    I am glad to let you all know that our system has the audio only implementation. It is not the true audio only system that we want to have so we will definitely be making updates of the same, however we wanted you to have a solution that will help accomplish your goals in the same manner that you can videos - with ease :)

    To use the audio only recorder you would use the following setup:

    <ziggeorecorder ziggeo-onlyaudio></ziggeorecorder>

    As you can tell from looking at it it requires that you use v2 of our embedding and it also requires you to use r26 or above.

    I would recommend switching to r27 at this time, however as mentioned above, r26 would work just the same :)

    Of course, please do check it out, try it out and let us know what you think of it and if there is anything that we can be of help with the same :)

    This seems like a very useful custom extension to have. Some users might not have a camera to record video but do have a microphone so they can just add a audio message with the uploader.

    My client is already asking for an audio-only recorder, so this would be a much-welcomed update!

    Are there any updates on this feature? It would be nice to know if the audio-only recorder made it into the next update :)

    Hi everyone,

     

    We are happy to see so many people looking forward to this feature and it is something that we are investing time into so let me give a bit of an insight into what is actually happening with the same.

     

    While we are currently working on capturing audio and video, setting it up to capture just audio is not as easy as it seems.

     

    All of our code, checks and servers expect video. If there is no video data, then the data is not good. As such we need to make changes on all aspects of our system, not just few modifications.

     

    The changes need to be made in dashboard, on end points, different set of servers would be used for the audio only and while code in the background is similar to some extent, a lot of changes need to be made to make it accept just audio.

     

    Looking at the actual implementation plans it shows us that this is in a way a system of its own.

     

    Now this is just to give you a better overlook of the same, and to continue from what I mentioned at the start - we are already working on it, however due to complexity we do not have any specific timeframe set and had to move our planned dates further.

     

    We do expect it to be finalized this year, however we will keep you updated here as we know more.

     

    @Rachel, unfortunately it will not be part of r19 nor r20.

    @Cezar, love the enthusiasm and we are working on it :)

    @Cezar, unfortunately no update that we can share. Most work done and yet to be done is in the back end where most work related to this is, so there is no way to see any updates on that just yet.

    We will of course update everyone here as soon as there is anything that we can share or show :)

    Hey Can you please help me out with the same?

    I am trying to add audio recorder with Ziggeo. But I am unable to do it with the way you suggested above like this

    <ziggeorecorder ziggeo-onlyaudio></ziggeorecorder>

    Please suggest how can I add audio only recorder with react js?

    Here is my code snippets for video recorder -

    And while uploading the mp3 file I am getting this error

    Hi Rashmi,

    I saw that you already got it all working while talking with my colleagues so I will just add a bit of interesting info for everyone that comes here.

    The onlyaudio parameter will basically hide the video by creating a dummy / black background video next to the mic recording.

    This is why you can not upload nor recording or download mp3 files. Only video can be accepted.

    Now the new system that we should be releasing soon is going to have new audio player and recorder that work only with the audio files and microphone. At that point you will be able to upload mp3 files as well as play them back :)

    The release of this is going to be soon and we will be announcing it on our dev updates channels.
