Recording events

In order to turn on recording and listen for recording events, you'll need to be on the Scale plan. There is also a per minute recording fee. Please reach out if you have any questions about Scale.

If you will be recording your calls, you might be interested in monitoring the status of those recordings. Daily's recording events help you monitor that and respond accordingly.

Emitted once recording has started for the output-byte-stream recording type. The data field of the object passed to the recording-data event contains the raw bytes from the MediaRecorder process. When the recording is complete, the finished field of that object, in the final recording-data event, will be set to true.
