Have you got an action camera? It could be a GoPro - doesn't matter, we're not fussy. If you do: what do you do with all the footage you record? If you're like us before we built Col8, the answer's probably "Not a lot". There's most likely loads of great moments sitting on your computer's hard drive, just taking up space.
We want to help you make the most of your sports videos. Upload the footage to Col8, along with a corresponding route file, and we'll use where you've been to help you find the best parts of your videos. You get home, upload to Col8, and then use the map of where you went to skip straight to that corner you totally nailed for the first time to see how well you did it. Or look for the fastest point of the ride using the speed graph, and skip straight to it. Or find the moments you pushed it a little too hard and came off, really easily.
We'll keep your videos safe, and show you the best parts of them, easier than ever. We'll also help you share those moments with your riding buddies, and find cool new stuff to get inspired by.
So what do you need to get started?
- Something to record videos.
- Something to record where you've been.
For videos - you can upload any MP4 or Mov file. If you've got any GoPro, a Garmin Virb, or even just your phone, you're good to go.
For recording your route, the best way is to use our iOS app. This not only records where you've been, but also other data like G-Force, which we can use to tell you even more about your ride. There's other options too though. If you use Strava, we can get routes you've recorded from them - just choose "Connect with Strava" when you sign up. If you use any other sort of GPS device, we can accept a GPX file for your route.
