Video Comments Webcam Recorder

Description

The Video Comments Webcam Recorder allows WordPress users to record video comments as responses to posts or to other comments. If the user is not logged into WordPress he cannot access this feature.

Key Features

  • Web based webcam recording
  • Insert webcam videos in WordPress comments
  • Insert webcam videos in BuddyPress activity posts
  • Multiple players supported
  • HTML5 playback support (if conversion is supported)
  • Edit recorder settings from plugin backend

Supports conversion to MP4 for HTML5 playback if FFMPEG and Flash + HTML5 codecs are available and web and rtmp are on same server (so web scripts can access rtmp video files).

Integrates with the Video Share VOD – Turnkey Video Site Builder WordPress plugin for advanced video management, multiple players and settings (recommended).

Special requirements: This plugin has requirements beyond regular WordPress hosting specifications: a RTMP host is needed for persistent connections to manage live interactions and streaming (Wowza recommended). More details about this, including solutions are provided on the Installation section pages.

For more details see the WordPress Webcam Video Recorder plugin homepage by VideoWhisper.

Desktop Sharing / Screen Broadcasting

If your users want to broadcast their screen (when playing a game, using a program, tutoring various computer skills) they can do that easily just by using a screen sharing driver that simulates a webcam from desktop contents.

I was asked if users can record the video, as some of what is said in my conferences needs to be heard again and again. So yes, it is useful to have such a feature when you broadcast yourself.
