    Hi Jeremy,

    I think there might be a bug or something wrong with the InitiateRecorder command. It was working perfectly fine until today, as it only used to ask for permission to allow recording from the microphone. For some reason now it also asks for permission to video record when I haven’t changed anything in my experiment script to indicate that I require video recording. I clicked yes just to see what happens, and now my camera just automatically comes on when my experiment reaches the trial with InitiateRecorder.

    Is there something I can add to my script to disable video recording?

    Thank you!

    Hi,

    The MediaRecorder element will capture video unless it is explicitly restricted to audio: https://doc.pcibex.net/mediarecorder/

    If there is a newMediaRecorder command in your script that does not explicitly specify "audio" (ie neither newMediaRecorder("audio") nor newMediaRecorder("myrecorder", "audio")) then PennController will determine that you need to capture video and accordingly require access to the participant’s webcam
