Threads and replies
Comments are divided into threads and replies. A thread is the main comment and can be posted on a specific timecode or not (see next). Users can post as many threads as they need.
A thread is represented with a light gray dot below the player's timeline. By clicking on the dot, a thread preview pops up. In the case of overlapping threads, the pop-up shows a list of the overlapping threads.
NOTE: depending on media length, one single dot can represent more than one comment.
Replies are submitted to a thread. If a thread is posted on a specific timecode, all the replies will refer to that timecode (see next).
Once a comment is posted, it can be edited or deleted on the comments feed tab by clicking on the options menu on each comment.
Comments on specific timecodes
To post a comment on a specific timecode of a video clip, browse your video to the desired frame, type a message in the input widget on the bottom of the page, likely add graphics, and post the comment.
If you need to post generic comments to a video clip before posting, deactivate the clock icon next to the input field.
Drawing on frames and pictures
Users can add graphics to highlight portions of a frame on each thread and reply. To the left of the input widget, find a brush icon to expand or collapse the drawing tools.
Drawing tools include basic geometric figures, colors, and thickness control. Once a figure has been drawn, fine-tuning is allowed by selecting the pointer tool.
Once posted, to delete a drawing, delete the relative comment.
Navigation between comments on specific timecode
Users can navigate the comments over a video clip in three ways:
- by clicking on a comment in the comments feed tab, the player follows
- by clicking on the grey dots on the timeline, the comments feed follows
- by using the keyboard shortcuts G and H
The entire room's audience is notified when a new thread is posted. When a reply to a thread is posted, the original commenter and the other repliers only are notified.
