Record Your Streams as MP4
This feature is optional and will record individual clips of the base or of the transcoded live streams allowing your community to watch them later on-demand.
To record your streams, follow the steps outlined below:
1. Log in to the Universal CDN Control Panel at my.ucdn.com.
2. Navigate to the Livestreaming tab located at the top left corner.
3. In case a Live Streaming zone was not yet created, click on the ‘New Live stream‘ button:
Then follow the instructions from the main Live Streaming setup post.
In case a Live Streaming zone was already created, click on the cogwheel icon next to the Live Streaming zone.
4. Locate the Recordings section:
4.2.1 Keep copy of Base Stream as MP4: If selected, the CDN system will automatically upload the Base live stream session in your UCDN Storage in MP4 format segments.
Click here for more information on to create a storage.
4.2.2 Target Duration per uploaded file: The minimum length setting for a clip that can be stored on the UCDN storage is 30 minutes.
If the duration of your live stream session is less than 30 minutes, as soon as the session ends, the system will automatically upload the stream in your cloud storage. The maximum duration is 6 hours.
5. Click on the “Save Changes” button.
Once activated, the system will start recording the Live streams and upload them in the specified storage container in MP4 format segments every 30 minutes since the beginning of the stream, or since it has been activated.
If the duration of a live stream session is less than 30 minutes, as soon as the session ends, the system will automatically upload the record to your storage container.
To deactivate this feature, simply uncheck the box next to “Keep a copy of the Base stream as MP4” or next to “Keep a copy as MP4” and click on the “Save Changes” button.
