One Click Recording
Simply click the HYFY button to capture your screen & voice.
Click again and you are ready to share.
HYFY handles all the encoding, saving, uploading and storage
80% fewer clicks
than other screen capture tools
Lots of screen capture tools record videos well enough, but then you are on your own when it’s time to share.
Stop dealing with storage and transfers and post-processing of giant video files.
HYFY handles everything for you so that sharing is so easy, you’ll want to do it all day long.
Show and tell. Fast and easy!
Keep Videos Private
With HYFY Business, you can restrict access to videos with sensitive content.
Limit sharing to individual email addresses, email domains, JIRA / Service Desk domains, HipChat groups or Slack teams
HYFY help you keep
your content safe!
Screenshots and text just don’t cut it.
If a picture is worth a thousand words, a video is worth a million. Video with mouse capture is the easiest way to point directly to what you’re seeing while moving through all facets of an issue. Verbalizing an issue avoids delays associated with word-smithing, overly formal language or “writing it up later.” It also improves clarity for teams with language barriers.
Stop typing so much.
Fast to create, easy to view.
HYFY is simply the fastest way to capture video and audio, but can your team actually view it? HYFY videos can be viewed by your teammates from anywhere, on any platform—desktop PCs, mobile phones, tablets...you name it.
It just works.
Designed for teams of professionals.
Professionals need to save time but they also require their content to be secure. That’s why HYFY lets you pick who can view your videos. You choose the Slack teams, JIRA domains, HipChat groups and email names/domains that get access. Or you can make it public and let it fly!
It’s ready for your team.
See how HYFY compares to other tools
HYFY is so much more than screen capture. Here’s a few things to consider:
|HYFY||The Other Guys|
|Recording||One click and go. No settings to configure.||Settings screens with dozens of options to configure.|
|Video Files||Videos are encoded and uploaded to the cloud immediately.||Large video files on your computer or uploads to YouTube or Vimeo that require separate accounts.|
|Sharing||Video link is immediately ready to preview, paste or share.||Spend a long time waiting for your video to be processed and ready to view. Then you’re on your own to figure out how to transfer a large file.|
|Privacy||Restrict access to individual emails, email domains, Slack, JIRA, HipChat teams||Videos are public or viewers must have an account.|
|Team Tools||Use HYFY direct integrations with JIRA, HipChat or Slack. Or simply copy/paste a link into any tool.||Few support all of JIRA, HipChat and Slack directly.|
|Viewing||View HYFY videos anywhere, including mobile devices with nothing to install. HYFY automatically transcodes for optimal viewing.||Many use Flash - popular browsers are blocking it now and support is in decline.|
|Platform||HYFY works anywhere you can run the Google Chrome browser, including Chromebooks.||Many apps are Mac-only or PC-only. Very few work on Chromebooks at all.|

Why do I have to pay for HYFY PRO/BUSINESS?
Hey, we gotta eat too! Seriously, we do everything we can to keep the cost of HYFY very low for our users, but we need to cover the costs of our storage and server infrastructure and fund future development.
Can I download a HYFY video locally?
We don't currently support downloading HYFY videos, but we are working on a version of this feature as we speak.
Can I upload a HYFY video to YouTube?
We don't yet officially support uploading to YouTube, but there is an easy workaround. When viewing a HYFY video, just right-click on the video itself and select "Save Video As..." - this will let you save the video as a .webm file. You should be able to upload that file to YouTube without any trouble.
Does HYFY record without my knowledge?
No — HYFY will NEVER record your browser, screen or voice unless and until you ask us to do so.
Are my HYFY videos public?
With HYFY FREE and PRO, the links/URLs generated for HYFY videos can be viewed by anyone. The videos themselves are not available to be indexed by search engines. Upgrade to HYFY BUSINESS to unlock the ability to set video privacy.
