Video QR Code: Share online videos with a scan

What is a Video QR Code?

A Video QR Code when scanned takes users to a video that they can play. This can be used offline as well as online by individuals, entrepreneurs, and businesses.

How to use Video QR Codes


    • Grow your YouTube Channel: 
    • As a tattoo: 
    • Video Resume: 

    • Business Cards: You can easily create the perfect business card. Users can scan the QR code without an app on both Android and iOS.
    • Sales brochures:  Customers can visualize your product or service and its instant with a Video QR code on your brochures.

    • Product Updates: Show customers exactly what has changed instead of blogging about it. Use a Video QR code on your website, blog or newsletter.

Dynamic Video QR Codes

What if the link to your video expires or the video on your channel gets taken down? Instead of having static content on QR Codes that you have no control over, use dynamic QR codes that allow you to change the URL in real time.

Imagine you upload a new video on your channel every Wednesday. One single QR code can be updated to display a new video. Several YouTubers also have their own line of merchandise. In this case, adding a QR code can guarantee constant engagement.

For businesses that send out newsletters frequently, instead of creating and uploading a new QR code every month, the same QR code can be used.
