Share

Sharing clips is the best way to give your team feedback.

Once you have created and uploaded your clip to your Project, sharing your clip can be achieved by navigating to your Project, selecting the clip you wish to share, and clicking the Share button.

(Note: you can always access your Project by clicking the Dashcam logo in the top left of the app)

You can determine whether or not to share the clip publicly using the Share Publicly toggle.

If you set the Share Publicly toggle to the off position, users will see this message when they try and access the URL of the clip:

This allows you to keep videos you do not wish to share from being available.

The Share dropdown allows you to generate a link to your Dashcam clip or automatically generate code for you as HTML, markdown, or embed.

The HTML and markdown code will render an animated GIF that shows frames from the Dashcam clip. This image is embedded with a link that will take the user to a web page, allowing them to watch the video.

The HTML and markdown options are suitable for when you do not have the opportunity to embed video in source code or do not want to use an iframe. The markdown code is handy for platforms like GitHub, Jekyll, or ReadMe that use markdown natively.

The "Copy Embed Code" option provides an HTML code for an iframe that allows the video to be directly played within the page where you paste the embed code.

Embedding a Dashcam clip in a GitHub Readme

To embed a clip in a GitHub ReadMe, find your clip in your Project and click the Share button. Select the "Copy Markdown" option.

Markdown code that looks as follows will be copied to your clipboard:
