A GET request to /recordings/:id/access-link creates and returns a recording access link.

The valid_for_secs query parameter is optional, and specifies the number of seconds into the future this link will remain valid for. If not provided as a parameter, valid_for_secs defaults to 3600 seconds (one hour).

The response body for a successful request contains an object with two properties: download_link, and expires.

The download_link is a cryptographically signed, time-limited, direct link to a .webm file stored on Amazon S3. (The specific fact of S3 storage should be considered an implementation detail, which might change in the future.)

The expires property is a unix timestamp after which the download_link will no longer work.

This method has no side effects on the server. (That's why it's a GET request rather than a POST request.)
