How does the process work?

Getting Started

You can start a video by answering a few questions:

  • What's the occasion? 
  • Who's it for? 

This creates an Event Page that will be used to collect media. Only you (the video creator) can access this Event Page.

Here's a great introduction video to get you started:

What makes a VidDay so unique is seeing video messages and old photos from all your friends and family. So let's start by inviting them.

Inviting People to Submit

Go to your Event Page > Invitation and scroll down to customize your private submission page. Then, you can start inviting people. For more about invitation features, click here.

At the top of the Invitation page, you'll see your unique event link. This link will bring people to the submission page to submit their videos and photos.

Your invite link will look similar to this:

Share your invite link by text message, email, or with your favorite messaging apps like WhatsApp and Messenger.

Invited people can not preview other submissions, they can only upload.

When you're logged in to your VidDay account, you can see media appear on your Event Page as they get uploaded.

Customizing Your Video

You can edit submitted media if needed by double-clicking on them, click-and-drag them in your order of preference, and adding little written messages throughout the video if you want.

You can also choose a video theme and background music that you think the recipient would like the most.

If you want to see your video prior to finalizing. Press on Preview. To start a preview, click on Make a Preview

Previews typically take 5-30 minutes to finalize and we'll email you when it's ready to go.

Finalizing the Video

Click the Finalize button, followed by Checkout & Finalize, make your payment, and VidDay creates a beautiful video for you. It's that easy.

The time it takes to finalize a video depends on its length. When your video is ready, you’ll be notified by email, and the final video will appear on the Event Page.

Sharing the Video

You can share the video by sharing the link. Click here for a deeper dive into sharing the video.
