Room owners can record a meeting if a room has recording enabled.
Local recording saves the finished recording as a .webm file on the user's computer.
Cloud recording uploads the file to your Daily.co account while a meeting is in progress and requires additional upstream bandwidth.

How to record a call
Starting a recording
In a video call, click the Record button in the bottom left.
You'll see a notification that your recording is starting after a 5-second countdown.
Other participants in your meeting will be notified that a recording is starting, and a banner will indicate a recording is in progress.
Stopping a recording
Click the Stop Recording button in the banner at the bottom of your screen.
For local recordings, this immediately stops your recording and downloads the recording to your computer.
For cloud recordings, this stops the recording and finishes the upload process.
Caution: Closing the browser without stopping a recording may result in an incomplete recording!
The recording is saved as a .webm file. To play this file, you may need to transcode it. Learn more about transcoding here: How to transcode a .webm file
