Comments Tree™ by VidGage™ enables video comments on your Wordpress blog or website. Now you can offer those who enjoy your content the ability to comment on it with a video comment. They can even comment on a comment, all with video (text too, if they wish)!

Problem:
Existing commenting options on Wordpress sites don’t allow for visual/audio interaction, they don’t allow content viewers the ability to be seen and heard.

Solution: Comments Tree™ by VidGage™ allows post viewers to comment on posts with video comments recorded straight from the post. They can even comment on other comments, all with video. This can be done from a webcam enabled PC, smartphone or tablet.

Video comments keep users on a site longer and email notifications that someone has commented on their comment bring them back more often.

See Version 1.0 sample HERE.

Our Crowdfunding:
This campaign is to help us offset some of the costs of our Comments Tree™ Version 2.0 Wordpress plugin development. Our first version, available now on select websites, doesn’t have the back-end management, mobile functionality or integrated social sharing users want.  All contributors will receive a copy of the 2.0 plugin to use on their site.

What is the Comments Tree 2.0 plugin?
This Comments Tree version 2.0 (CT2.0) WordPress plugin replaces your existing post commenting with video commenting (text commenting also included). Post viewers will be able to, from the post and without ever leaving your site, record and post a video comment on your posts or on another viewers existing comment.

This can be done from a PC and Apple IOS or Android smartphones and tablets.

Key Features & Benefits of Comments Tree Version 2.0

  • Backend management and comment moderation control
  • Mobile recording and viewing of video comments
  • User tagging
  • Increased social sharing
  • Enhanced user reply notification (email alerts when users have a new video/text reply to their comment)
  • Stronger user profiles, allowing users to track the likes/dislikes and views of their video comments
  • Premium “Available On” listing page, listing the websites/blogs that offer video commenting through VidGage™. One pre-development partner is a major media site and will help bring traffic to your site as well.
  • ...and much more! 

How does it work?
For the Wordpress site viewer -
Users simply login with their Facebook, Twitter or Google+ account and either record a video comment in response to your post or in response to another comment. The comments, and comments on comments, are shown in a sortable and manageable “tree” format (see version 1.0 sample here).  Users can comment with text as well; both options are included. Users accessing your website from a mobile phone or tablet? No problem, the 2.0 plugin will work with iphone and android mobile viewing and video camera operation (our core site, VidGage.com already does this). Yes, with CT2.0 viewers of your blog can record a video comment on your posts from their smartphones, tablets or PC!

For the Wordpress site manager -
The Comments Tree™ WordPress commenting plugin is easily downloaded and installed in to your WordPress page. Once installed it will automatically appear on each of your new posts. The hosting, streaming, account management and functionality are all included and operated by VidGage. Each plugin user will be assigned unique codes and backend management to be able to track, moderate and otherwise manage comments.

About VidGage:
Vidgage began as a social media platform offering users the ability to post unique video content and allowing users to reply with video comments. The main website launched in September 2013 at http://VidGage.com Now, we’ve expanded our video commenting to allow our patent pending technology to be used on your website or blog. View our company profile page on Linkedin.

Risks and Challenges:

Vidgage, in partnership with the development team at Launchpad6, have created the platform and functionality to allow for this unique style of commenting.  The basic functionality already exists, this campaign is to offset costs for further development to make this plugin more user friendly and easily managed.  The development team at Luanchpad6 have a fantastic track record, and both VidGage and LP6 plan to continue the on-going development of this service with a 3.0 planned for late 2014. Version 2.0 is estimated to take three months from funding to complete.
