How long does it take to make a Group Video?
  • Setting up your Group Video: About 1 minute
  • Recording/submitting a video clip: About 1 to 3 minutes
  • Receiving all video clips: Depends on how quickly invitees respond. We find that most organizers give submitters up to 7 days
  • Group video creation: About 2x total submitted video clip duration (e.g. 10-minutes of video clips will take about 20 minutes to become a ready-to-share Group Video)
How long can my Group Video be?

Your Group Video can contain as many video clips as you need and up to 60 minutes of content.

As a best practice, we find that the most entertaining individual video clips are usually between 10 and 60 seconds in length. Only in exceptional cases should participants speak for longer than a few minutes.

How do I invite people to record a video clip?

When you've setup your Group Video, you'll arrive at the Invite Contributors page. You can add email addresses or mobile numbers manually, or import contact lists. You may also choose to share your unique Record & Upload link using any of your preferred messaging platforms (Facebook, Messenger, WhatsApp, etc.). Spread the word in whatever way works best for you!

How do invitees record their video clips?

When your invited contributors click on the link that you send to them and create a (free) sign-in, they'll reach your Record & Submit Page. There, they'll see a description of your Group Video (including a photo if you've uploaded one). They can then click to either record a video clip using a webcam or mobile phone or submit a previously recorded video clip on the same page. Invitees may also choose to download the iOS App to record their clip. The process is fun and takes just a few moments!

Who gets to see my Group Video? Is it public?

Both the individual video clips and the final Group Video are private by default. When it comes to sharing, you are in total control.

During the video clip collection process, you may choose to make your favorite recorded video clips visible on the recording page as inspiration to others. When the final group video is ready, you are given a unique viewing link to share with the intended recipient and, at your discretion, with others who are interested in watching.

If you're interested in sharing your Group Video publicly, we are always looking for additional content for our website and social media channels. To share your content with Memento, please Contact Us.

Can I download my Group Video?

Yes. You can view your completed Group Video via the link we provide, and with a Platinum Subscription, you can download your Group Video as an MP4 video file.
