With JoinCombo shutting down unexpectedly, you may find yourself looking for a new tool. A lot of content creators relied heavily on it and now find themselves with no way to quickly edit and share their clips to social media. Don’t worry, Framedrop not only offers a clip editor but also offers a quick and easy way to find your clips through AI. In this blog post we’ll look into both tools’ features and why Framedrop is great for ex-JoinCombo users.
JoinCombo - What Happened?
JoinCombo - which was also referred to as just Combo - started as one of the pioneers of clip storing, editing and sharing and amassed a large following throughout the years. Their new way of creating short-form content from clips became a powerful tool for creators since it easily let you turn your content from horizontal to vertical to fit platforms like YouTube Shorts, TikTok and Instagram Reels. It also let you heavily customize the look of your clip through features like text, captions, stickers, templates and more.
JoinCombo announced that they would be shutting down in a farewell email. The date of this shutdown was the 14th of December 2023.
Best JoinCombo Alternative: Framedrop
In 2024, the list of alternatives to JoinCombo can be overwhelming. Many tools offer the same functionalities that JoinCombo had. But in 2024, it is time to speed up the process of repurposing your content. This makes Framedrop the best way to turn your YouTube and Twitch content into TikToks, Shorts and Reels.

JoinCombo also had automated edits, a feature that Framedrop will also soon offer that will let you get AI-edited clips ready for posting.
Add AI Clipping To The Mix
Framedrop doesn’t just let you edit your clips. It can work even before that. Through AI you can find your highlights from things like:

For $19.90 a month, Pro plan users can speed things up even more by using Framedrop’s multi-processing feature that allows them to find clips in multiple videos at the same time. With Pro plan you also get priority queue and 40 hours of upload content per month.

Saying Goodbye to JoinCombo
As we bid farewell to JoinCombo and search for a new clip editing tool in 2024, Framedrop emerges as the standout alternative. JoinCombo, once a pioneer in clip storing, editing, and sharing, left a void in the content creator community with its unexpected shutdown in December 2023. However, Framedrop steps in to fill that gap, offering not only a clip editor but also an intelligent way to discover highlights through AI allowing for a smooth transition from the legacy of JoinCombo to an ever speedier workflow. Don’t leave your audience waiting! Return to posting with Framedrop.
JoinCombo shut down on the 14th of December. JoinCombo users received an email announcing the shutdown but this email did not explain why it was taking place.
When JoinCombo users were met with an email announcing JoinCombo’s shutdown they got a date for when it would take place - 14th of December 2023 - but no official reason as to why JoinCombo was closing its doors.
The best alternative to JoinCombo, Framedrop, offers a powerful clip editor with the added benefits of AI highlight detection. Framedrop’s AI detects anything from awesome gaming plays to funny moments and chat reactions. This means you can also use Framedrop if your a Just Chatting or IRL streamer.
Although similar in principle and working as clip editors - turning content into TikToks/Shorts/Reels - Framedrop adds a fast and reliable AI highlight detection feature that really speeds up the process of creating these short-format videos. Simply paste your video URL and Framedrop will find the best moments in minutes.
