A DELETE request to /recordings/:id deletes a recording.

If the requested recording is found and deleted, this API endpoint returns two fields in the response body: deleted (set to true), and the recording id.

If the recording is not found (and, therefore, cannot be deleted) the endpoint returns an HTTP 404 error.

This request does not delete recordings from any custom S3 buckets configured by the customer for storage. If the recording is stored in a custom S3 bucket, the DELETE request only deletes the reference to it from Daily's database. The API response will contain the S3 bucket of the storage location, enabling the caller to provide their own logic to delete the recording from their S3 bucket.
