When creating a recording using the GoVideo Chrome extension, Vidyard temporarily keeps your video in the local storage space utilized by Google Chrome.
If you experience network problems while using GoVideo, recording will continue as normal. You will have the option to recover the video once the quality of your internet connection has improved.
Should the quality of your internet connection drop, recording will continue as normal. Once recording has finished, Vidyard will display the following Chrome notification:
Check your internet connection. It may not be performing optimally.
Once you have regained an optimal internet connection:
Note: Your video will begin to encode once recovered. Your video can be viewed, but it will not immediately have a thumbnail, show your position in the video during playback, or allow you to seek to another location.
These features will appear in several minutes once encoding has finished.
If you do not have available space in local storage, Vidyard will not prevent you from recording.
However, should your video fail to upload, Vidyard will be unable to recover it.
If Vidyard is unable to save your recording locally, you will be alerted by a Chrome notification indicating that Your local save space is low:
You can check how much local storage space is being utilized by Chrome in the browser console.
Vidyard will temporarily use only as much storage space as the size of your video requires. Once the video uploads to a GoVideo sharing page, it will be removed from local storage.
