Why is the embedding not showing up?

If the embedding is not showing up, chances are that you are running your website directly from your local computer’s file system.

While it is of course possible to test our embeddings on your local machine, it is required to run your embeddings within a webserver like Apache or Node (or any other webserver).

Probably the fastest way to fire up a super basic webserver is to use PHP from the command line. It serves up the current directory at localhost:8080.

php -S localhost:8080 .

In other words, the address showing up in your browser needs to start with either https, and not with file.

  • Please note that due to security reasons browser vendors have agreed to not allow HTTP protocol to be used for video or audio recordings.

You can also host your website online to test our embeddings. Here are a couple of options:

Dropbox Public Folder
GitHub Pages
Firebase
Heroku
Amazon Webservices

Interested in have a way to test out our system without any server or using other platforms? Some basic tests can be done using our Hosted Pages.

They allow you to add your own HTML and JavaScript codes and to open the page within your browser. All you need to start is to sign up for our service or log in if you already have the account.
