How to Install Youdio on Windows 8.1

Youdio for Windows is a unique hybrid application that runs both in your Web browser and as a native Windows app in order to make our amazing multi-track collaborative videos. This means that the first time you try Youdio for Windows you'll have to install our app, but after that everything will just work automatically directly from your Web browser every time.

  1. To access Youdio on your computer, simply open your favourite Web browser (Chrome, Firefox, or Internet Explorer) and go to
  2. You'll see a selection of the latest videos by our users - select one you like and click on Create with this... 
  3. You'll be taken to the next page where you can see all of the tracks that have already been recorded for this song. Pick some you like by clicking on the little + icon next to them, then click on the Continue (launch app) button on the right.
  4. If you have used Youdio already, the app will launch automatically. However if this is your first time on Youdio you will see a page prompting you to download the Youdio Music Video Creator application. In order to make the unique Youdio multi-track videos you will have to install this app on your computer, just like you would with any other Windows application. Click on the Download button.
  5. You may get a Windows 8 warning message asking you to look in the Windows Store. Ignore this message, because we aren't available on that store (yet).
  6. Simply wait a few seconds for the large orange Download button to appear on the page, then click on that.
  7. If you are using the Chrome browser you will see the downloaded file at the bottom left of your browser window. Click on it to open it. If you see a warning to Discard it, click on the arrow beside it and select Keep instead.
  8. If you see a warning that Windows protected your PC, do NOT click OK, click where it says More info.
  9. Click on Run Anyway.
  10. The Youdio Music Video Creator installer will run, click Next  to proceed.
  11. If you get a Windows Firewall message select Allow to allow the Youdio app to communicate with our servers.
  12. The Youdio app will now run and start downloading your selected tracks from the Youdio online servers.
  13. That's it - you're good to go and start creating on Youdio! Remember next time as soon as you select your chosen video tracks this app will automatically launch, so you can just play right away. See you on Youdio!
