The difference between recorded and recording in videos


#1

Hi,
When making the api call for Get videos, I get a list of video data with the first video’s status being recording and the rest are recorded.
What is the difference between the two?
I initially thought that it possibly meant the recording video was a live stream or a rerun, but that is not the case
Thanks in advance!

Recording means it’s still recording as the stream that is recorded is still live. The vod will get longer
Recorded means the stream is finished and the vod is complete.


Is it possible to get VOD / video id from Stream id?

Thanks for the reply! That’s what I thought but unfortunately this isn’t the case. When going to the video that’s “recording” I can see that the video isn’t actually still recording. It’s not streaming/live. The vod doesn’t get longer. (unless I misunderstood what you said)
