New in Rewatch

New features, fixes, and improvements.
Follow us on Twitter to stay updated on everything we're building.

Share portions of your video with clips

Today we are introducing Clips, a new tool for sharing and organizing your video content. With clips, you can select specific moments from your video in order to share with others, initiate a side conversation, or add to a collection.

Want to share a portion of a private meeting with your team? Need to discuss a moment with only a few members of your channel? It’s now possible. And, the actions you take on the clip – publishing, commenting, even deleting – won’t affect the original video.

Here are a few ways we’ve been using clips at Rewatch:

Share a moment, and keep everything else private. There are times when a private video includes a moment that would be nice to share with others. Now you can create a clip to share with the team, while still keeping the rest of the video private.

Focus the conversation. For moments that require deeper discussion, using a clip can be an effective way to foster a focused, in-depth conversation. This works great when a team needs to collaborate on a single idea or topic, as well as way of providing targeted feedback on a sales call or customer interview.

Compile a topical video repository. Clips are a great tool for building a curated, topic-based collection of content. Whether it's customer success stories, sales calls strategies, or anything else, clips let you isolate relevant moments to keep your collection focused and easy to navigate.

Learn more about using Clips in our help center.

  • Fixed an issue where the "link only" option in the link access dropdown wasn't enabled when videos were private

Desktop Camera Recorder

We have added the ability to record via your device's camera using our Mac desktop recorder (a Windows update is on the way). This change makes it easier than ever to create quick video updates and messages on Rewatch. This is especially handy if your team is using a Series to replace stand-ups and other repetitive status meetings.

As always, you can also use the desktop app to record your screen, create a quick canvas presentation, or record a GIF. Download the Rewatch desktop app today!

Images in Comment Threads

It's been said that a picture is worth a thousand words. If so, consider this another way Rewatch is helping to save your team time: it's now possible to add images – even GIFs! – in comments. This is something that we've wanted for a while, and we're happy to say goodbye to the days of halting a thread once it requires something visual.

Other fixes and improvements

  • Added a default title to transcript highlights
  • Added a message to the video page to indicate when a video fails to upload properly

Hubspot and Salesforce Integrations

Good news if you spend a lot of time bouncing between your calendar, Rewatch, and your CRM software: Rewatch now offers integrations with both Hubspot and Salesforce. With these enabled, Rewatch will create a Hubspot/Salesforce event when it finds a meeting on your calendar that includes a contact from your CRM.

To enable this feature, have your channel admin connect your CRM software via the Integrations tab in the Rewatch admin console.

  • Fixed a bug where using the spacebar was causing the series play to act abnormally

Download videos for offline viewing

Just in time for the holiday travel season, our mobile apps now give you the option to download videos so you can watch them even without an internet connection.

The Rewatch app for iOS and Android now supports offline viewing for all videos. Simply navigate to the video, and select “Save for offline” from the ellipsis menu in the top right corner to download your video.

All of your “saved for offline” videos can all be found in the new and improved “Me” tab, along with your video uploads, likes, and recent watching history.

Don't have the Rewatch mobile app yet? Head to the Apple App Store or Google Play Store and download it today.

Collaborating without a meeting is easier than ever with Series

Series are a new way for you to stay connected with your team, wherever you work. Record quick videos to share what you’re up to—and let your team catch up on their own time and schedule.

A series is a collaborative space where team members can share updates on a specific project, task, or topic. We think they’re great for replacing those “status update” meetings (like a daily standup), as well as bringing your team together, even if you’re remote, or not always in the same space at the same time. Series enables teams to spend less time scheduling and attending meetings, and makes it easier to stay on top of the things you care most about.

Here’s a look at what we’ve added:

  • Recent Highlights series: If your channel has any video highlights, you’ll notice a new series called “Recent Highlights”. We’ve compiled highlights from all videos into a single viewing experience, with full commenting and sharing capabilities.
  • Creating a custom series: Creating a series for your team is easy – simply give it a title and decide who can contribute (or leave it open for the whole channel to add to). For status updates and other recurring events, you can even add reminders that notify contributors when it’s time to add a video.
  • Tools for creating and recording: Our desktop screen recorder and mobile apps are now equipped with new tools for sharing your work and ideas. Now, alongside recording a video and or capturing your screen, you can create quick, custom, slide presentations to share with your team.
  • View, comment, and share: The series viewer compiles videos from the team into a single, immersive experience (but with the same transcript and commenting capabilities you’ve grown accustomed to). Add in indicators for “unwatched” videos, and catching up with your teammates is quicker than ever before.

Read why we built series on our blog, or learn more about using series in the help center.

Pin your favorite collections to your sidebar for easy access

We've made it even easier for you to quickly access the videos you need for work. You can now pin specific collections to your sidebar by adding them to your favorites.

To get started, simply click the star (⭐) button next to the title of the collection. A new section will appear in your sidebar after you favorite your first collection.

Subscribe to keywords and get notified when they're mentioned

Looking for an easier way to stay on top of conversations you care about? Good news—you can now subscribe to keywords and get notified whenever they're mentioned in a video.

