to your clipboard and ready to share with others quickly and easily. Don’t fret – the link to your personal recording can be secured with a password and set to expire after a desired amount of time. It’s also stored safely in the cloud to keep you and your content protected.

Webcam Recording Use Cases by Role

Engineering – Make using your code crystal clear by narrating your content to provide in depth explanations. The engineering and developing process can be complex, but webcam recording allows you to simplify things by creating easy-to-follow walkthroughs.

Customer Support – Transform the way you communicate with customers in need of your support. By adding your face and voice to a screen recording, you can deliver in-depth answers to specific questions not covered in the FAQ section. Content narration provides customers with extra guidance when screen captures or recordings aren’t enough. Customers will feel more heard and cared for when they experience human communication, which beats a cold automated email reply directing them to the FAQ section.

Sales – Strengthen relationships with clients using a personal touch in your screen recordings. Building trust is crucial for closing sales. Take a step in the right direction by opting to use a webcam recording with your face and voice to introduce yourself rather than doing so over email. Your clients will appreciate that you went the extra mile to create personalized content for them.

Product – Create comprehensive product guides that go the extra mile with video and audio recordings. Customers like to be informed about the product they are purchasing and the company they are giving their business to, so including a personal explanation that improves their understanding during a product demo can be crucial to closing sales.
