Recording Video

8 posts in this topic

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.

For some reason I can't video. I have enabled Adobe flash player. Anything else I can try?

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.

Thanks, Simon. I had two goes at recording my name sign and both recorded but the screen is just back. I can hear background noises though. It must be me because I'm not very techno savvy.

@Lesley Silvester - ok, thanks.  Tomorrow I will take a look at the logs on the server and see if they tell me what the problem was.  I'll let you 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.

    • Voiced over. Throughout this video, I sign the ASL signs for right handed and left handed.  Oops.
    • I am a left handed signer. Always have been. Some people are lefties and you'll find them. tip, just mirror whatever a right handed signe is doing whilst learning. You'll get the hang of it. Promise!
    • I am on my iPad today and cannot use the VSL forums. I would much appreciate if anyone can Skype me.  Cheers!
    • Hi All, I posted an intro about myself and was after some help to sign a video for me. As it happens I launched my fundraising plea without the video on Kickstarter today - please feel free to take a look and I would welcome any feedback and or support. This initiative is in aid of supporting the Deaf and Hard of Hearing IoT Smartcities infrastructure. Just launched: - https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/77736556/digital-communication-channel-for-deaf-and-hard-of I would appreciate all or any help in achieving my goal please
    • Dear All, I am a bit of a (hearing) tech geek and have a personal friend who is Deaf, therefore I understand a fair amount about the difficulties of not being included in everything. I have recently identified a revolutionary new Digital Communication Channel that has been approved and endorsed by RDA (which will come free of charge to Deaf and Hard of Hearing & friends and family) and I am reaching out to the community for support in turning this into reality. I am in the process of setting up a fundraising campaign on Kickstarter, news to follow soon, however as part of my Kickstarter Application I would like to add a 'signed' video to demonstrate and verify my working proof of concept and looking for a volunteer. My plan is to develop an intelligent Lifestyle & communication Mobile Application including an ewallet with some really exciting and innovative features, eg augmented reality (think Pokemon Go but not as a game rather as an identifier), Gamification, loyalty etc to name only a few. For example, you're on a train/tube and suddenly it comes to a stop, no station in sight and there is no apparent reason for this stop. Hearing people get frustrated when there are no Tannoy announcements as to why they may have come to a stop, or how long they might be stuck in the situation or in fact just any news about what might be going on. Deaf and hard of hearing people don't have a choice, they just have to tolerate this or if confident enough ask someone nearby what is going on. Sitting in a Doctors' waiting room, Hospital A&E waiting for your name to be called is somewhat useless to Deaf and Hard of hearing individuals. A hearing person might be in a shopping mall when an emergency announcement is being made about a potential threat, this kind of announcement goes by without recognition from a Deaf person (unless they are being accompanied). A hearing person is able to hear public announcements in trains stations and airports about changes to schedules, delays and even boarding calls, however these announcements go totally unheard by Deaf and a lot of Hard of Hearing individuals, again unless accompanied. In light of the Manchester Bombings it has become even more apparent to me that there is a definite need for this form of Digital Infrastructure and Communication. Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you soon. Please feel free to get in touch directly or on [email protected] This is a personal venture!
