loomSDK FAQ

Bring Loom straight to your work app. 👩‍💻

With the loomSDK, developers can add screen and cam recording to their own products – all for free. 

What is loomSDK?

LoomSDK enables your users to record, embed, view, and interact with Loom videos directly within web apps – adding clarity and context to any workflow. Check out our loomSDK page to see how Trello, InVision, and more are using LoomSDK.

How do I access the loomSDK?

You can set up a developer account for loomSDK here

How hard is it to implement?

Implementation is easy and fast! You'll just need to add a few lines of code to your platform to get the record button set up. Set up should take a day and all the steps to get started can be found on our Developer page.

Is it free?

Yes, we currently offer a free version, loomSDK Standard, which provides:

  • 5 recordings per Guest user
  • 5-min long Guest recordings
  • Standard Loom UI configuration

Once a guest user has reached 5 recordings they will be prompted to sign up for our free Starter plan so they can continue recording with Loom and access and organize all of their videos in the Loom Workspace.

We also have loomSDK Custom which provides unlimited guest recordings, custom UI configuration, and managed authentication. If interested please reach out to our Sales team.

What recording capabilities will loomSDK provide?

RecordSDK provides a similar recording experience as Loom's Chrome extension and allows you to record in Screen only, Cam only, and Screen+Cam. You will also be able to choose different modes of sharing: an entire window, an application, or a single browser tab.

⚠️ Our recordSDK will not be able to capture internal audio or record guest users Camera bubble across browser tabs. We hope to add these capabilities soon!

What browser is loomSDK compatible with?

RecordSDK currently supports the following browsers:

  • Google Chrome v90+
  • Microsoft Edge v90+
  • Brave v1.22+

We plan to support more browsers such as Firefox soon! For more information on browser compatibility please check out our SDK page here.

Where are videos stored when someone records via LoomSDK?

If a user is logged into their Loom account then the video will be stored in their default workspace. If a guest user records the video will be stored in a special workspace specific to the API Key.

Is there a max limit on recordings per (API) application?

As of right now, there is no max limit on the number of recordings an API application may have.
