Use the following information as a guide to configure the features of custom publishing.
Table of Contents
Use Custom Uploading, rather than basic uploading, where a custom uploading API is required and when you need to create your own user interface (UI).
You can design the UI with additional controls not contained in the basic uploader. This allows the user to enter metadata through any configured web-interface control (for example, to input additional information that is uploaded with the recording).
App Display properties allow you to customize branding and message strings in the screen recorder and video editor.
The added optional input fields POST back when requesting the upload URL. For a custom upload, create a Java jar file with code that implements the Custom Publish interface.
In the jar file you create, account for:
The following steps outline the custom publishing process:
The following is an example structure of a custom publishing implementation:
CustomPublishExampleSrc | appDisplay.properties | frame_icon.png| publish_customupload_16.png | publish_customupload_24.png | publish_customupload_48.png | \---com \---screencastomatic \---custompublishCustomPublishImpl.java
The sizes for the 96-dpi png icons are as follows:
We will provide example files to you.
We will provide example files to you.
The following properties can be set in the appDisplay.properties file:
This property contains the title displayed on the window for the application.
This property contains the title displayed at the top of the window when viewing the preview after recording.
som.*.app.preview.title=Upload to Mybrand
This property enables and disables the Show Draw and Zoom tool on the recorder.
This property enables and disables the Show Edit button to offer editing after recording.
This property contains the message displayed after upload is complete. (Note the TITLE_REPLACE which we will replace using the setDoneMessage in the CustomPublishImpl as an example that you can update this message dynamically or replace the complete message. )
som.*.app.upload.message=\ <div style="font-size:17pt; text-align:left;">\ Uploaded Video:<br>\ <b>TITLE_REPLACE</b>\ <br><br>\ You can set up a custom message here and also:\ <ul>\ <li>Choose if you want to show the link below.<br><br></li>\ <li>Choose if you want to launch a url when the <b>Continue</b> button below is pressed so you can direct the user to a playback page or any other url.</li>\ </ul>\ <br>For example, this app is set to go to Screencast-O-Matic.com when you click <b>Continue</b>\ </div>
When this property is set to
true, the app deletes the local recording after a successful upload. When this property is set to
false, the app does not remove the local recording.
This property enables and disables the Show a link and copy button for the URL returned after upload is complete.
This property provides an optional link to launch after the user clicks the button when upload is complete. Omit this setting if no page needs to launch. Otherwise, set this property to a URL or to the string "gotoplayback," which launches the URL you returned after the upload is complete.
This property sets the subdirectory to store your users’ recordings. The default location where this subdirectory is created is Documents. The following example creates Documents\Screen Recorder, and adds a Recordings directory with a subdirectory for each recording stored on the computer (Documents\Screen Recorder\Recordings\individual recording folders).
This property sets the name shown in the app. For example, "Upload to Mybrand."
som.*.app.custompublish.name="Upload to Mybrand"
This property specifies the class that you provide to implement the com.screencastomatic.CustomPublish interface.
