Passing Data Variables/Storage
• Once the user submits the video and moves on to the next question, we will store it on our existing databases. Naming the video file in way that is easily retrievable after study has ended (Example: question-userID-ProjectNumber-Date.AVI or MPEG). Data such as ProjectID, UserID and Date would be passed from the survey platform, saved into the media file and stored for easy future retrieval. Our Confirmit development lead has indicated that we can pass the variables in a number of ways. Data can be passed through any script, or to write them in hidden input types, or in a js var, or even calling an object with them as parameters.
• We are requesting a free open source version called Red5 (http://osflash.org/red5). Open source webcam recording software also exist such as http://www.red5-recorder.com/ but we welcome any tool that you have built or will build.
