Some pros about Soapbox

  1. It is free
  2. Easy to install browser extension
  3. Able to adjust video quality through framerate and bitrate settings
  4. Ability to trim the video - the start and end only at the moment
  5. Able to switch from webcam alone, to screen alone, to both webcam and screen

Some cons about Soapbox

  1. Videos are hosted by Wistia
  2. Can’t download the videos at the moment
  3. Only simple edits, you can’t join another video clip or cut out the middle section
