Original post :

I released video module 7.x-2.1-alpha2 version on 11th of Sep. This major version completely redesign the video module and its core, I'm the only one worked on this release and seems our co-maintainers (6.x) had no time to contribute code to the 7.x yet. I'm very very happy about the progress of downloading and using video module. It has over 10,500+ usage now.

In this article I'm going to examine some new features added to the video module.

Create Video node programmatically


I would like to ask for some help regarding the topic mentioned in the title. My objective is to record a video through a webcam and pass it somehow to the Video module and create a Video node out of it.
