The online video player that can play video from files and URL links

Frustrated by how long it takes to upload videos to other hosting sites? Looking to play TikToks or YouTube videos without having to download them first? Kapwing's free online video player has you covered. You can play multiple different file types with instant drag and drop, or simply pasting in the link. You can also store all your videos, images, GIFs, and audio tracks in one place. Unlike other video hosting websites, you can even edit your video in the same place.

When it’s ready to share, you have the option to download video from the online player to send it to your colleagues, friends, and family. Or, simply add them to your workspace or share a link to your project so they can watch online without having to deal with the files. They can also edit and leave comments for feedback (or just for fun).

Frequently Asked Questions

Bob, our kitten, thinking

What is the online video player for all formats?

There are several online video players and editors, including Kapwing, that allow you to play multiple types of video formats. With Kapwing, you can play file types like MOV, MP4, WMV, AVI, and more. Just upload your video file and it will be ready to watch.

How do I play videos on my browser?

To play videos on your web browser, you can use the browser itself (as long as it supports video playing) if there’s a play button on the video. If you want to play a file on your device, you can right-click the file and select to play it on a browser. You can also upload the file to an online tool that supports video playing, like Kapwing.

Why can’t I watch videos on Google Chrome?

There are several reasons this could be happening. You might have outdated extensions or browser settings, or issues with Flash Player. You might also be trying to watch a video file format that’s not compatible with the player. You can try updating Chrome or further troubleshooting—or you can use a free online video player like Kapwing instead.

How can I play videos in Chrome without downloading?

If you want to play videos in Chrome without downloading, you can opt for browser extensions or online video players like Vimeo and YouTube that offer streaming capabilities. This way, you can watch them in Chrome (and many other browsers) without the need to download the video files themselves.

Best online video service ever. And a miracle for deaf people.
[Subtitler] is able to autogenerate subtitles for video in almost any language. I'm deaf (or almost deaf, to be correct) and thanks to Kapwing I'm now able understand and react on videos from my friends :)

By the far the most user friendly software to use.
As a housewife at home looking to start a Youtube channel for fun with absolutely zero editing experience, it was so easy for me to teach myself via their YouTube channel. It takes the tediousness out of editing and encourages creativity. As long as Kapwing is around, I will be using their software.

Love this site.
As a English Foreign Language Teacher, this site helps me to quickly subtitle interesting videos that I can use in class. The students love the videos, and the subtitles really help them to learn new vocabulary as well as better understand and follow the video.

Excellent subtitling features
[It] works perfectly for me. Have been using Kapwing for a year or so, and their automatic subtitle tool gets better and better every week, it's rare that I have to correct a word. Keep up the good work!
