Hi everyone, perhaps some of you who have used Ziggeo for some time prefer to be still using the reliable v1 and you are not really interested on using v2. Or you just happen to know Ziggeo and are still undecided whether to use v1 or v2 for embedding.
Now I'm gonna list the advantages of v2 over v1 so it might help you to decide.
Build from ground up.
V2 was build from ground up by our engineers so it does not have any 3rd party dependencies (excluding Flash for browsers that don't support WebRTC)
So mobile responsiveness is present for recordings on mobile browsers much better than it was done on v1 (due to fact that it was depending on Flash and JWPlayer)
v2 recorder and player have many themes that you can try on. You can check the themes for recorder (https://ziggeo.com/features/video-recorder-themes) and player (https://ziggeo.com/features/video-player-themes). You can also select the main color of the theme using "themecolor". Furthermore you can style your player and recorder to your liking by using CSS. It would be easier to custom style to match the website designs
Better handling of embedding, methods, and events.
v2 embeddings work much better due to the fact that the embedding codes are for player and recorder are separated and the right code is called in only as needed. In the same way methods on v2 embeddings are more efficient due to the fact that all of the code is our own and easier to manage.
Of course with v2 embedding and methods, come also events, and while v1 offers you only global event system to utilize within your apps, the v2 events system is much richer. It includes individual / per embedding events system, the global event system (such as the one of v1) and the application level events system to allow you to subscribe to events from single embedding, to all of them and to entire system on your page or none at all - all at your own preference.
This would cut down your upload time, because as you record the video, our recorder is already streaming the data. Thus will make better user experience. This is only available on v2.
Due to how it is designed, it allows more features to be present like preview during upload, audio only recording, sharing, etc.
Faster and more reliable than it's predecessor
* application on v2 will not start the entire auth system unless it is specified, while v1 will.
* allows to easily add multiple different applications onto a single page
* allows creation even after the page is loaded
* more reliable
* minimized resource usage
* easier to maintain and add new features to (application, not the system itself only)
The v2 player is using `<ziggeoplayer>` and the recorder using `<ziggeorecorder>`. They are separated to make the system better and less error prone. Whereas V1 would use <ziggeo> for both which makes v2 much easier to read right away - what it is about, and help you with the setup even several times faster than the already simple v1 setup.
I hope that above information would help you decide
