Recording for a room is enabled when a room is created. In the dashboard, you can select "Local" or "Cloud" recording.
Local recording saves the finished recording as a .webm file on the user's computer. Learn more about transcoding here.
Cloud recordings uploads the recording to your Daily.co account while a meeting is in progress and requires additional upstream bandwidth.
Once a recording mode is selected, it cannot be changed in the dashboard. If you need to change the recording mode, delete and re-create the room.
