- Slide Area (Remote Desktop)

- Chat

- Videos

- Podium Video

- Audio

ISL Recording Player - Mac OSX, Linux 32bit and Linux 64bit versions available [ISLRECPLAYER-4] More


Initial release for Linux 32bit, Linux 64 bit and MacOSX 10.4 was released with ISL Recording Player 3.0.0.

ISL Recording Player - Bookmarks navigation for ISL Groop recordings [ISLRECPLAYER-11] More


ISL Groop recordings can contain bookmarks. Each bookmark consists of a time created and text comment.

Navigation to PREVIOUS/NEXT bookmark can be done with PREVIOUS/NEXT buttons in player.

NOTE: These PREVIOUS/NEXT buttons work different for ISL Light recordings, they were created in the past for switching among recordings recorded on the same day (in the same session).

ISL Recording Player - Redesigned export dialog [ISLRECPLAYER-10] More


Export dialog was removed from Settings dialog. Exporting settings must now be set separately after you click on Export.

User can there change the default Layout, video resolution, exported streams and quality...

ISL Recording Player - Implemented global settings storage [ISLRECPLAYER-9] More


Settings are now stored globally and are remembered after you exit or restart the program.

User can now choose only between playback and export settings (User usually works with only 1 recording at the same time).

The settings can be reset by clicking the RESET button in Settings dialog.

ISL Recording Player - Improved speed by indexing whole ISL Light file when it is opened [ISLRECPLAYER-8] More


ISL Groop recordings already contain indexes. This is done when the recording is being recorded. However ISL Light recordings haven't yet got same indexes recorded, so these ISL Light recordings must be indexed in ISL Recording Player before playing it.

In the past, indexing was done relatively to the current time position by creating so called checkpoints (restorepoints) in player. In this version indexing is done entirely sequentially from the beginning till the end. After indexing process reaches 100%, these recording can be played smoothly from any time slider position.

ISL Recording Player - Improved chat widget behaviour and full screen appearance [ISLRECPLAYER-6] More


Chat is now being expandable and not fixed size anymore as it was in the past.

In "full screen mode", the controls animation is now different (it is resizing the recording area instead of covering it).

ISL Recording Player - Chat stream cache [ISLRECPLAYER-1] More


Exporting of ISL Light recording now also creates a text file named isr_chat_cache.txt, which contains the chat stream cache.

After dragging dock widget with mouse, docking it again wasn't possible with mouse release.
