Audio Only Recording

You asked for it, we listened, so here you go. Pipe can now be used to record audio only.

The new feature can easily be enabled directly from the Pipe account area from the Embed Recorder page or directly from the embed code by adding the new ao parameter to the flashvars object and setting this new parameter to 1.

  • The issue with some videos being processed only after 1 minute is fixed
  • Saving the videos in our database is more secure
