Capturing Video and Audio

It would be a nice feature to record video and audio from an attached device for a defined number of seconds through a trigger. This could then be shared to the video file queue for local or email usage.


This would be great…

yes please!!


I want to create an experience, A video messaging kiosk that works like this.

User approaches a kiosk,
Taps the screen,
A disclaimer message appears and they accept it.
They are presented with a live view of themselves from the attached PC web cam or DSL camera.
This live video fee is displayed in a nice sized window within the experience.
They tap the screen and the camera records them and their video message. (video and audio)
A count down timer for the 15 secs is also displayed on screen for time left of recording.
At the end of the recording, the video stops and a thank you message is displayed.
At the moment, the video is saved to a hot folder on the local PC and/or uploaded to the cloud to drop box or something like this if wifi is available, But always a copy is store locally.

We want to use if for lead tracking at trade shows, yes people can leave notes but a sales person pressed for time (or lazy) won’t so I want a lot of different ways of working. But if somebody could leave a note before a clients details were submitted to remind them of what they were talking about I think it could be a game changer. If I develop it I will be happy to post it in marketplace, its all about making exhibitions work better

Hi @chris,

I worked on a proof of concept a while ago which I never had time to finish. It was based on this article and basically calling their tool through command line to start § stop the recording.
It wasn’t the cleanest way to do things, that’s why I never published this code.
Let me know if you find a better alternative or if you wish to have a look at this IA code.
