Java Webcam Video and Picture Capture

In our rails application we enable users to submit multiple types of feedback in a project AND create helpful training documents and procedures. We would

like to add the additional functionality of adding webcam videos and screenshots as a part of a submission. Please note, that this is webcam functionality and not desktop capturing.

Functionality is as follows:

VIDEO FUNCTIONALITY

1. User is using our system to enter textual item.

2. User clicks a link to "add webcam video" which launches java applet.

3. User is presented with an interface that allows them to choose webcam, microphone, click record AND where they can see a small live preview window of their webcam footage.

4. User clicks record, webcam video starts recording. If microphone is specified, audio starts recording too. VIDEO IS LIMITED TO 1 MINUTE IN LENGTH AND AUTOMATICALLY STOPS RECORDING ONCE LIMIT IS REACHED.

5. Once the user is done, they click stop.

6. Video is compressed to .h264, audio is compressed to mp3, and user is presented with a video preview, which automatically starts playing.

7. At this point, user can either click "discard" which will delete the temporary preview and take them back to the recording interface OR

7.1 User can click "publish" which will upload the compressed video to our S3 bucket and insert a video preview image into the web based text editor they were originally using on our website.

WEBCAM PICTURE FUNCTIONALITY

1. User is using our system to enter textual item.

2. User clicks a link to "add webcam picture" which launches java applet.

3. User is presented with an interface that allows them to choose webcam and click "snap picture" AND where they can see a small live preview window of their webcam footage.

4. User clicks "snap picture", webcam records individual frame.

6. Image is compressed to .jpg and user is presented with a preview.

7. At this point, user can either click "discard" which will delete the temporary preview and take them back to the snapshot interface OR

7.1 User can click "publish" which will upload the image to our S3 bucket and insert a thumbnail preview image into the web based text editor they were originally using on our website.

VIDEO PLAYBACK FUNCTIONALITY

1. When user is viewing a feedback item/process that contains a video, browser should first attempt to use HTML 5 as playback interface, and then fallback to flash if html support is not available.

Both video and picture functionality are part of the same applet and should not be done as separate applications. You may take liberties in combining interface features (like adding a button that allows the user to choose between recording video or a picture).

YOU MUST BE FAMILIAR WITH:

- Java

- Robots Class for taking screenshots.

- Java Media Framework with .h264 codec (for usage of webcam/microphone devices and compression of video to .h264, and uploading video to server).

- Deploying java applets that require system level access (security/jar signing).

- Ruby on Rails (For website and accessing the uploaded video).

System functionality will be provided in the form of use cases. All use cases must pass, and applet must work in specified browsers in order for this contract to be considered complete.

Applet must work in following browsers:

- Chrome (Mac AND Windows)

- Firefox (Mac AND Windows)

- Safari

- IE 9, IE 10

This is a small project for the first iteration of this feature. We have plans to expand the functionality of this feature which will involve further projects with the hired developer.

Please include in your proposal an outline of the steps you would take to implement this project, and any considerations that you might have.

We are a start up that's building tools for information organization, feedback, and collaboration in the enterprise.
