Record your face & screen

Capture your screen to show users exactly what to do. Record your face to humanize your product. Our built-in teleprompter will help you nail your lines.

Polish it up with our editor

Fix mistakes, find your best takes, and stitch in clips with our easy-to-use editor. Then, up the production value with free intro-and-outro music.

Help users take that next step

Add annotation links and in-video CTAs that direct your viewers to related support articles, developer docs, and other resources.

Better support

Always relevant

Wistia’s analytics show you what content your viewers engage with most, so you can develop support materials that matter to your users.

Always accessible

With high-contrast colors, audio descriptions, and closed captions, videos made with Wistia are made to work for everyone.

3 ways to use video for customer support

Evergreen content

Instead of answering the same question again and again over email, make an FAQ video that’s relevant to your customers long after you record it.

Troubleshooting

With Wistia’s screen recorder, you can show users how to fix any hiccups right in your product’s UI. Translation? Tickets get resolved faster and customer satisfaction scores reach new highs.

Onboarding videos

Save time training employees and onboarding customers by recording videos they can watch on demand.

Frequently asked questions

  • How do I make a support video for free?

    Just sign up for a free account. You don’t need a credit card and there’s no downloading required. Simply grab a computer with a built-in webcam and get started.

  • Can support videos really enhance troubleshooting and docs pages?

    Absolutely! Support videos are great for visual and auditory learners. Plus, they’re better for breaking down complex tasks or issues than text-based articles. With video, users can see exactly what they need to click on or do to fix an issue, which reduces confusion and increases the likelihood of success. Support videos made with Wistia are also super accessible. We transcribe every video and offer closed captioning so anyone can watch and learn.


    One more thing — at Wistia, we’re all about humanizing Customer Support. Our screen-and-webcam recorder lets you capture your screen AND your face, which helps users feel like they’re connected to a person, rather than some corporate conglomerate.

  • How do I make a great support video?

    1. Clearly define your goal and make sure it addresses a common user problem or question.
    2. Keep the video’s length short and sweet.
    3. Invest in a good camera and mic for high-quality visuals and audio.
    4. Use screen recording to show users every step of the process.
    5. Polish it up. Wistia’s text-based editor transcribes your videos, so you can highlight and delete any gaffs in a jiffy.

    6. Make your video accessible with closed captioning and a transcript.
    7. Embed your video in your help center and post it on social media so everyone can find it.
