You asked, and we delievered part 2! Once again, based on feedback from the Tape community, Tape macOS 1.7.0 brings:

🟠 A handsome circular webcam overlay - which you can resize and move!
📸 You can now select which webcam to use for your Tapes 


(direct Tape users can update now, Setapp users, its coming!)

Fix for connection issues

Some users have reported issues logging in particularly those in exotic wonderful places like China and Russia, but we've had reports from users in the western world too. Sorry for the trouble 🙈!

This update should fix connecting to Tape, when behind a proxy, firewall or VPN.

As always, you can reach me on @try_tape and on the Help Site

Keep the feedback (and encouragement!) coming! You can reach me on @try_tape and on the Help Site

Whats next?

- Coming very soon: Dashboard UI updates




⏯ Better player & Bug fixes

HI Tapers,

Been a while, but rest assured I'm back at adding fixes/improvements to Tape and the dashboard.

I've just updated the UIs that fixed a couple of annoying bugs:

- Improved video player on your Tape share links.
This detects whether you've recording with audio or now, and doesn't mute the video by default.

- Fixed markdown links for videos
Ooops! 🙈. Markdown links/embeds are now correct.

There's some exciting new stuff in the works that I can't wait to share with you soon!

Feedback and comments always welcome, reach out to me on twitter

Happy Taping!

🆕 Tape macOS Released!

Happy new year Tapers!

I'm very happy to announce that the new macOS Tape app is live 🎉🎉🎉! You can now record any window on your screen, with the same great experience as the command line.

Remote working is hard enough as it is, and Tape gives you an extra tool in your toolbox to supercharge your collaboration (and cancel those "catch up" calls).

If you have any feedback, feel free to reach out through the chat widget on https://help.tape.sh or on discord https://discord.gg/SaVFydc

Discord community

Hello Tape users! 

I've just setup a new discord community, would love if you joined in on the conversation, and help improve and guide Tape.sh to where you'd like to see it go. Invitation link here -> https://discord.gg/SaVFydc

Look forward to hearing how you use Tape, and how we can make your experience even better

Best,

Danny




Introducing Device Framing




The latest version of the CLI introduces device framing by default. Your tapes now get framed in a shiny device. Give your release notes or end of sprint that little extra ooomph!

Just run npm update -g tape-cli or if you used brew brew upgrade tape-cli

Tips 🚩:

- Prefer your tapes without a device? --noframe will skip framing. You can also modify it in the new settings prompt using `tape config`

- Want to choose your frame? Add the --selectframe flag, and the cli will prompt you to choose different frames that match your device's resolution


NEW Framing Existing Screenshots and Videos

tape frame YOUR_EXISTING_FILE.mp4 will frame your existing video (if it matches our known resolutions) and upload it to Tape.sh

This might be useful for example, if you want to frame a screenrecording from a real iOS device.


improvement New Settings

tape-cli now lets you configure more settings
