Room recording

Room recordings and room video modes

The way the recording works will depend on the selected room video mode:

  • Pre-recorded: the session will not be recorded since it consists of a recorded file.
  • Control room: the recording will start once the room host joins the room. And regardless of the layout chosen, the recording will be displayed according to the webRTC provider: Focus Mixed while using Agora.io and Space between if using Tokbox.
  • Videoconferencing or Videoconferencing Pro: the recording will start once the first presenter joins the room within the session start date and time. Similar to the Control Room, the recording of the session will depend on the webRTC provider. The Gallery / Speaker view toggle doesn’t do anything to the recording: it will be displayed as Focus Mixed while using Agora.io and Space between if using Tokbox.
  • RTMP Streaming: the recording starts the second you start the streaming on the third-party software.
  • External Link: since this session happens outside of the InEvent platform, we are not responsible for its recording.

Our recordings are stored on Amazon Web Services (AWS).
