Screen Recorder Example

Here is an example of what a screen recorder looks like - it currently supports Firefox, Chrome and Opera.

Browser Support

Screen Capture is currently supported by Firefox, Chrome and Opera.

  • Firefox: Direct support -- no extensions or plugins required
  • Chrome + Opera: use extension builder located in your application manager

Extension Builder

Chrome and Opera extensions need to be restricted to certain allowed domains and do not support wildcard domains. Therefore, you'll need to generate and submit an extension specifically for your allowed domains within your application management.

The extension builder allows you to generate an extension that will work in both Chrome and Opera. After generating the extension, you'll need to submit your extension to Chrome's WebStore and/or to Opera's Addons Extensions.

Submit Chrome Extension

Here are the steps to submit a Chrome extension:

  1. Generate the extension via our Extension Builder.
  2. Sign Up for the Chrome Web Store and pay the fee (currently 5 USD).
  3. Upload the generated extension zip file.
  4. Edit the meta data on the provided form.
  5. Hit "Publish".
  6. Wait until the extension is "published". It usually does not take more than 30 minutes.
  7. Copy the extension link which is of the following form: chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/EXT-NAME/EXT-ID The link will show you a 404 page for about another 30 minutes. Don't worry about it.
  8. Add these lines to your application setup on your website:
    new ZiggeoApi.V2.Application({
      ...,
      chrome_extension_id: "EXT-ID",
      chrome_extension_install_link: "https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/EXT-NAME/EXT-ID"
    })
