When reviewing your archives, you may notice that multiple recordings are sometimes created from your single broadcast. This occurs when your encoder disconnects from our servers during a broadcast, then reconnects. Our server-side recording will append an existing recording, as long as the connection to our ingest servers is re-established within 25-seconds. If the connection is not re-established in that 25-second window, a new archive will be created.
Additionally, if any recording in-progress exceeds 4GB, the recording-in-progress is stopped, processed, and a new archive is created.
