Being organized saves you time and frustration. That is why we created a user friendly video library so you have easy access to every video, no matter when or by whom it was recorded. You no longer need to scroll through your phone's camera roll, full of personal photos and videos to find what you're looking for. In fact, we've made the library searchable, so scrolling through hundreds of images and videos is nearly obsolete. Give your thumbs a rest!
The OnForm video library is where all your videos that you've captured or that have been shared to you by a client are all located in one single place. By default, if you record a new video in the library, it's private and only you can see it. You can long-press any video and share it to a client at any time. We provide quick filters to show all videos that are simply "Private to me" as well as an "All videos" option to see everything.
Videos are automatically synced to the cloud and across all of your devices eliminating the need for manual storage management. Space on your device is smartly managed to always give you room to record as many videos as you need.
Labeling and Searching Videos
OnForm has made searching for specific videos easier than ever. All videos that are shared between athlete and coach or are private to the user, are organized chronologically with the newest videos at the top. For improved searching, we recommend that you title your videos with brief descriptions. Anytime you need to find it, just type the key words you're looking for into the search bar at the top of the library page.
Below we show you how to title and search for your videos in the OnForm app.
OnForm makes it easy to share the videos you've taken with other people using OnForm. You can easily share a video privately, or to an "everyone" channel for a team that you might manage. Or, if you choose to "share externally" via email, text or perhaps to social media, as shown in the image below, you'll be promoted with those options as well.
A video is worth a thousand words. But what about a video with a voice over it, offering up helpful advice on technique? That’s worth a whole lot more, which is exactly why OnForm has a voiceover recording feature on our app. The voice over feature easily allows online coaches to provide direct feedback to their athletes and clients.
You can easily re-record over any video that is sent in a chat or one that is stored on your library. Here is an easy to follow step by step guide to show you how to easily record your message over a video.
Tap on any video in your chat or your video library. Or as highlighted by the green circles below, you can also import a video from your phone’s library or record a new video.
After you've selected, imported, or recored a new video into OnForm, the video will be loaded onto your screen. This is where you can easily edit the video, draw on it, or record your recommendations and observations over the video. Simply tap microphone symbol at the top of the screen to get started.
After you press the microphone, you might be prompted to "Allow screen recording in 'OnForm'?" You should select the first option, Record Screen & Microphone if you intend to add comments via audio.
A red bar will appear at the top of the screen. It's time to leave your comments, you're now recording. You can hit pause on the far left side if you need to stop. You'll see a timer on the far right side of the red bar. That's just letting you know how long you've been recording. You can use the pencil icon under the time to draw over the video. When you are finished, simply press the "Stop" button in the middle of the red bar.
After you've pressed stop, you're all set. You can save the video and upload it back to the chat so your coach or athlete can see your suggestions and hear your comments. If you need to edit the video, simply use the scissor icon. If you need to start over, just discard your edits. If you are satisfied with your comments, simply save the video and it will be saved to your library or sent to the chat.
