Record Your Event
Recording your event to generate a replay is helpful if you want to allow your registrants to watch the event even though they couldn't attend on time or if you want to use it afterward for an on-demand event. You can record your entire event, the duration of which depends on your subscription. Livestorm allows you to do this in several ways.
The recording will automatically pause if there's no one on stage, no media/screen/pdf shared for 30 seconds. It's resumed right away as soon as someone is on stage again or a media/screen/pdf is shared.
Your replay is not necessarily what you recorded during the event. If you want to replace the original replay of your event, don't hesitate to look at our Event Replay article. 👀

Automatically Record Your Event
Your event is recorded by default.
The recording starts automatically when you click on Start event in your event room. It ends when you click on End event if you don't pause the recording before.
The setting will apply to all the event sessions.
Make sure that the 'Automatically record upon event start' box is ticked in your event Settings > Recording & on-demand:

Disable the Automatic Recording of Your Event
If you don't want to record the event automatically, untick the 'Automatically record upon event start' box. If you finally want to record the event, you can change the automatic recording setting later on by ticking the box again.
You have to change this setting before the beginning of the session.
If you do it after you start the session you want to record, you can manually record your event directly in the room when you're live.
Manually Control Recording in the Room
If you have disabled the automatic recording of your event, you can still decide to record it once you're in the room.
You will have to do it for each session you want to record.
Here is the process to follow:
