Recordings enable you to convert live video from 100ms rooms into long-lived video assets. 100ms can generate different types of recordings:
Recording modes for video conferencing
- Track recordings - Record each audio and video track of each peer as separate assets.
- Stream recordings - Record each peer's media streams (audio and video tracks combined) as a single asset.
- Composite recordings - Record as a composed asset combining media tracks of all peers in the room

Recording a livestream
Live stream recording enables capturing a continuous feed of audio or video in real-time during a live broadcast event. It focuses on low latency for interactivity over post-production flexibility. 100ms offers two recording formats:
- Video-On-Demand (VOD): Generated HLS file enables re-playable video with adaptive bitrates. Can be unzipped or zipped when storing.
- Per Layer MP4 Files: Records separate MP4 videos for chosen resolution layers. Gives access to distinct raw footage files.
In summary, VOD recording is better for on-demand playback while Per Layer MP4's allow remixing footage. Choice depends on needs. But 100ms enables recording live streams in multiple ways maximizing flexibility.
