Record a video
In a web browser, navigate to the mmhmm home page and click Launch mmhmm on the top right-hand side of the window. This will open a recording session in a new tab. Alternatively, open mmhmm if you have it installed on your machine.
Click the red Record button to start your recording. mmhmm will ask you to sign into your account if you have not done so already. Your recording will start after a three second countdown. During this time, you can click the Stop button to cancel the recording process altogether.
Tip: Multiple people can record at the same time.
|Discard all||Delete and remove your recorded video. Clicking this button will prompt you to confirm your choice.|
|Continue recording||Resume recording. You recording will resume after a three second countdown.|
|Save video||Save and share your recording to mmhmm.|
Note: If you reach your account record limit for the month, the record button will be grayed out. Please upgrade your account to record past the monthly limit.
Click the red Record button in the middle of the mode bar to start recording a take. Once the countdown finishes, mmhmm will begin recording. Click the button again to stop your recording session. The take will then sync to the cloud.
During recording, if you dislike your take, click on the X next to the red Stop button to discard it.
Then, click Discard in the pop-up window to delete your take.
Trim your recording
To delete the parts of your recording you don't want, click and drag the section above the progress bar to highlight the unwanted part of the recording. Then, click Delete to delete it. Optionally, you may click Undo if you made a mistake.
When you're satisfied with your edit, you can click Continue recording to continue or click Save video to finish your recording and share it to mmhmm.
Click the Takes drop down and select Manage Takes... to see a preview of your recording.
Then, select Fade out or Trim take. Both options help to ensure your transitions are smooth from one take to another. Click Trim take to start the trimming process. Click and drag each end of video slider to select the portion of your recording you want to keep. Then click the blue Trim button to apply your trim.
Review your recording
A new window will appear where you can press the Play button to review your recorded video. If you need to make any changes, you can always trim your recording or click Discard all and rerecord your video.
Once you have recorded your presentation, use Playback mode to view your presentation in its entirety. Choose Snappy, Turbo, or Max speed to make this step faster. Of course, if you need to make any changes, you can always stop Playback to go back to Edit mode and make adjustments to your video.
Playback mode allows you to mix pre-recorded and live content within a single presentation. For example, pre-record a sales pitch or class lecture, then insert a LIVE slide to switch to live Q&A at the appropriate points. A LIVE slide is any slide for which you have not recorded any Takes (or where you’ve selected None / Live video in the Manage Takes window.)
Save and share your video
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.
- Share it with your organization (available to mmhmm for Teams users only).
- Create a link to share it publicly.
- Share it with specific people via email.
- Export your recording to your computer as an MP4.
Give your video a title and description, and choose a thumbnail photo by using the slider under the thumbnail preview to select one.
Select your target audience in the privacy dropdown on the right-hand side of the window.
Add your video to an mmhmm channel you've joined by clicking the desired channel.
Click Publish to upload your video to mmhmm and share it with your audience.
Once your video has been published, you can copy the link to it to share with others by clicking Copy link. You can view it yourself by clicking View in browser. You can also share your video on Twitter, LinkedIn, or Facebook by clicking on their respective icons. Selecting Edit settings will allow you to make changes to your published video as outlined above.
If you want to see the last time you shared your video, click on Share in the mode bar. The dropdown will show you the last published date and time.
Use takes 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.
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.
Copy, Rename, 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:
|Video slide over your shoulder||Original video|
