Riffly Webcam Video Comments

Riffly is a free service that easily plugs into your site allowing visitors to create video/audio comments.

It's not working, can you help?

Absolutely. We're happy to help and always try to respond promptly. Send us an email at contact@riffly.com or fill out the contact form on our web site.

Why doesn't the Flash recorder work with my Mac's iSight webcam?

This is a problem with iSight/Flash and is not specific to Riffly's recorder.

Riffly, will now auto-detect your iSight camera and select it for you, but just incase follow the below instructions:

Click the "Add Webcam Comment" link to bring up the Riffly recorder and then click "Allow". Hold down the Control key and click with the mouse in the Flash recorder window. This will bring up the Flash menu, select "Settings...". Then click on the camera tab at the bottom of that settings window. Select "USB Video Class Video” from the drop down list and it should begin to work.

Is it possible to change the text (to a different language)?

Yes. Edit the wp-content/plugins/riffly/wp-riffly.php file. At the top of the file uncomment the definition and edit the value. This will override the default value.

/***** BEGIN TRANSLATION *****/
// rifflyL10N["add_webcam_comment"] = "Add Webcam Comment";
// rifflyL10N["add_audio_comment"] = "Add Audio-only Comment";
// rifflyL10N["play_video_comment_link"] = "Play Video Comment";
// rifflyL10N["play_video_comment_comment"] = "Play Video<br>Comment &raquo;";
// rifflyL10N["play_audio_comment_link"] = "Play Audio Comment";
// rifflyL10N["play_audio_comment_comment"] = "Play Audio<br>Comment &raquo;";
// rifflyL10N["close_player_link"] = "X";
// rifflyL10N["close_recorder_link"] = "X";
/***** END TRANSLATION *****/

Here's a (perhaps poor) translation into Japanese for example:

/***** BEGIN TRANSLATION *****/
rifflyL10N["add_webcam_comment"] = "ウェブカメラによるコメント";
rifflyL10N["add_audio_comment"] = "音声によるコメント";
rifflyL10N["play_video_comment_link"] = "コメント ビデオ再生";
rifflyL10N["play_video_comment_comment"] = "コメント ビデオ再生 &raquo;";
rifflyL10N["play_audio_comment_link"] = "音声コメントの再生";
rifflyL10N["play_audio_comment_comment"] = "音声コメントの再生 &raquo;";
rifflyL10N["close_player_link"] = "X";
rifflyL10N["close_recorder_link"] = "X";
/***** END TRANSLATION *****/

Is it possible to use only video comments (remove audio)?

Yes. You can choose to offer either webcam or audio comments or both. Edit the wp-content/plugins/riffly/wp-riffly.php file. At the top of the file uncomment option you want to set and change the value. Change true to false to disable.

/***** BEGIN OPTIONS *****/
// Change to false to disable.
// rifflyConfig["webcam_enabled"] = true;
// rifflyConfig["audio_enabled"] = true;
/***** END OPTIONS *****/

For webcam (video) only comments it should look like this:

/***** BEGIN OPTIONS *****/
// Change to false to disable.
rifflyConfig["webcam_enabled"] = true;
rifflyConfig["audio_enabled"] = false;
/***** END OPTIONS *****/

For audio only comments it should look like this:

/***** BEGIN OPTIONS *****/
// Change to false to disable.
rifflyConfig["webcam_enabled"] = false;
rifflyConfig["audio_enabled"] = true;
/***** END OPTIONS *****/
