Recording Video

Recommended Posts

A great feature that we have recently added is the ability to record a video into your post directly from your webcam or mobile device - and it's really easy!

All you need to do is click on the red icon on the right hand side of the toolbar when you are writing your post.

Hello @Lesley Silvester - thanks for letting us know that you couldn't get this working.

We ran a security update to the server yesterday morning and it ended up blocking the connection for video recording (oops!).  We have updated the firewall settings now and you should be able to get it working.  Sorry about that.

If you still have difficulty with it please let me know.

Me just figuring it all out :) -There is a waiting period so far. I get a notification that my video will be ready within two minutes so I suppose I shouldn't submit my post before then. --Need Adobe Flash Player (at least on my computer). 

Edit: The resolution is a bit scratchy. So far, So good! Much more efficient than me recording a video, processing through iMovies, uploading to photo library, uploading to youtube, THEN posting the link here. Phew!

Hello @KaleLing  - I'll take a look at the server too to see if we can tweak the settings to improve the quality a little.

You do not need to wait when you see the '2 minute' notice - you can still submit your post and the video will appear there once it has been processed.

Hello @Lesley Silvester - it appears that your webcam doesn't support the frame rate of recording (the number of still images it takes per second) that we were using by default.  I have reduced this to a more standard setting and I think that may solve the issue that you had - let me know if you get a chance to try it again.

- EDIT: Further investigation suggests that this isn't the case -the frame rate was already correct.  Did you plug your webcam in after you had opened the recording window?  The video recorder couldn't see your webcam so it could be that if you plugged it in just before recording this was too late.

Over the past few days we have upgraded the video recording software used on this site.  Video recording should now be a smooth process and can be used on desktop and mobile devices.  To record a video in a post just press the red button below the text input box when you are creating a topic or replying to a post.

    • What are the signs in Scotland for days of the week
    • Hello! My name is Casey. I want to learn more BSL. (ASL translation: I use ASL as my primary language but now I want to learn BSL) Thank you!

      I would appreciate if anyone would be willing to practice with me and correct my BSL signs.
    • Hey everyone!
      My name is Michelle and I am here to get to know some BSL users! I would love to get to know someone around my own age (23) to practice with, or to teach me.
      I have been learning on my own for some time now and I am very much still a beginner, but I am evolving, and I love the language and the culture.

      I am from Denmark and I am not just looking to practice, I am looking to make friends in the deaf community. Tell me about everything! The good, the bad..the fun!. I myself have not formally been to any BSL classes, but I joined in on some beginner lessons in Oxford last year, and I had a somewhat understandable conversation on BSL with the teacher.

      So please message me if you think it could be fun to learn me a thing or two about your life - or your own learning experience (or If you, you know, love cats, Harry Potter, Backpacking and Netflix...really get a hold of me! haha)
