A Clip Tape is a video-based recruiting tool, where a collection of scenes are carefully chosen to show the appeal of a character or show, or to highlight a pairing -- similar to modern picspams, but using video.
Examples of cliptapes
One well-known example is from the Sentinel fandom. The Lofttape is composed of clips of Jim and Blair being domestic in the loft.
