Video Recording -- Is this allowed?

Hello!

I’m an undergraduate running a psychology study for my senior thesis project. Some questions at the end of the study will require participants to perform short, simple movements based on a series of movements from a familiarization video. I was going to run this study in person, but that will not be possible now with COVID-19-related school shutdowns. Are webcam recordings possible and/or allowed with PsychoPy? What about MTurk? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Mica

Webcam access is planned for experiments on pavlova but unfortunately has not yet been implemented.

Webcam access is possible locally, using custom Python code snippets:

I’m not sure, but it might also be possible to implement this by inserting some custom JavaScript code for online studies? That would require someone who knows what they are doing with JavaScript/HTML5, though…
