DragonDrop is a feature rich, multi-institution enabled, web-based application for capturing and publishing rich media for web access. It significantly simplifies the process of getting audio, video, text and other rich media formats into highly compressed and streaming formats suitable for web delivery.
- Use the built-in Camtasia Relay recorder to capture webcam video and/or audio for on-the-fly podcasting/videocasting.
- Convert content into one to six output formats simultaneously
- Track encoding and publishing progress through the Tracking tab
- Add metadata to all content, including title, descriptions, tags and comments
- Create playlists as content collections and freely add, change, or delete content from playlists as needed
- Share playlist content with others
- Secure playlist content via password or by setting temporary viewing access
- Provide access to content via secure URL and via RSS syndication
- Search for content through the use of metadata associated with a playlist or item
- Create surrogate users who can act on your behalf
- DragonDrop performs best in the latest browsers.
- DragonDrop launches in a separate window. You need to allow pop-ups from this site.
- This interface must only be used with a broadband (DSL/Cable/LAN) connection. Wireless users should be aware that signal strength and speed may be limited and/or vary by location.
- Do not attempt uploading files over 2GB in size.
- Do not use special characters in the filename (e.g., %, ?, /).
- If you are using a camera that produces an MP4 file, you may need to use HandBrake, a free program that encodes the file properly for use with DragonDrop. Find out more at the How to Use HandBrake page.
