Ziggeo Automatically Converts Videos to Black/White

OK, this is the coolest thing. Ziggeo now automatically converts your videos to black and white. We’re showing it off on our landing page demo which records you on video and then automatically converts it to black/white.

Can I make the recorder show my domain instead of assets.ziggeo.com?

When the Flash-based recorder is trying to access your users’ cameras for the first time, the following window will show up:

adobe-flash

It clearly shows our domain. If you want your domain to be displayed there instead, you need to serve our Flash file from your servers.

This is how it works:

  1. Download our Flash file.
  2. Serve it up from your server, e.g. yourdomain.com/somepath/ziggeo.swf.
  3. Add the following configuration to your website’s header:
ZiggeoApi.Uris.recorder_swfsrc = "yourdomain.com/somepath/ziggeo.swf";

How can I reset a recorder widget?

If you want to reuse a recording (or playback) widget in your page, you first need to provide a an embedding id:

<ziggeo ziggeo-id="foobar"></ziggeo>

Using this id, you can find your embedding and reset your embedding as follows:

var embedding = ZiggeoApi.Embed.get("foobar");
embedding.reset();
