The VideoWhisper Video Recorder component can easily be used to add webcam recorded videos and archived streams to Joomla sites.
Joomla Video Recordings component
+ Joomla Component (configurable)
+ Users can record webcam videos
+ Browse videos (sort, search, filter)
+ Import videos (archived streams)
+ Export to JomSocial, HWD Video Share, ALL Video Share
JW Player, Flow Player, HTML5 video

The component is developed using MVC (model view controller) for Joomla and same extensions work on Joomla 1.5, 1.6, 1.7, 2.5 or higher.
Joomla is an award-winning member and content management system (CMS), which enables you to build web sites and powerful online applications. Joomla is free and open source, easy to install and supports many ready made add ons to extend its functionality (e-commerce, e-learning, inventory, reporting, bridges to other applications).
You can test it on these live sites:
- Cam Communicator (Joomla 2.5+)
- Video Chat Software (Joomla 1.5)
Register an account to test video recording and use left menus to record and browse videos.
Back End Component Features
Administrators are able to add 3 types of menu items from Admin Panel > Menus > Videowhisper Recordings:
+ Record (record a new video)
Import (import archived streams)
List (browse videos),
The administrators can access the component options page from Admin Panel > Components > VideoWhisper Video Recordings.
That page shows integrated component detection and allows changing component's settings from Parameters button.
Administrators can also change player and enable integrations (exporting videos to other components).
Front End Component Features
Users can record webcam videos on the website or import their own archived streams. Administrators can import any available archived streams.
Users can view the list of video recordings filtered by date, title or number of views. Can search, filter by tag/author.
Video details can be changed by the owner or by the administrator. The owner and the admin can also delete videos.
Recorded and imported videos are automatically included in supported components if integration is enabled and these are available: JomSocial, HWD Video Share, ALL Video Share.
Special requirements for this edition:
For conversions and multiple integrations, rtmp server must be on same physical server as web server so scripts can access the recordings. We recommend Wowza hosting.
- For conversions web hosting requires ffmpeg (with h264,
faac, speex codecs) to generate mp4 for iphone/ipad and ffmpeg2theora for ogv needed for HTML5 playback in certain browsers.
2. Install the component zip from Extensions > Install/Uninstall in joomla administrator interface.
3. From joomla administrator interface fill in component parameters from Components > VideoWhisper Video Recordings.
Make sure you update these depending on your rtmp setup (some suggestive form samples provided):
We send you these settings if you host with us.
4. Add new menu items, as needed:
+ Browse Videos
+ Record a Video
+ You can install and use multiple VideoWhisper communication components on same website.
+ Disable/configure any SEO/ad injection components to avoid altering output and urls for these components. Changing links or adding extra content to component output will usually cause flash application parameter errors.
Customizing Joomla Video Recorder Integration
The wordpress integration is based on a slightly modified php video recorder edition so you can also check that for customizing settings, integration and implementation of other features.
