Frequently asked questions

What is local recording, and how does it work?

Local recording allows you to capture and save a copy of your livestream as it's happening. With local recording, you can record your camera and screenshare, and download the recording file (in MP4 format with audio) after your streaming session ends. Each participant's camera and screenshare will be recorded if they're on the screen and are unmuted.
To use local recording, simply enable the feature before going live, and make sure all participants stay in the studio until their recordings have been uploaded.

How do I enable local recording, and can I record without going live?

After you click the "Go live now" button to start your streaming session, a popup dialog will appear. Simply toggle on the local recording feature in the dialog, and then click the "Go live" button to begin your session. Note that currently local recording won't work without an active livestream, and you won't be able to record offline or beforehand.

What if I have a poor network connection?
Will local recording still work?

Yes! Local recording is not affected by poor network connections since the recording is saved locally to your browser before being uploaded to the cloud. However, you still need a stable network connection for streaming to work correctly. Therefore, we advise you to disable local recording if your network connection is challenging to ensure the quality of livestream.

Will local recordings take up storage space on my computer?

Local recordings will be temporarily stored on your browser before being uploaded to the cloud. Once the recordings are uploaded, the local files will be deleted automatically. However, while the recordings are being stored locally, they will take up space on your computer's hard drive.

Can I download the mixed local video file, or just the audio file?

You can choose to download either the mixed video and audio file (in MP4 format) or the audio file (in WAV format) separately.

What if my guest accidentally leaves before
the upload is complete?

If a guest leaves before their local recording is uploaded, they can return to app.opus.pro/upload/your-studio-id (replace "your-studio-id" with your actual studio ID) to upload their recording later.
Important Notice: Please do not open multiple tabs of our uploading page at the same time. This may cause a race condition, resulting in unexpected errors or data loss.

What are some common reasons for local recording
upload not working?

Make sure you enable the feature before going live, and ask all participants to stay in the studio after live until their recordings have been uploaded. Also note that this feature doesn't work or work well when livestream sessions are greater than 2 hours.

How do I access and download my recorded files?

After your streaming session ends, the local recording files will be uploaded to the cloud. To access and download them, you can either:

  • Click the "View recordings" button in the recording panel to go to the recording download page, where you can select the recording you want to download.

  • Go to the videos section on your dashboard, and select the livestream session the recordings correspond to. Then, you will be directed to the recording download page.

On the recording download page, you can choose to download the mixed video and audio file (in MP4 format) or the audio file (in WAV format) separately. Simply click the download button next to the file format you want, and the file will be downloaded to your computer.

Does the extra camera angle have its own recording?

Yes! Opus will record a separate video and audio file of all video feeds.

Why can't I open the downloaded files with Quicktime player?

QuickTime player has some compatibility issues with certain video file formats. It's not very compatible with our recording files. We recommend trying a different video player.
