In this article, you'll learn where to find your session recordings and how to manage them. You will have options to hide recordings, delete, crop clips, upload more recordings, and more.

Locate The Session Recordings

To find your session recordings, open your session for editing and select the Recording tab. Note that this tab will say "Broadcasting" if the session is still in the future. Once the session is over, you should be able to access the Recordings tab.

The latest recording will be on top of the list, with the recording name indicating the date and time when it was recorded. You can also see the duration of each recording.

Recording Menu Options

When the session ends, the Broadcasting tab will change to the Recording tab, where you'll see other options for your session recordings. Note that you can access the recordings and other recording options if the session is already in the past.

  • Upload another recording to a session MP4, MPEG or MOV up to 1GB)

  • Change the order of the recordings

  • Preview the recording

  • Download the recording file

  • Trim the video file and save it as a new clip

  • Change the recording name and add a description

  • Delete the recording file

  • Hide the recording from attendee view

You will have several clips if the broadcast is stopped and started again, so even your tests in that same session will be listed in the Recording tab if you recorded them. The recordings that are set as visible in the list are what your attendees can watch when they click the View Recording button from the event hub.

View the Recording as an Attendee

To view the recording after it has ended, attendees must click the View Recording button from the session in the event hub. If the session has only 1 visible recording, attendees will see the video right away. For sessions with multiple recordings, attendees will see a pop-up after they click the view recording button, where they can select which of the recordings they want to watch.

Once inside the session, they should see the Recordings tab, where they can select other video clips to play.