When you subscribe to a keyword, you'll receive a notification in the app and, depending on your notification preferences, by email and/or mobile push.

Here are some keywords you might subscribe to:

  • Your name: Hey, who doesn't want to know when they're mentioned? 😄
  • Your team's name: Know when your team comes up in conversation.
  • Project terms: Working on "pricing"? Get notified whenever it gets discussed.

Learn more about subscriptions in our help center.

Give context to your work by recording and sharing GIFs with your team

You can now use our screen recorder to record and share GIFs. GIFs are a great way for you to add visual context and get your message across quickly and clearly.

Here are a couple of ideas for how you can use GIFs:

  • Capture a bug, demo a new feature, or present a UI interaction.
  • Show customers exactly how to use your product.
  • Present creative work and communicate design feedback.

Once a GIF has been recorded, you can choose to save it locally or upload it to your library in Rewatch before sharing it with your team.

To help you identify who performed what action and when, each event in the audit log includes the person’s name, IP address, and timestamp.

To access the audit log for your channel, visit the Admin Console.

Learn more about audit logs in our help center.

Assign members to groups when you invite them to your channel

Now when you add new members to your channel, you can assign them to groups before sending the invite. Assigning members to groups makes it easy to manage access to videos and notify members about new videos that are relevant to them.

You can use groups to automatically subscribe members to specific collections, control which members can create top-level collections, and give multiple members access to private videos and collections all at once.

  • Before you leave a comment, you can see who is subscribed to the thread and will receive a notification.
  • You can subscribe and unsubscribe to threads and manage which conversations are most important to you.

Make your videos easy to navigate with chapters

Sharing a company all-hands or distributing a training session? Now you can make it even easier for your team to navigate long videos and find what they need with chapters.

Chapters allow you to organize your videos into digestible segments. By adding chapters, your team can get a quick overview of the topics being covered in the video and instantly jump to the segments they care about.

When you add chapters to your video, markers will be added to the video's progress bar, in the chapter menu on the video player, and in the transcript. You can also link directly to specific chapters in your video, so it's easier to share key information with your team.

Learn more about chapters here.

a modal within the Rewatch app where users can invite viewers

Restrict sharing to specific people outside your team

Sometimes, you need to share sensitive information with people outside your team, such as customers, partners, or contractors. Now, customers on the Enterprise plan can securely share videos with individuals who are not members of their Rewatch channel.

When you invite an external viewer to your video, a secure link will be sent to their email address. External viewers will not be able to see comments on the video, just the video, transcript, and any highlights. You can revoke access at any time.

In the admin console, admins can track which videos have been shared, restrict the ability to invite external viewers to just admins, and enable or disable external sharing for their entire channel.

Customers on all plans will continue to have the option to share videos publicly to the web, which allows anyone with the link to view a video.

Learn more about securely sharing videos with people outside your team.

Admins have the flexibility to set policies globally or by collection. By default, Rewatch will retain all videos unless they are manually deleted by a member of your channel.

Learn more about how retention policies work.

Transcripts are easier to read with our updated video page

Transcripts allow you to quickly catch up on important information in your team's videos. We've updated the video page to make transcripts in Rewatch even easier to read and give you more options to read, watch, or do both at the same time.

Now, when you're scrolling through a transcript, the video player will appear to the side instead of above the transcript, so you have more room to read. You also have a new option to collapse the video player and focus on just the transcript.

Prefer to watch the video instead, or want to read and watch? Hit "play" at the top of the page to just watch the video, or start playing the video at any time by clicking the timestamp to the right of the transcript.

Learn more about how permissions work in Rewatch.

The Rewatch App's search page

Filter search results by collection or participants

Now you can narrow and customize your search results with filters and find the information you need faster. You can filter by a specific collection, videos with a specific participant, or a combination of the two. When you start a new search from a specific collection or on a participant's page, we'll automatically apply a filter to narrow down your results.

We've also added the ability to sort your search results, so you can prioritize newest or oldest videos.

A modal with Rewatch's embed settings

More flexible permissions for embedding videos in your favorite tools

With embeds, you can add Rewatch videos wherever your team needs to see them. If you're updating your internal wiki, you can easily share the latest All-Hands. Or, if you're working on an issue in GitHub, you can reference decisions made in a recent meeting.

We've made our embed permissions more flexible, so it's even easier for your team to share just the right context. For new channels, video embeds are now enabled by default. This means your team no longer has to ask an admin for every video they want to embed.

We've also made it simpler for admins to manage who can create and watch embedded videos and where they can be embedded.

Learn more about embedding videos.

A modal with Rewatch's video sharing information

Share videos with people outside your team

We know that getting work done can involve a lot of people, both on your team and outside of it. Now, in Rewatch, you have the option to share your videos externally – whether that’s with customers, strategic partners, or freelancers and agencies who support your team.

You and any admins can share your videos to the web. Once a video has been shared, anyone with the link can watch the video and read the transcript. You can turn off sharing at any time.

Need a little bit more security? You can restrict the ability to share publicly to just admins or turn off sharing entirely. Admins can also see and track every video that’s been shared from your channel, right in the admin console.

Learn more about sharing videos to the web.
