Controlling Recording Playback through the URL

When added to a Connect archive recording URL, the following suffixed commands will force the prescribed behavior. This may help with projects that include the embedding of archive recording URLs.

  • pbEIOpen=true – the event index would come up opened
  • pbEIOpen=false – the event index would come up closed
  • pbEIOverlay=true – the event index would show up in overlay mode
  • pbEIOverlay=false – the event index would show up in persistent mode
  • pbMode=normal – open in normal playback mode
  • pbMode=edit – open in editing mode
  • archiveOffset=parameter in milliseconds – open to a specific time in the recording

You can modify the URLs along these lines; use an “&” to concatenate multiple parameters.

Every recording will automatically append ?launcher=false&fcsContent=true. You cannot play a recording in the Connect Meeting addin; if you append ?launcher=true, it will toggle to ?launcher=false and open the recording in the browser:

This URL is an example of what a normal URL would look like during recording playback:

https://connect.mydomain.com/recording1/?launcher=false&fcsContent=true&pbMode=normal

To change this to open with the index closed, append pbEIOpen=false like this:

https://connect.mydomain.com/recording1/?launcher=false&fcsContent=true&pbMode=normal&pbEIOpen=false
