Using Record + Record Requests

Capture your most important messages with Record and Record Requests. Record tools take the hassle out of capturing first-person footage for your videos — request responses, hit record, and see the final results all within Biteable

How to send Record Requests

Send a Record Request to invite coworkers or customers to make a cameo in your video. A Record Request can be sent to anyone — they don't need to have a Biteable account.

Click "+ New video" via the top menu bar, then "Request recording"

Give your record request a name, add some background info for your recipients, and include a timeframe for when you'd like to receive your responses. Click "Create".

Include a prompt for every video response you'd like recipients to record. Each prompt will be recorded separately.

When you've added all your prompts, copy your unique link, then share with your recipients. Send your link to as many people as you'd like.

When your recipient clicks on the link they'll see all your relevant project information, video prompts, and a screen to record their responses. Record will automatically connect to any device’s camera and microphone for quick and easy capture — just hit record and start speaking.

Recording a response

The Record screen includes your prompt, the contributor’s video preview, and a space to write speaking notes.

Contributors will be asked to record a new video response for each prompt you include. This makes it easy to add relevant responses to different scenes in your video.

Contributors can also record their screens by pressing the "Record my screen" button, then choosing which screen they'd like to record. Find out more here.

Reviewing video responses

Once your contributors have recorded and approved their responses, we’ll let you know. Submissions are immediately imported into your "My Uploads" folder via the "Add" tab of any video.

Record yourself

Want to be the star of your own video? You can also use our Record feature to self-record directly into your Biteable account. You’ll find the “Record yourself” button via the "New" dropdown in the top menu bar.

You can also record your screen by hitting the "Record my screen" button to the left of your screen. Find out more about recording your screen here.

Adding Record clips to your videos

Access all Record Request submissions and Record videos via the "Recordings" tab to the left of your canvas. Here you'll find folders for each Record and Record Request you've captured.

Say goodbye to downloading, uploading, attaching, and repeat — everything is waiting for you right within Biteable.

Sharing your recorded footage

You don't have to add your recorded footage to your Biteable video, you can also share just your recording from its very own watch page. When you're finished recording your message, click the "Copy link" button to generate a unique watch page link. Share this link with anyone to quickly and easily communicate your message.

What else do I need to know?

Record works on most devices, including mobile.

The quality of the recording will depend on the device it was recorded on. Try to limit the number of programs running while you record.

Record videos can be downloaded from Biteable as .mkv. You can convert them to MP4 to be used elsewhere.

We can't wait to see what you create! Reach out to support with any questions.
