You can start a live review session in Dropbox Replay to review audio and video files with collaborators in real-time. During a live review session, you can comment directly on the frame, as well as see what others are commenting. If you start a live review session for a video file, you and your collaborators can also draw on the frame to highlight visual elements and see what others are drawing. Anyone in the live review session can control audio or video playback.
To start a live review session in Replay:
A note will appear at the bottom of your screen, notifying you that a live session has begun.
To share your file and invite collaborators to your live review session:
Anyone with permission will be able to draw on the video and provide comments using the right sidebar.
You can see how many people are currently in your live review session in the top-right corner, indicated by [x] watching.
You can add comments on the audio or video file during a live review session. To do this:
You’ll see your comment appear on the timeline at the timeframe you selected. You can also reply to comments by clicking Reply, edit comments by clicking “⁝” (vertical ellipsis) and then Edit, or resolve comments by clicking the circle icon next to a comment.
If you’re reviewing a video, you can draw directly on the video and post your drawings as comments. To do this:
Once you post your drawing, you’ll see a new comment appear at the specified timeframe on the timeline. The comment will be annotated with a pencil icon in the Comments section to signify that it’s a drawing.
Note: Collaborators can leave a live review session at any time by clicking Leave in the top-right. They can still post comments and drawings outside of a live review session as long as they have comment permissions for the file.
