New and Improved Webhook Section

The webhook section has received some much-needed updates and functionality improvements:

  • We now show the list of events for which we've fired webhooks in the new webhook schedule section
  • You can now re-send each webhook event independently. We're also showing the number of attempts to fire each scheduled webhook event.
  • You now have access to up to 30 days (PRO accounts) or 72 hours (Standard accounts) of data for both the webhook schedule and the webhook logs as opposed to the last 100 attempts as it was until now.
  • Search the schedule and logs by recording ID and custom data
  • Filter the logs and schedule by HTTP status (200 or Other)
  • Added pagination for navigating through large sets of events & logs
  • You can now deactivate and reactivate webhooks
  • We've added more sample data to the Test section and also brought the samples up to date
  • We've greatly improved how we're showing the request & response headers and bodies
  • We accurately measure the response time for each attempt to send data to you
  • Quickly switch between webhooks with the drop down menu

You can read more about it in the blogpost or sign in and experience it directly.

Out Of Beta

FTP Push Update

Pipe will now connect to FTP in passive connection mode and then fall back to active connection mode if passive is not supported.

Introducing the Transcoding Engine

Aaand liftoff, we have successfully launched the Transcoding Engine!

The Transcoding engine gives you control over the output of the Pipe platform.

Whether you need to change the aspect ratio and resolution of your videos, have the snapshot taken in different sizes, keep copies of the original recordings or generate a filmstrip to quickly scan the contents of a video, the Trancoding Engine has your back :)

DigitalOcean Spaces

You can use the S3 push feature to push recordings to your DigitalOcean Space so we've made small copy changes to the account area to align the wording.

More accurate Browser and OS info

Browser versions in the recordings list are now a bit more accurate. Ohh and we've added the OS version as well!

Easier Screen Recording

  • screen recording now works in both Chrome 72+ and Firefox 66+.
  • screen recording now works without an extension

Thus you can now enable screen recording from the options menu in the Embed section of your dashboard:

Once enabled, the Record Screen button will show and you can start capturing the screen right away.

getUserMedia() Logs To The Rescue

We've just launched a new Logs section that gives you access to all the successful and failed attempts to access the camera and microphone with getUserMedia().

This section is a very useful tool to help you give better customer support, get accurate analytics and look up user attempts to grant access to their camera and microphone.

You can find out more details in the blog post.

New Filters in the Recordings Section

2 updates to the Recordings section:

  • you can search recordings by the device IP
  • you can filter and show only Recovered recordings (recordings for which the connection was interrupted mid-recording and auto save was ON).

No longer will you need to sift through pages to find the elusive recordings :)

0 byte Files Are History

We've implemented a catch all mechanism for all of the situations that were producing 0 byte recordings coming from the HTML5 desktop recorder.

Previously, when a 0 byte file was made, the user that made the recording had no idea.

Now the user experience is much better. After clicking the record button if no incoming data is detected:

  1. For the first 2 seconds the message Waiting for data... is shown and the recording counter does not start, because nothing is actual recording.
  2. After 2 seconds if there is still no incoming data, the message Device error: no audio or video data is shown and the UI is reset, so that you can retry to record.
  3. The failed recording is not saved.

No published changelogs yet.

Surely Pipe will start publishing changelogs very soon.
