How to Record a Video Chat

Booth Hosts can record their video chat session by clicking a Record button. The recording is saved onto their hard drive.

Starting a recording

After starting your video chat, click the Record button.
Record Button

You'll see a 5-second countdown before your recording begins.
Other participants in your meeting will be notified that a recording is starting, and a banner will indicate a recording is in progress.

Stopping a recording

Click the Stop Recording button in the banner at the bottom of your screen.
This immediately stops your recording and downloads the recording to your computer.

Caution: Closing the browser without stopping a recording may result in an incomplete recording!
The recording is saved as a .webm file. To play this file, you may need to transcode it (to .mp4, for example). There are many ways to convert a .webm file. Here are a couple of ways:

CloudConvert: Browser software that offers free and paid plains
Handbrake: A free app for Windows and macOS
Most video streaming services like Vimeo and YouTube will accept and transcode .webm files. All you have to do is upload them there.
