Hippo Video now provides you with a dominant feature to collaborate with your video users and viewers through comments. Comments help you and your viewers to respond to the videos quickly. You can improve your video success rate through continuous engagement with your audience. And, through comments you will be able to know your viewers likes and dislikes.

Don’t worry!! Your viewers needn’t have to sign up for Hippo Video to comment. We allow guest comments. So, anyone who can view your video will be able to comment.


Types of comments we offer:

If you’re done with the same old text comments, then pay attention to what we are going to offer.


It’s video comments.


To communicate through video comments, all your viewers can do is select inputs, record, and post. It’s way easier than typing text, isn’t it?


Where can I find the comments?

Comments for your videos will be available below the video preview along with the video information where you can have access to all the comments for that particular video.

Both you and your viewers have an option to add comments at a specific time.

For instance, if your viewer liked a particular clip in your video, he/she can tap on the video timeline or the buffer bar at the point of time they’d like to comment.

Admin or the video owner will be able to hide/unhide specific comments from being displayed to others.
