What if you could record your mobile gameplays without hassle and upload those videos onto your favorite social networks? Well, you can! Kamcord is a San Francisco-based iOS SDK which allows users to record and share actual videos of their mobile gameplays. It also announced today that it will be releasing an Android solution for game developers to integrate with their titles.
Aditya Rathnam, co-founder of Kamcord shared with e27 that while they are taking a global approach to this new launch, Asia remains an important region for them. He also added that there is a bigger market in Asia when it comes to Android devices, especially in Japan and China.
One thing to note is that Kamcord raised US$1 million in funding from Tencent and Kai-Fu Lee’s Innovation Works last month. Furthermore, they have previously raised money from Tencent, Digital Garage and netprice.com in Japan. According to the press release, these ties to Asian investors will be a significant part of Kamcord’s partnership efforts with Asian game developers and social networks.
Last month, Kamcord also announced that it has recorded over one billion mobile gameplays. Today, the one-year-old startup shared that it has surpassed the one million video shares mark. One of the apps with Kamcord integrated is Pivvot, a hit-game featured on the iOS App Store. Aditya said,
“Having a million videos on our servers gives us a lot of epic gameplay content to pick from when deciding what videos to show in the Kamcord SDK as well as on our website. This along with the newly rolled out social features such as likes, comments, and user profiles allows us to start building a rich community around gameplay video.”
