Heyo Product Hunt! 😀 First of all, thank you @hnshah for not only hunting Openvid 2.0, but also being super generous with your time & feedback over the last few months that is now being shipped as the 2.0 product! 👏🏻 @joethomas_x, @vhmth, and I launched Openvid a little over three months ago (100 days to be exact 🎈) and witnessed resoundingly positive feedback from all of you! Fast forward to today, we have over 12,800+ employees from leading companies such as: Uber, Dropbox, Zendesk, Salesforce, Intercom, and others using Openvid to communicate more effectively in the workplace. Openvid is the fastest way for you to share knowledge and collaborate more easily––through video. The seamless experience makes it perfect for: - Walking a co-worker through a project - Bug tracking/QA (both web & mobile) - Personalized sales demos - Customer support - + many other use cases! Openvid let’s you do all that (+ more) for free without having to worry about video storage, upload time, or recording time limits. With this new update, you can now: - Record your entire desktop (not just limited to the tab anymore!) - Front facing camera recordings - Record with a single-click and your videos immediately get uploaded and you are given a shareable URL that you can send out in an email, Slack, Hipchat, etc. Ask us anything! 💬

@poolnoodle93 @_shahedk hey there Saarim! We don't currently do live streaming from our tool, but you can certainly use it to record live streams! I do it all the time for Skype meetings. :-)

It's been fun to watch Shahed and the team release and iterate this product. They've got a friction-less experience that makes many different common tasks much more seamless to do right from your Chrome browser. Pretty slick, a must try for any one wanting to learn how they do it. And as a bonus, I'm sure you'll find the product quite useful too!

@_shahedk @vhmth Really really happy to see this product evolve over time and excited about the new release. I've really loved using OpenTest for Commaful for a few things: - customer service (when people ask how to do certain things) - demos sharing what Commaful is - asking users for feedback on new features I've tried a bunch of recording services. This is by far the easiest and most powerful. I love being able to send the link immediately without having to upload to YouTube or anything. BOOM! Congrats guys. Awesome product

Awesome to see you guys back on Product Hunt! Openvid has saved us tons of time with our clients over the past couple months. We started using it as a personalized way to welcome them to the company, walk them through their social metrics, and visually explain their options for advertising. Great to see it progress to 2.0!

Love the evolution. From the current user base, what's the single largest use case?

@varunkhona We've been seeing a lot of back and forth communication amongst remote/local employees at work. What used to be a ton of back and forth emails and skype/hangouts sessions has now boiled down to a single asynchronous video detailing everything you need to send over (project materials, time-sensitive info, etc) to another employee half way across the world. That employee can then respond with a few sentences when it's most convenient for them. Given you're headquartered in India, you should give it a spin and let me know what you think. Keep me in the loop if you have any questions/comments. You have my direct line ;)
