Review High-Quality Video with Your Team Remotely

We heard you. It’s now eas­i­er than ever to host dig­i­tal video review sessions.

Can you see my screen?”
You didn’t catch that? I’ll go back.”
It’s lag­ging behind for you?”

You prob­a­bly miss gath­er­ing around the TV or pro­jec­tor with your team in-per­son to break down film. You prob­a­bly miss it even more when you host a dig­i­tal video review ses­sion, try to share your screen, and all your play­ers see is slow, chop­py video.

If that’s you, get excit­ed about the new fea­ture we’ve been work­ing on to make vir­tu­al coach­ing eas­i­er. Now while you’re on a video call, you and your play­ers can open a sep­a­rate brows­er, nav­i­gate to Hudl, and watch the same video at the same time. All from the com­fort and safe­ty of your own homes. 

Use any teleconferencing tool

When you’re ready to start a video review ses­sion, pull up your pre­ferred tele­con­fer­enc­ing tool. Zoom, Google Hangouts, GoToMeeting — they’ll all work. Then have every­one open up Hudl on their com­put­ers and nav­i­gate to the same video to watch togeth­er. It’s that simple.

Smooth, seamless video for everyone

Slow, chop­py video is a thing of the past. When you host a review ses­sion on Hudl, there’s no need to share your screen on Zoom or Google Hangouts. Now each team mem­ber can watch the same high-qual­i­ty video at the same time through their per­son­al Hudl account. 

This is a big improve­ment. The clar­i­ty of the pic­ture and being able to iden­ti­fy things.” Nathan Smith, assis­tant var­si­ty women’s bas­ket­ball coach at Ballard High School (Iowa)

Control playback for the whole team

You might be won­der­ing, How can they see what I’m doing if I don’t share my screen?” We’re glad you asked. As soon as you start a ses­sion on Hudl and share the link with your team, they’ll see what’s hap­pen­ing on your end on their own com­put­er. When you rewind, their video rewinds. When you skip ahead five sec­onds, their video skips ahead five sec­onds. You get the picture.

Teach with text and drawings

They’ll also be able to see effects you pre­vi­ous­ly added to the video, so get cre­ative with your visu­al feed­back before you meet. Use arrows and spot shad­ows to point out the open donut to your out­side hit­ter or call out the need to switch on a back­side screen. Pro tip: Make your video review ses­sion effi­cient by using the Next” but­ton to jump from one effect to another.

Review all types of video

Whether you want to ana­lyze your team’s last game, scout an oppo­nent or dig into the details of a playlist, you can. The option to host a review ses­sion is avail­able in the video play­er for all con­tent types.

We’re excit­ed to see your teams take advan­tage of this fea­ture not only dur­ing COVID-19, but also out­side of it. This is some­thing we would’ve used every week had we still been in our sea­son.” Dave McIntyre, Kitchener Waterloo Predators Volleyball Club (Ont.)

It’s cur­rent­ly avail­able for all users on the lat­est ver­sion of Hudl. Check out these steps to see how it works, then log in to your account to start a ses­sion. (Those of you on the grid­iron, stay tuned — we’re drop­ping some­thing sim­i­lar for you this fall.)
