Thanks for the plugin. I’ve Installed it to play with it. I am now developing a collaboration tool, where it could be very useful. I’ve got several questions if you wouldn’t mind:
Is it possible to turn the camera recording on and off? I haven’t found it
Is it possible to use it if safari? Didn’t work for me
Is it possible for the component to display only the camera (not the whole screen + camera)? I think it is more logical for the user actually
Is it possible to hide controls on the component while recording? Play button, volume control etc. They seem to have no value for the user.
And could you please share your contacts or drop me an email at oleg [at] meetclicker.com? I’d like to discuss making some improvements to the plugin or maybe building a custom one for us, if it is interesting for you.
I am using the camera only plugin but I have the same questions for #2 & #4 above. Plus, I’m looking to use this for a mobile app - on android (using chrome) It only lets me use the selfie camera no matter the selected camera. I’d also like to see the video full screen while recording.
Thank you for reaching out. Currently, the plugin is built for desktop/chrome only as it uses the browsers native functions. Unfortunately, we cannot test or build on the desktop version of Safari, as Apple no longer update the Windows version of this browser.
We have though since updated it re Oleg’s post, so you can now turn on or off, various options like screen record, camera, pc audio or microphone audio.
We do offer sponsorship of new plugin features, but only for the desktop version. However, if you email [email protected], we will assign your ticket to the plugin and if this does change, we can update you accordingly.
We are more than happy to confirm and check this, but if you can PM your email address across or email [email protected], we can assign a ticket to the plugin and keep you aware of any changes / or further tests.
Could someone download their recorded video in another file format like .mov or .mp4
Keeping it in this format for online playback and recording is fine. Doesn’t work for those who wish to download and keep a version though. Imagine this requires an export of some sort? If possible that is.
Does this allow recording of system audio i.e a video playing on the screen. I am building a video annotation app, where some of the video has audio. I want to record the user annotating the video, which is custom to each client they annotate it for. I can then share this session with the client, with the video retaining its original audio.
@sim sorry for the delay, we are not sure with the uploading capacity, but we certainly recorded much larger files. We are releasing updates to the plugin in the next few weeks, post this, we will sure to test this further on various browsers and see where the restrictions may lie.
Hi, I tried your demo page again, clicked that box recorded a youtube video and toggled audio on and off (microphone off, so it doesn’t capture it through there). No system audio is being recorded unfortunately after several efforts and checking that little share audio tickbox each and every time. Try it for yourself to see.
