What are the limitations of the archiving functionality?

The OpenTok platform allows you to record any routed (non P2P) session. P2P sessions don't go through the OpenTok Media Router and it's not possible to record them.

What is the maximum number of publishers can be recorded?

The recommended number of recorded publishers is 5-6, but you can record up to 7-9.

What happens if 10th publisher joins during the archiving?

If 10th publisher joins the archived session, their stream will not be in the result archive.

What is the maximum length of an archive?

The maximum length of archive is 90 mins. If your session is longer than 120 mins, we recommend to stop archiving after 90 minutes and start a new one, you will end up with 2 files then.
