It takes hours...
This app seems easy to use and it is but the videos take hours to upload to huddles. I’ve had it take days sometimes. Of course, I live in a rural area so maybe it’s our internet but it is a huge frustration when I’m already dealing with the stress of being videoed for a supervisor to give feedback.

Sorry to hear you're having issues uploading to Sibme. Unfortunately, Sibme has no control over the strength of your internet connection. Given that you're in a rural area, you may want to check with your Internet Service Provider to determine if they can help you improve your connection and/or speed.
Pro tip - If you want faster uploads, make sure to record your videos inside the Sibme app. Sibme makes video files significantly smaller when you record from inside the app. If you record outside the Sibme app with the default camera, the file you recorded will be about 80-90% larger and will take significantly longer to upload to the Sibme cloud regardless of the strength of your internet connection. Please email email@example.com if you're still having trouble and we can help you on the technical side. With regards to making you feel more comfortable videotaping your teaching practice, email firstname.lastname@example.org and we can hook you up with one of our amazing virtual coaches to chat with :)
Excellent tool for reflection and coaching
I have been using Sibme in secondary public schools for three years and am extremely satisfied with its functionality and the support we receive from the developer. Uploading lengthy video clips can take time - not a platform issue - but we chunk our videos in 15-20 mins for speedier upload times and also to more narrowly reflect on portions of a lesson. I love the tagging options and the setting options that allow us to customize our experience. I highly recommend Sibme!
I cannot stand this app. It is extremely slow to upload videos. At first I would upload videos using my MacBook and it took 4hrs to upload a 45min lesson on to Sibme. I contacted support, they advised me to use google chrome which I was using. I wouldn't use the app on my phone because it would drain my battery, but I had no other choice. When I recorded videos on my phone, Sibme would randomly stop recording. If you are an instructor reading this, please do not have your students submit their assignments through this app as it is unreliable. My classmates have also been struggling with the same issues I've been dealing with.

We're so sorry to hear you've had a frustrating experience. We work hard to make sure our web and mobile apps are able to upload video quickly. Our most recent iOS software for Apple devices is designed to make video uploading as simple as possible. Also, we've fixed several issues that might contribute to a recording interruption on iOS in our recent software updates. We would like to help identify the cause of your slow upload speed. If you would contact email@example.com, that would be very helpful.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
