Introduction

You can record the audio of all the users in a call and save it on the client for future replays.

The Agora Native SDK supports recording the audio of all the users in a channel and saves the recording into one file in the following formats:

  • WAV: Large file (lossless compression)
  • AAC: Small file (lossy compression)

Implementation

Before proceeding, ensure that you implement a basic call or live broadcast in your project. See Start a Call or Start a Live Broadcast for details.

To start audio recording, call the startAudioRecording method after joining a channel.

// Start audio recording.
rtcEngine.startAudioRecording(
  // Local path of the recording file specified by the user, including the filename and format.
    "path/to/file",
    // Audio quality of the recording: LOW, MEDIUM, and HIGH.
    AUDIO_RECORDING_QUALITY_HIGH 
);

// Stop audio recording.
rtcEngine.stopAudioRecording();

Considerations

  • Start the recording after joining a channel.
  • The recording automatically stops if the local user leaves the channel.
