How to Use HTML5 Recorder
Allow access to webcam and microphone when prompted by browser, to enable recording. Select Video/Audio mode (configurable from settings), use Start/Stop buttons to record. Then you can playback preview, download recording or sent to server, or discard and retry.
Recorder can save video/audio recordings in format supported by browsers (mp4/mp3 in Safari, webm in most other HTML5 browsers). Videos can be converted with Video Share VOD if integration is enabled. Access this page again (reload) to restart web recording application.
Although recording does not involve special hosting requirements (except ability to upload the HTML5 recorded files), processing the videos server side with VideoShareVOD or similar plugins requires FFmpeg.
