Video collection

RTL gives you various ways to get video recordings into the database.

Webcam recording

Interviewees can record their own story on this website, using their computer's webcam. Each submitted recording will appear in the list of videos to code. To enable this, create a prompt under your project, then go to the prompt's details page. Copy the link shown on that page and send it to all of your participants.

  • Requires a webcam.
  • Uploading the video requires a fast internet connection.
  • Works with all modern browsers and devices.
  • Note: recording quality is usually poor on phones and tablets (jittery, poor camera angle, etc.)

Admin upload

As an admin, you can upload pre-recorded videos simply by using the normal webcam recording link (see above), and clicking the "Upload" button instead of the "Record" button.
