    WebCam video capturing widget written in HTML5

    Asked by Vadim  on October 09, 2015 at 05:59 AM

    Hello! Great service, guys! I'm wondering if you have a widget like "take photo" but for capturing video from webcam, based on html5? Thanks!

    You can check this page regarding video widgets here: http://widgets.jotform.com/category/video.

    From what I can see, the one that best fits your needs would be the WebCam 2 YouTube widget.

    I hope that helps.

    Thanks for the reply! Seems that widget uses flash, the goal is to set up flashless webcam capture tool.

    Are there any more solutions?

    Unfortunately, we do not have a webcam widget that is purely written in HTML5.

    I will forward this as a feature request so that our widget team will be aware that you are looking for this. Please note that I'm unable to guarantee that this will be implemented anytime soon, but rest assure that our developers are already aware of this request. We will update you on this thread as soon as this will has been released.

    Thank you for your understanding.
