Use case of stream merging - meeting recordings

Question

Hello Team AntMedia,

   I have a use case to record meeting/event. In my use case two or more users (max 4 users) discuss a topic. In this case 4 streams are created. Now I want to record these conversations and access for offline viewing.

On antmedia side all these are recorded in 4 different mp4 files. We want to merge thexe together. It can be done in two ways:
1. on server side we may use ffmpreg to merge but synchronization can be tricky here.
2. Merge stream on client and send as another stream which will be recorded.

I tried option 2  but the CPU usage spikes up.

I want to get the opinion from antmedia on the feedback of which approach can be helpful.

Thanks
Nagendra

Agree. In fact, this will help the client to get better CPU usage.  In my case user can do a screen share as well. So when we have conversation, screen share  and recording from client then cpu usage is out of control. I am using enterprise version, how can I run the server-side merging with antmedia 
server. ffmpeg provide option to do the merging but  how can we access these streams on antmedia servers.

Thanks
Nagendra

Hi Burak,
  Thanks for your reply.

There are two limitations of post meeting merging/
here:
1. Let's say a meeting has 3 participants: A join at t = 0. B joined at t =5 then B left, and then C joined at t = 10. So synchronization can be tricky.
2. Later on I want to provide the ability to do social broadcasts to channels, so merging needs to be done on the fly, else we have to wait till the event/meeting has not ended.


Any idea how zoom works (recording meeting)? I think zoom is merging on screen before sending to server rather on server.


Thanks
Nagendra

Hey,

I have worked with Agora.io in the past and it does it on the fly.
You can use an REST service to change the position and size of each stream in the recording layout.
Maybe you could implement something similar.

I also have that problem and I'm thinking on recording using a play only client + software to record some part of the screen and audio.

Not the best option but doable for some time.


Cheers,
Daniel.
