Pipe Is Reliable.

And can handle long videos; And has shorter upload times;


On desktops, Pipe streams the video data to the media server, while recording.

This solution is better than other solutions that involve recording locally + uploading because:

  1. The total recording time is shorter.
  2. The recorded video is safely stored in case of tab/browser/OS crash or accidental close.
  3. You can record long videos.
