REC.VC enables you to live stream to any device directly from your video conference endpoint or virtual meeting room. We will in this blog post explain how you can embed a live stream on your site, e.g. a corporate website, corporate intranet, or customer portal. New to REC.VC? Sign up for a free trial here.

The REC.VC live stream link (which you share with the viewers) is based on the following syntax:

https://<site>/live/<stream-id>

<site> is the (sub)domain you go to when accessing the REC.VC service

<stream-id> is an auto-generated unique stream identifier consisting of 16 case-sensitive alphanumeric characters.

In case you are using the REC.VC branded site, the live stream link is as follow:

https://my.rec.vc/live/<stream-id>

In case you are using a white label site, you can replace <site> with the (sub)domain that you use when logging into your white label site as a REC.VC user. Many white label partners use rec.<domain> as their white label site.

To embed a live stream on your site, all you have to do is to place the following script somewhere within the <body> of a html page:

<script src="https://<site>/live/js/<stream-id>.js"></script>

Let’s say that we wanted to embed the following live stream in this blog post:

https://my.rec.vc/live/W4tgm30jT2VpUUlH

The script for this live stream based on the above syntax is as follows:

<script src="https://my.rec.vc/live/js/W4tgm30jT2VpUUlH.js"></script>

We have below added the script directly in the HTML code:

Note: The live stream above will most of the time be inactive as we will not keep the live stream up 24/7.

Recording should be a key component in any Video Conferencing (VC) service offering. At REC.VC we are convinced it is best provided to customers and users under the brand of the VC service. Service providers may evaluate one or a combination of the following white label approaches for REC.VC:

  • Register recorder addresses with your domain
  • White label the REC.VC user portal with your brand
  • Add recording button to your existing user interface

Register recorder addresses with your domain

As a service provider, you may already be providing your users with their personal video address or SIP URIs, e.g. username@yourbrand.com. You can in a similar fashion provide users with their personal recorder video address, e.g. username.rec@yourbrand.com or username@rec.yourbrand.com.

REC.VC recorders can register to any SIP registrar (just like any SIP device) but depending on the use case and interop requirements, registering the recorders to a Cisco VCS may be the way to go. For 1st line support and troubleshooting purposes we recommend that the SIP registrar in question is under your management (which is likely the point anyway since your existing domain(s) point to this SIP registrar). Alternatively, REC.VC can provide SIP registrar whom you can point your domain to (SRV records).

White label the REC.VC user portal with your brand

As multitenant cloud platform, REC.VC enables white label sites per reseller or service provider (and even for each customer subject to commercial terms). Each white label site can be provisioned with:

  • Your preferred domain (e.g. rec.yourbrand.com) or yourbrand.rec.vc
  • Your logo, favicon.ico and font(s)
  • Your colors on buttons and backgrounds
  • Your content (title, body, footer, etc)

The white label sites come with an optional registration field enabling resellers and service providers to use the site for lead-gen purposes in addition to providing existing users with a recording and playback user interface.

You may visit my.rec.vc and yourbrand.rec.vc to see examples of REC.VC sites (in addition to the screenshots illustrating this blog post).

REC.VC White label GUI Example

Add recording button to your existing interface

For service providers and vendors/manufacturers wanting to make REC.VC recording, streaming and/or playback an integral part of their existing user interface, we recommend using the REC.VC API which includes all the features and capabilities available in the REC.VC user portal. The API can e.g. be used in the following areas:

  • Provisioning of Companies (in hierarchical structure, parent/child relation), and users and recorders within Companies.
  • Call control for calling out from the recorders (to be used when adding recording button to your existing interface), disconnecting calls, and retrieval of call statistics.
  • Retrieval of recorded video meta data (video thumbnail, title, URL) for playback in your existing user interface or portal.

MNS.VC, a global provider of value added cloud applications for Visual Communications, today announced the launch for REC.VC, a global cloud service for recording, sharing and streaming of video calls and video meetings.

MNS.VC’s CEO Hans Fredrik Johansen comments:

“Video conference recorders have traditionally been clunky to use, expensive and typically very few people had access to them. We have engineered REC.VC to change that. We want to empower every video conferencing user to record and share video calls and video meetings. We want it to be easy. We want it to be affordable. And we believe the power of sharing discussions, trainings and knowledge increase the value of visual collaboration for organizations”.

REC.VC is delivered as a QoS.VC cloud service to ensure great recording quality regardless of the location of the recording source. REC.VC nodes are distributed across the world to comply with customers demand for in-country recording and storage, and to provide users with close proximity for video playback.

REC.VC is also available as a white label service for resellers, service providers and vendors. Resellers can easily and without any investment add REC.VC to their existing portfolio of products and services, and start generating recurring revenue from day one. Service providers and vendors can also use the REC.VC API to integrate with their own video conferencing endpoints, clients, MCUs, scheduling systems, or customer portals.

Free REC.VC trial is available, please visit rec.vc to sign up.
