Local Recording creates separate raw audio/video tracks per guest. We'll store them on the cloud so can download your recording through your Broadcasts & Recordings page.

Local recording is not supported on mobile devices. (Android/iOS)

How Local Recording Works

Per guest, the video & audio is recorded separately and stored locally on their computer. This recording continues as long as the participant is on stream.

Recordings are saved with the same video and audio input settings the guest chose when accepting your stream invitation. * If the participant changes their video or audio settings, their recording will end and a new recording will immediately start thereafter.

When guests are done with their part of your live stream, you must ensure they press the Leave button, otherwise, you will not be able to download their live stream afterward. Please ask your guests to wait on-screen until prompted that their recording is complete.

Your Melon Studio will display the above, so that it's safe for you to close your window browser and after ending your livestream:

Enable Local Recording

Turn on the option for Local Recording by pressing Settings to the right of your studio and toggling on the option under Output.

Your CPU may be subject to overextension. While Melon is packed with features such as Green Screen, Record, or Local Recording, we recommend you only enable your Video settings or Output settings you will regularly use instead of those you do not use so that your computer is not taxed.  

Things To Keep In Mind:

Ensure guests do not change their video/audio settings during a broadcast since their recording will stop due to changes made mid-stream.
If your recording is interrupted within the first 10-15 seconds of livestream (file size less than 5Mb), it will not be uploaded due to server requirements.
