Restart recording to a new file

Recordings are automatically saved to a file and a new recording is started when:

  • The recording reaches the configured time or size limit.
  • The channel or recorder name is changed.
  • Changes are made to the stream if recording and streaming the channel.

You can manually force a recording that's in progress to save to a file and continue recording in a new file from that point forward without any loss of content. This is useful if you need to download a recording since you cannot download recordings that are in progress.
