FAQs for sharing videos with QR codes
Question not answered?
Do video QR codes expire?

You’ll have to read the details of the generator you’re using to find out whether the video QR codes you’ve created will expire after a certain amount of time or number of scans. Certain generators may offer a free plan that limits the number of times their codes can be scanned. Other generators, like Flowcode, offer a code with unlimited scans with their free plan. These codes are dynamic, so the location of one code with unlimited scans can be altered without having to generate a new code.

Can a QR code show a video?

As long as a video is hosted at a publicly accessible online address, you can create a QR code linked to it. Once you’ve generated a code linked to the video’s location, you’ll be able to share that code online or print it out for placement on stickers, flyers, merchandise or anywhere else in the world.

How do I share a video with a QR code?

If you want to link a QR code to a video, you’ll first have to be sure that the video is uploaded to a publicly accessible online location. Copy the link to that location into a QR code generator and you’ll create a code that can be scanned by pretty much all modern smartphones. Now you’ll just need to send the code to someone or print it out and place it wherever you’d like to make the video accessible.

Where can I place QR codes for videos?

QR codes can be on screens, printed out onto flat surfaces in the world, and even placed in the sky via projections or drones. The location of your video QR codes will depend on who you hope will be scanning them and for what purpose. If you’re looking to share a wedding video, you can include a QR code on the thank you notes you send after the event. If you’re a videographer looking to show off your reel, you can print the code onto business cards for potential clients to see. Codes for safety videos can be placed on signs in the workplace and teachers can put codes into their classrooms to link directly to educational videos. There are nearly as many places to put video QR codes as there are surfaces around you.

Can each QR code only link to one video?

QR codes can be linked to almost any online destination. That means you can generate a code that links to a page with multiple videos on it. For example, Flowcode offers landing pages that can host a gallery of videos. Flowcode’s higher tiers also offer Smart Rules, which allow a code to have multiple destinations that vary depending on when, where, or how a code is scanned. For example, a code could link to different videos depending on whether it’s scanned with an Apple device or an Android device.

How do I make a free QR code for a video?

The cost of creating a QR code will vary depending on the generator and the plan you choose. If you only need to create one QR code, you’ll almost certainly be able to find a free plan that meets your needs. For example, Flowcode’s generator offers your first code, along with a landing page where you can host your video, for free. These codes are dynamic, so the destination can be changed without generating a new code. If you need to create multiple codes simultaneously, however, you may have to opt for a paid plan.
