Video is a technology. It records moving images onto some medium. The recorder may be a separate machine such as a videocassette recorder (also called a VCR) or built into something else such as a video camera.

A popular 20th century videotape format was VHS. It was used by many people to record television programmes onto cassettes. This is usually an analog format. In the 21st century digital recording is more used.

By extension, a Video clip is a short movie, usually starring some artist who recorded an (audio) album. One purpose is to promote the album.
