Customize VideoWhisper Webcam Extensions

If you need to tweak, clean files manually, look for extension folders (vr, ls, vmls, videorecoder, videomessenger, livestreaming) in:

  • Flash applications, templates, skins: skin/frontend/base/default/media/
  • HTML code templates: app/design/frontend/base/default/template/videowhisper/
  • Snapshots: media/
  • Code: app/code/community/Videowhisper/

If template width is too small and does not fit new applications, it usually can be changed from skin/frontend/default/your-theme-folder/style.css . Look for wrapper or page and increase width from 960 or other default.

All available application parameters are documented on php edition page for each application.
