Audio and Video


Video editing is a feature for our Pro, Growth, and Enterprise plans.

How can I edit videos?

On our Growth plan, you can seek, trim, and control the speed of any video.

You can also edit any video on your desktop (and use another app to add pan and zoom, blur, or any other specific edits) and then upload that video to Arcade.

Can I add a hotspot in a video? How does video splitting work?

Video editing is a feature for our Pro, Growth, and Enterprise plans.

You can't add a hotspot in a moving video, but you can use video splitting to split your video into an interactive demo.

Video splitting works by allowing you to select points in a longer video to break. When you create the video break, we automatically add in a screenshot of the video frame at that point and add a hotspot to that screenshot. This allows you to turn any recording — a desktop app, a mobile app, etc. — into an interactive Arcade.


Can I add sound to my Arcades?

Can I upload a video with sound to Arcade?

Video steps with sound

If you upload a video with sound to your Arcade, the Arcade viewer will play the video with the sound.

Background music

You can play background music throughout your Arcade by attaching an MP3 file inside the design settings panel in the editor:

Synthetic Voiceovers

Generating high-quality voiceovers can be a difficult and time-consuming task. However, with Arcade, you can effortlessly produce synthetic voiceovers that sound both professional and natural simply by inputting your script.

You can add voiceovers to chapters and image steps to provide clear and concise explanations, improving the user experience.

Arcade's synthetic voiceovers support 29 languages with several accents for languages like Portugues, Spanish, and others.
