SilCam Plugin

Post by CodeHouse »

Hi everybody! for some reason I am working on a quick app and i am using the Silcam Plugin to stream video to a server, everything seem to work well except that the size of the video gets too large within minutes (200-300mb). As part of the plugin function, there's a streaming control but i'm looking at how to reduce the size through the plugin script.

Kindly point me on how to do this, perhaps there's another camera plugin? Also I could easily do this with RecordRTC and WebRTC but I get javascript error using the mmb browser.

Thanks for any idea

Does error message stop script execution? If no, I guess it can be suppressed and script will continue silently.

MMB is embedding the Internet Explorer Trident Renderer

IE 9/11 don't support WebRTC and modern stuff like that

I don't think there ever will be a Chromium embed in MMB

WebKit is the nice way for plugin developers (if they are still here) ;)

WebKit is dead, we're talking about Blink

There is Chromium Embedded Framework (CEF) which has support for Delphi and others. Maybe it is possible to include CEF instance by a MMB Delphi Plugin. That would be crazy.

If you want to know my opinion - Delphi is a pile of garbage.

I wouldn't say it's nice, I had only noticed it in the context of CEF

I just want to notice that it’s really strange to say “WebKit is dead” when one’s talking about MMB ;)
