Hi! I would like to be able to download recorded video file WITHOUT stopping transcoder. I believe it is possible by creating two trancoders - first one ingests stream and pushes it to second one which records it. In that case I can stop second transcoder whenever I want and download recorder file without stopping first transcoder. Does anyone know to configure such system?
Why not use either recording with segments or use the Split Recording method? See https://www.wowza.com/docs/how-to-record-live-streams-wowza-streaming-engine or https://www.wowza.com/docs/stream-recording-query-examples#splitrecord
Another option might be to use the nDVR recording API. With this you can use the nDVR files to create recordings that match your start/end times requested and it shouldn’t affect the transcoder as it’s running:
