Few questions about the recording


Level 1


I'm intersting in adding recording/playback option to my webcam application and i have few questions regarding the recording functionality:

1. My webcam app is using P2P connection, will the recording stop my P2P?

2. Will the recording create some latency in the audio/video?

3. can i change the quality of the recording?

4. is there away to encrypt the archived zip file?

1) yes, currently recording is always hub&spoke (and we don't have a real plan to support recording with p2p since it would require a substantial amount of changes in the server-side application)

2) no, recording is independent from streaming

3) no - I believe recordings are stored at the quality they are streamed. In theory you could re-encode audio and video stream to a lower quality for playback and repackage the zip file (assuming re-encoding the stream doesn't change the internal timestamps)

4) currently not. We are simply using the "zip" command (on *nix) to archive the files so in theory we could add the password/encryption option but that would require for you to store the required password on our servers and for us to pass it on the command-line making the process not very secure anyway.

Any specific reason to keep your archives on your servers encrypted ?
