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.

    • I'm sorry but I'm not sure there is one, you can always finger spell it if you need to. x
    • I don't think there is a sign for Olive, you can finger spell it if you need to, but I've just searched it up in the BSL dictionary and there isn't one.   Very sorry x
    • The sign for Alpaca is a bit like that, except you put your elbow ontop of your other arm and Do that sign, but with no movement.   Video here: https://youtu.be/G-txp8YBpCI Hope this helps! x 
    • Ty! Much appreciated! Could Platinum maybe be the same as Gold and Silver, but with a P? x
    • The sign for Wales is to hold up your three middle fingers bent slightly forward (like a claw), and move your hand straight downwards. Video here:  https://www.signbsl.com/sign/wales   The sign for Rose is the same as 'flower' but you use the lip-pattern (mouthing the word) rose, the sign is put your finger and thumb together and touch either side under your nose, like smelling a flower. Video here:  https://www.signbsl.com/sign/rose     The sign for diamond is your non-dominant hand held flat, palm down (As if you were going to show someone your ring) and your dominant hand on top of that hand, fingers together and then open and close them quickly, as if to show sparkling of a diamond. Video here: https://www.signbsl.com/sign/diamond   There isn't an actual sign for platinum you would fingerspell p-l-a-t-i-n-u-m. You could use the sign for metal with the lip-pattern platinum, the sign for metal is your index finger taps your chin twice. Video (for metal) here: https://www.signbsl.com/sign/metal   Hope this helps  
    • I don't think there is one, you would finger spell c-y-a-n, you could use the sign for blue, that would be the closest actual sign. You could combine fingerspelling followed by the sign for blue straight after, that would probably be the clearest way to sign it with an actual sign.
    • My friend Dafid (Who is deaf)'s favourite colour is Cyan but doesn't know how to sign it, I thought I'd surprise him by finding out! Please let me know what it is, thanks x -Kayla x
