Video Message Collection
August 16, 2015 10:15 AM   Subscribe

I'm wondering if there's a service that provides an easy way to collect video messages. I'd imagine it working like this: I send some people a link to and then they click "record" to record from their webcams. Then I can log in and play all the videos. Does something like that exist?

You can do this with youtube. You'd have to have a shared account/password but youtube supports video capture straight from a webcam. You can set the channel to private so no one else can see it.

but wouldn't each member be able to see all messages in that case? OP sounds like they are looking for something more like a video answering/recording service (cf phone recorders).

does this do what you want? there's a free "basic" version that seems to do a kind of skype answering service with, i think, video. it's not a web site, though - instead people would skype you.

Oh, yeah, in that case it wouldn't be good. Everyone could see all the messages. I read this as more of a fun thing, like everybody submit a celebratory video message for Karen and Doug's wedding, where it wouldn't matter if other folks saw them.

You can do this straight out of Skype. Give the people your Skype handle then they right click your contact and click "Send Video Message."
