Oh, c’est étonnant @mahyarahimi :thinking:

J’ai transmis l’information à nos ingénieurs. On t’écrit dès qu’on a trouvé la solution :slightly_smiling_face: !


Bonjour @mahyarahimi !

En effet, on a trouvé un problème :bulb:!
Tu devrais pouvoir ajouter tes shorts avec la prochaine version de l’application.
Comme ça, tu as le temps pour en préparer plein :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes: !

A bientôt :wave: !


Hi there! I’m having trouble creating a new Short video. When I click on the ‘+’ button and an option after, the loading circle appears but nothing happens :pleading_face:


Hi @inesalanah! Thanks for writing us. We’re sorry about this problem! Our engineers are aware of it and are currently working on a solution. We’ll publish a new version of the Chatterbug app soon, that should fix the issue, please watch out for it!

We can’t wait to see your Short! :slight_smile:


Thanks Janina & Chatterbug engineers! :relaxed:


I have the new version but still I am a klutz with the filmaking!! :clown_face:

Don’t worry @pennybug, it’s a bit like learning a new language! It’s super hard in the beginning, but you learn through mistakes, and step by step you get more comfortable with it! :muscle:

Happy filming!

Please Toby or somebody. I’ll never work it out. I need sb to film a walk through. I’ve made about 20 attempts and had to reset at best. Mostly the whole site folds and I must log on again. I have most peobs with Laurena’s chantez en canon. I can’t even play back Amandine’s practice. The screen goes black and the site shuts down.

Can the engineers put the old shorts back on the site while we are waiting for the problems to be ironed out?

Hi @pennybug!
(Sorry for the latish response, but I was visiting family in Germany over the weekend.)

A walk through sounds like a great idea! I will pass this on to the chatterbug staff! :raised_hands:

I’m also happy to let you know that the problems with shorts should be fixed by now. If you still have problems, let me know and I will forward them to the engineers.

But first, download the latest version of the app and try again. That should do the trick. :thinking:

I am on the latest version of Chatterbug . I updated 2 weeks ago or more. I’m using a Samsung J3 smartphone, but I also have probs on my new Amazon Fire tab.
-I need walkthrough on Editing shorts. I seem to be able to do the first stage and have already filmed one.
-tutor practices of shorts make the site fold. Esp all Amandine’s
-other minor niggles eg the onscreen instructions and start / pause buttons mean I can’t see the script and Laurèna is wonderful but inaudible at times esp in practice shorts with another student filling the gaps. Student is audible Laurena VERY quiet and echoey.

Hi @pennybug where are you getting stuck exactly on the shorts creation?

Regarding the issues, I have passed these along to our engineers. Hopefully they will have a solution soon!

It varies. Sometimes it’s impossible to Inaudible, invisible content on the originating short. Sometimes I try to watch other practicers and the app folds completely, so, often, I don’t know what is expected of me linguistically. Once I made a short. It’s there on my profile, such as it is. I tried to edit the original but succeeded only in wiping the bit I wished to keep. That last one is presumably because I don’t know the exact practical result of pressing the editing icons .
