h2. Overview
_Since 4.0_
_Until 4.2_

{warning}As of January of 2017 the BridgeIt project has been [deprecated|]. As a result, this component has been removed from ICEfaces as of the 4.2 release.{warning}

The mobi:camcorder component renders a button that launches the Bridgeit application on the user's device to record a video and upload it to the server, storing the video as the value of this component.

h2. Getting Started

To start using the Camcorder component, simply place the mobi:camcorder tag inside a form and bind the value to a backing bean property.
<mobi:camcorder id="camcorder"
captureMessageLabel="Video captured"/>
private Map video = new HashMap();
public void setVideo(Map video) { = video;

public Map getVideo() {
return video;

h2. Attributes

{tip:title=TagLib Documentation}This section covers attributes involved in the typical use-cases for this component. For reference, the complete taglib documentation for this component is available [here|].{tip}

The *value* attribute must resolve to an object of type {{java.util.Map<String,Object>}} in the backing bean. Once the video is uploaded, this map will contain the following keys: {{'file'}} will be mapped to the {{File}} object representing the video, {{'contentType'}} will be mapped to a string that indicates the content type of the file, and {{'relativePath'}} will be mapped to a string containing the relative path of the file in the server.

The *buttonLabel* specifies the label of the button before it is activated.

The *captureMessageLabel* specifies the label to be displayed on the button on a successful video capture.
