Make videos in minutes with professional results, but expect long export times.
InVideo is video-creation software designed to help you make professional-looking videos even if you have no editing experience. The software offers both free and paid plans, allowing you to use your own content or choose from standard and premium stock content as you create a video.
- Choose this software if you don’t have a lot of time to spend crafting your videos, but want a polished result.
- Consider something else if you need to create content offline or require features not currently supported by the software.
How does InVideo work?
Using InVideo’s web interface, you can choose a template for the size and shape of your screen, whether you want something wide for YouTube, a vertical screen for Instagram or something in between. Next, either upload your own content or use some of the stock content available to create your video. When you’re done, export your video in whatever format you choose, and you’re ready to upload.

Pros and Cons
- Quick. Users report that creating a video can take less than 20 minutes — much faster than other video software.
- Access to stock content. You can use your own videos, music and images, but InVideo gives you access to over a million stock content options without an extra fee.
- No restrictions on the videos you create. Unlike with some other video creation programs, the content you create using InVideo isn’t restricted, meaning you can use them for whatever purpose you need, or even sell them. The free version of the software does include a watermark on your videos.
- No template changes. Once you’ve selected a template, you have to start over to select a new one, which could mean losing a lot of work.
- Exporting process is long. Many users and reviewers complained that exporting a video takes much longer than it should, despite having reported the problem to InVideo support.
- Relies on a stable Internet connection. Because InVideo is a web-based app, the software is only as stable as your Internet connection.

InVideo’s straightforward interface makes the software a solid choice for anyone looking to create videos quickly — even if they don’t have a lot of experience.

Frequently Asked Questions
What happens to my stored videos when I cancel my subscription?
You can still access them, but they’ll be watermarked when you return to a free plan.
If I use multiple premium pictures or clips in a video and decide to remove them later, does that still count against my total?
Your premium count is only reduced when you export the video. As long as you remove the content before the video is exported, your counter won’t go down.
How can I pay for my subscription if I don’t have a Visa or Mastercard?
Contact customer support through live chat or by email to discuss alternative payments. But the website uses Stripe, which only allows Visa or Mastercard.
