Details

Recorded file properties

File format - WebM.

File Codec: H264 or VP8 for video; OPUS or PCM for audio.

Usually up to the browser.

Default bitrate will record at around 6000-kbps, but it will still prompt still for value if not set.

The Director of a room will be notified if a user is recording and they can start/stop the recording. The Director of a room can trigger the record function remotely, even if the &record parameter has not been added.

The video/audio will be saved in real-time to the guest's local download folder.

Do not close the browser or turn off the computer while it is recording; you may lose the file or have a partial capture.

The recording should stop automatically when the guest hangs-ups manually.

It will automatically capture with Stereo audio and echo cancellation off, if available. You can use https://obs.ninja/convert to convert from WebM file formats to opus or wav file formats, without transcoding and without downloads.
