How do I record?
- Set up your recorder
Choose between the Desktop App to record on Mac or Windows, or use our Chrome Screen Recorder. The Desktop App has some additional features, but both will produce a great result. We also have an Android Screen Recorder and an iOS Screen Recorder. You can check here to make sure your device is compatible with Loom, and a strong upload speed (at least 5mbps) ensures successful video processing.
Need help choosing?
- Record your first video
Choose your capture mode:
· Screen + cam: make your screen recording personal
· Cam only: record just your face
· Screen only: record your screen with audio only
How do I share my video?
- Copy and paste the video link anywhere
Think of it as sharing the link of a news article or YouTube video. You can paste the link anywhere and anyone can click on the link to watch it.
- Who can I share it with?
Share this link with your students, teachers, or colleagues. The folks who view your videos do not need their own Loom account to watch it.
Who can view my video?
Only people who you share your video link with can see your video. Your videos are not searchable in online search engines, unless you enable that option.
If you'd like to add an extra layer of security you can password protect your videos: here's how to do that. If you'd like to read more about how deeply the creators of Loom value your security and privacy please take a look at the following help article.
How do I see who viewed my video?
To identify who watched your video, they will need to have a Loom account and be logged in while watching. Otherwise, it'll show up as an Anonymous view. Learn more here.
