How To Manage Your Recordings

The WpStream platform allows you to manage your recordings by uploading videos, keeping recordings of live events, recording new videos, and publishing videos – these can be either pay-per-view or free, with copy protection included. 

The WpStream ‘Recordings’ section features an intuitive interface that was designed to be as simple as possible, yet flexible and feature-rich. Ease of use has always been one of the platform’s strong points. 

In this article we’ll take a look at your website’s Recordings and the different ways you can use and manage your recordings and videos.

Recordings Uses

The ‘Recordings’ section is an excellent tool for website owners who:

  • Live stream sporadically but also want to keep track of their media files and recordings
  • Want to offer certain recordings or videos as pay-per-view products
  • Want a safe and easy way to use storage space for video files, right on their website
  • Stream on a regular basis and want to offer the recordings for free
  • Want to download their recordings and combine them into compilations for, say, anniversary streams
