Security has been and will always be a key component of the REC.VC cloud service.
We have over the last 3-4 months further enhanced the security framework by introducing several new features including a new additional security layer when sharing live stream and playback links with third-party viewers.
Here is how …
REC.VC makes it easy for you to share a video recording with third-party while maintaining your desired level of security. To share one of your recordings, simply click on the Share icon:
The Share media window will then give you the following link options:
- Link lifetime (define when you want the link to expire):
- Custom (set expiry date)
- 24 hours
- One week
- One month
- Link password (optional)
- Make video downloadable (includes download button in video player)
You can then decide if you want the copy & paste the unique enscrypted LINK or share it by E-MAIL to any e-mail recipients you add.
You can view a demo recording (no audio) with password protected link here ( password: Demo=1234).
Live streaming links
REC.VC makes it easy for any user (with live streaming permission set) to live stream from a video conference endpoint or virtual meeting room to hundreds or thousands of viewers. And with the latest enhancements, the live stream link can optionally be password protected.
First step is to Add new stream via the Stream drop down (you may also generate unique encrypted and password protected link on any existing Streams):
Once you have added the Stream title, you’ll get the Share stream window with the option to add Link password and generate a new encrypted and password protected link:

Today we updated REC.VC with a new security feature enabling you to set the Link Lifetime when sharing your recorded videos with third-parties.
The new feature gives you the following Link Lifetime options when creating links:
- 24 hours
- 1 week
- 1 month
- Custom (select expiry date)
You can with the new sharing feature create unlimited numbers of playback links for a video with unique Link Lifetime (e.g. for different audiences).
When creating a new playback link you can easily copy & paste it from the user interface, or share it by email (triggering an email from REC.VC).
Any playback link that you have shared prior to February 1st, 2018, will continue to work for at least two months. We recommend however that you by April 1st 2018 generate and share new links for any of your old recordings that you want external parties to have access to. We do not guarantee that old playback links will work after April 1st 2018.
