In the past few months we’ve been hard at work improving Pipe and adding new features but at the same time we also worked on an integration with WordPress that would allow webmasters to take advantage of Pipe’s awesome video recording capabilities.

The new Pipe Video Recorder Plugin for WordPress is now available for free on WordPress.org.

Here are a few examples of things you can do with the Pipe plugin:

  • Create video posts
  • Capture user-submitted videos and later embed them in posts/pages
  • E-recruiting: accept video resumes for job candidates
  • WordPress vlog: transfor any WordPress website into a Vlog
  • Video reviews for products, services or events
  • Video feedback for blog posts
  • Pretty much anything you can think of that involves video recording

Let me walk you through a quick installation and setup of the plugin.

  1. Download the plugin from the official WordPress.org page and install it on your WordPress website
  2. Go to the new Pipe Video Recorder entry in your admin sidebar and choose Settings

  1. The next thing you want to do is insert your account hash, which you can find in your Account Settings at addpipe.com. Now go to the My Account section and click on the Webhook tab at the top. In the Webhook URL field type the address of your WordPress installation. In this case it’s https://blog.addpipe.com/ – just change it to match your scenario. Important: make sure the URL ends with a trailing slash “/”!

If you don’t already have a Pipe account you can request an invite here.
