Once you are done recording and are ready to save and share your video, click Save video. You will see a progress bar letting you know once your video has successfully uploaded to mmhmm.


Once your video has finished uploading, it will open a new video player window. Here, give your video a title, choose your videos privacy settings, or edit any of the other settings related to your video. You may also share a link to the video or add your video to an mmhmm channel by clicking Share. 



Use takes in mmhmm Studio

Note: The takes feature is currently only available in mmhmm Studio.

With takes, you can redo recordings on a slide-by-slide basis instead of re-recording your entire presentation. During a recording session, mmhmm will automatically generate a take for each slide. An icon will appear next to the slide name to show that a take was recorded for that slide.


Tip: Start a new recording session if you want to re-record any of your slides or redo the take. There is no limit to the number of takes you can record.

To choose which take you’d like to use in the final presentation, select that take from the dropdown on the right side of the mode bar.


You can also select Manage Takes to see a preview of each take and select which one you’d like to use in your final presentation.


CopyRename, or Delete any of the takes listed on that slide by clicking on the ellipsis ... next to your desired take. 


You can also upload a video slide and set it as an "original video" so that when you playback your mmhmm presentation, the slide looks like it was recorded natively in mmhmm instead of a slide behind you:
