iOS gameplay capture platform Kamcord has announced it has secured over $1 million in funding and is introducing new features for users such as a community website to browse videos on the service and a new UI for developers allowing them to upload playlists and share videos, reports 9to5Mac. Other new features such as likes, comments, and user profiles on the service’s website will begin to roll out in the coming weeks.

We spoke with CEO Matt Zitzmann about some new features coming to the service today and he also filled us in on the progress the company has made since rolling out a new voice overlay feature back in June. Not only has the service reached an impressive 1 billion gameplay videos recorded (up from 500 million in June), Zitzmann also tells us the company is experiencing developers switching from rival in-game recording platforms due to a much higher rate of gameplay videos shared to social networks.

With its additional $1 million in funding, Kamcord now has total seed funding of $2.5 million, with investors such as Google Ventures, Y Combinator, and Merus Capital. The service currently supports over 70 games and offers its SDKs for free on its downloads page.

it only works with games that include their framework
