We strive to make it as easy as possible to create a group video with Memento. Here are the answers to some of your most common questions!
Once unlocked, 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.
When you create your group video, you are given a unique Record & Upload link. You invite your friends to join your group video by sending them that unique link using any of your preferred messaging platforms (e-mail, SMS, Facebook, etc.). Spread the word in whatever way works best for you!
When your invited contributors click on the link that you send to them, 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 don't need to register or install an app to submit their video clips. The process is fun and takes just a few moments!
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.

Paying for a group video is like buying a greeting card. You purchase a group video for each special occasion or celebration. Each payment is a one time fee, non-recurring/not a subscription.
