Kamcord surpasses 1 billion mobile gameplay recordings

San Francisco, California, August 22nd, 2013 – Kamcord, creators of an iOS SDK that lets users record and share actual videos of their mobile gameplays, announced that it has recorded over 1 billion gameplay videos. In June 2012, Kamcord was the first to release a solution that lets users record their mobile gaming sessions and share them to the various social networks. The Y Combinator startup has been growing rapidly since then. The Kamcord SDK is live in over 115 games on the Apple App Store and the company sees millions of videos being recorded daily.

The team of 9 in San Francisco has its sights set on recording 1 billion gameplay videos in a single day! In order to grow the team towards achieving that goal, Kamcord raised an additional $1M in funding from Tencent and Kai-Fu Lee’s Innovation Works. Kamcord had previously raised $1.5M in seed funding from Tencent, Andreessen Horowitz, Google Ventures, and others soon after it graduated from Y Combinator’s summer 2012 session.

Sample recorded game plays

Kamcord has released a number of features recently to make its gameplay video sharing and watching experience more social. The new Kamcord website will let users browse videos from the top Kamcord games and discover cool new games. The Kamcord SDK now lets users create profiles and like videos. The ability to comment on videos and subscribe to the top gamers in the world is coming in the next couple weeks. The new Kamcord SDK also contains what the company calls an “infinite playlist” – a playlist of the very best videos from that game compiled in one place. All these social features are aimed at bringing users back to the game daily.
