Old browser options?

Are there options for users still using IE?

WebRTC support for Internet Explorer has been tested on Chrome Frame for Internet Explorer users in non-metro mode. WebRTC is the trend in real time communication, sooner or later I dont see any reason why I wont be fully supported on all the browsers. Sir are some other functionalities that you would like to see?

Rahul21 (talk)06:30, 18 March 2014

Chrome Frame is no longer supported, so that is not a good solution.

I completely agree that WebRTC is the current trend. However, there are still a number of WikiEducator users using IE, and it would be ideal to find a solution that does not leave them behind.

I agree to that fact, but with the all the goodies that WebRTC brings, they do not have legacy browser support. But with all that webRTC has to offer I guess upgrading to a modern browser would not be a bad choice. An other lovely usecase : I saw that wikiEducator uses a proprietary tool for video conferencing, using WebRTC we can build a lovely p2p conferencing tool. Again it is a toughie, but I would not mind adding this in the project scope( or atleast completing a major part )

While we do use G+ Hangouts for most of our video conferences, we also have a WebRTC conferencing tool embedded right in the wiki using the TogetherJS library. Enable the CollabOERate feature on the Gadgets page of your preferences.

Yes I saw it. Thank you for enlightening me.

Editing existing audio/video clips?

Is it practical to allow users to edit (or at least trim) existing clips?

If editing is possible, how will wiki attribution be tracked?

JimTittsler (talk)07:09, 18 March 2014

Sir, creating an editing tool is a huge task, there are alternatives but. For example : http://audacity.sourceforge.net/ It is an open source audio editing tool. I have not thought about making this tool within the scope of this porject, but it looks like a good addition

We use the Kaltura collaborative video editor in WikiEducator pages. It would be great if there were a similar project that handled WebM.
