IMPORTANT: Video support was added with version 1.1.0 of the application - please refer to the 'Additional information' tab for details of support for this feature

  • listen to your recording
  • provide a filename if you wish (if you don't, a default one will be used), and this will be applied to the file when it is uploaded
    • click OK to upload the file, or Cancel to discard the recording and start again

Future features are dependent on the popularity of the application - the following are items that are in mind, but not guaranteed to be included:

  1. Expansion of the functionality out to other areas & applications within the community suite
  2. Addition of video recording to the application ADDED
  3. Addition of a transcription service (using 3rd-party "Speech to Text" APIs), converting uploaded audio files to text via a background task and adding that textual content to the search index.

Video support is being added as of the release of v1.1.0 of the application

Please ensure that you are happy with the following information prior to purchasing and/or installing this application, as I may refuse to provide support for the issues called out below.

Be aware that there may be instances where videos recorded by a user may not be able to be viewed by other users - this is due to joy of Codecs used when recording a video. If a device doing the recording utilises a codec which is not available on other devices then it is possible that the viewer of the video will not be able to play the video.

RecordRTC aims to reduce the impact of this behaviour, but it is not infallible and there will be times where a video is recorded in a format that may be problematic on other devices. An example of this is when recording via Google Chrome on a Windows PC. If the 'Use hardware acceleration when available' system setting is enabled in Google Chrome then it will likely result in a video file using the "Matroska" format, which is only supported in Google Chrome at this time - disabling that setting on the browser doing the recording will likely then result in the VP8 codec being used instead, and this is more widely supported in browsers.

Please refer to https://recordrtc.org (section titled "Codecs support") for more details on supported codecs

Note: the above may become irrelevant once 'Video Encoding' functionality is made available by Invision on relevant Cloud plans.
