Enable Lite Recording mode
Lite Recording mode uses an alternative encoding method that is less demanding on devices with lower processing power.
If Vidyard detects that your device may not be able to create a smooth recording (2 or less CPU cores), we’ll automatically enable Lite Recording on your behalf. You can also turn the setting ON or OFF as needed.
If you are using the browser extension, Lite Recording also limits the resolution captured in the video to a maximum of 720p.
- Open the browser extension or desktop app
- Click on the Settings icon
- Make sure Enable Lite Recording is turned ON
- Sign in to your Vidyard account
- Select New > Record Video in the top right-hand corner
- Choose Camera to record, then make sure Enable Lite Recording is turned ON
