Just had a question on how to best handle the playback of recorded sessions with very large file sizes. When recording long sessions with many LCCS clients, the zip file we are receiving is rather large. When our playback app seeks to replay these sessions, it takes the LCCS media servers enough time to download the files from the repository server as to make playback in this fashion impractical. If I understand correctly, the media servers will cache the recording, but only for the duration of the room session + ~5 minutes after the playback "room" is vacated (so every time the playback is called when there is not someone already viewing the playback, it must be fetched anew from the repository).
So, do you have any advice on how to best do playback for large recordings?
Your understanding of how the recording playback works is fairly accurate.
That said, we have never encountered as severe of a dowload issue as "to make playback in this fashion impractical." Could you be more specific? In particular, how large are your recording zip files, and how long does it take to download them (or rather how long does it take for you to see playback activity on the client)?
