    Hello! I’m a university teacher. Because of COVID-19 we started to communicate with our students in Discord, it's great! I can share information with students, check homework, we even have a bot integrated with our university IT services. The idea of Discord chanels has much in common with classrooms. 

    However we must record the process of exams and keep it in case of some disputs and appeals, and we can’t do it without 3rd party software :(

    Some teachers managed to start using Discord, but screen recording is still not the easiest thing if you can’t do it just by clicking a single button.

    Please, add video recording feature to make Discord perfect!)

    This is a great feature to add.  Skype already has it.  Privacy concerns? all you do is prompt the other side 'allow so and so to record call?' YES or NO to be a failsafe. 

    The end of the record you allow all participants to download the file.  It's available for no more than 12-24 hours.

    Easy Peasy.

    "Why cant i find the record option?"

    Because there isn't it yet.

    The post is for this purpose. To discuss this implementation.
    I see it as an interesting feature.

    "First, it's kinda a privacy violation.

    Second, you can just use OBS to record everything

    There's no point in this"

    Do you see how inconsistent you are saying that ? If you can't help, don't say "It is obvious".
    This is the typical behaviour that doesn't help and certainly doesn't make you smarter than anyone.

    If you believe that it is an Privacy Violation, why are you suggesting OBS ?

    "Obvious" that there is a point on it. Having all features in one place.

    this would be a perfect feature for online classes, I was just about to recommend discord for online classes in my school instead of their chosen streaming site "google meets", but then I realized discord doesn't have a recording function, google has one and it's really convenient as it could record the site and it instantly saves to the organizer's google drive without having to upload it.

    My suggestion would be, maybe the person who records the session and they end the session, the video gets sent to a cloud server the user linked their account with, one drive, google drive, or something else.

    Maybe a text channel gets recorded on where the organizer stopped recording.

    It would definately make sense... 
    Since OBS records a chosen part of your screen, you wouldn't have the full video resolution of the video-call. Therefore you would need to make a fullscreen-recording with OBS, which is fine but... If you need to use your browser for internet access or do other stuff while having the video-call, fullscreen-recording wouldn't be fitting... only with two screens(monitors).
    With only one monitor it would be great to have an internal way of recording video-calls or gamestreams in Discord..

    Hi 

    Many Thank for your amazing App 

    Recently I faced troubles with zoom so I heard discord can help me but it doesn't have Record video call or group call(for me it is my class)

    It is a necessary feature for me to run my online classes on discord . I wanna have my class videos for further uses like post them on instagram . 

    I know I can use bandicam or other screen recording apps to record my class with discord on my device but it doesn't has quality that I had on my class recording with zoom.

    Another thing Please increase number of participants ,9? 

    It's good for me . I just have 5 students but my colleague has 14 students and even can't think about use discord.

     

    Thanks Again 

    Waiting for recording update , I hope it happens soon

    Good idea! Just like Zoom or Google Meets, it would show the user that they are being recorded. Since Discord only allows for 8MB sized files at the max (without Nitro or boosted server), it would either stop recording when the file reaches 8MB (not what I want), stop recording, then create a new file (there would be many recordings), or, it would record to your local computer. Alternatively, you could connect a Google Drive, OneDrive, or Dropbox account and it would record to there.

    This feature would be amazing for companies as zoom & MS Teams allow this too, and if you talk with clients it is good to have a record of this meeting. I don't see any Privacy concerns

    To the Team(s) developing Discord: THANK YOU, GREAT APP!

    ONTOPIC: I do record with oCam, but it would make Discord way more professional and competitive with ZOOM if it had a recording included & a fancy red shining light signaling "recording in progress".

    It would probably mess with the paying system to store it internally/cloud based already, but it could very well be saved on the computer instantly.

    Could also be a fun and small feature to implement. (I hope you guy work Agile / with Scrum? If you don't plz contact me and I'll gladly set up an online workshop for you. I do have a background in Agile Coaching.)

    Cheers Paul Philipp Dorra

    I would love this feature, so me and my friends could record our RPG sessions to listen in the future to reminisce, since they're so funny.

    I would use it to record YouTube videos with the beautiful Discord sound quality!

    My suggestion would be, the recording gets sent to a cloud server the user linked their account with, one drive, google drive, or something else.

    Please, do It!

    On mobile app it would be wonderful!

    I need this feature in order to move my company off of Teams, WebEx, and Skype to this great app. Privacy can be handled appropriately with those in the channel well aware of the recoding starting, ending, and opting in with permission. For companies, this is an important feature and in order to get into that market more, this feature is required.

    Both audio and shared screens, and streaming...

    Add permissions features to the voice channel regarding permissions, etc. 

    Save to recorder computer OR to cloud such as Discord (Nitro)...limits on time, size, etc. other than nitro which could have different limits...

  • If you want to record the call (Voice only) there are now many bots in the network. I am also a youtuber so I need to record calls. So I preffer to you guys- 'Craig' This bot starts recording as soon as you give him the command. Download is one click. The bot is Op

    I think this is okay to use, assuming you have permission of the people in the call.

    This suggestions has been around for 2 years. Any update yet?  
    The only way that I can do cloud recording is to via Skype but I am sick with their interface and low sound quality.

    Discord is way better but lacking of video call recording feature is a huge draw back. I've to switch between thse two softwares for general chat and video recording.

    You can use Craig chatbot, but yes is a useful function

    I think community servers should have this.

    If a user denies being recording he or she can be kicked out of the call or if Discord implements it, their audio-video is committed from the recording.

    I have experimented with using OBS to stream classes through Discord but it wasn't successful. I don't know if this has been mentioned above but my experience with streaming OBS through Discord is that it mirrors the video automatically which makes any text display backwards. Evidently, this is a known issue with Discord and they is no way to set the stream to not mirror it. I was really disappointed.

    DrZ-PCC have you tried to flip your image horizontally (Transform -> Flip ...) in OBS?

    I think it can be a very viable idea. discord already does a great job with letting you set a community up. and with them have only a few people on in a server at a time allows for less lag and drop call issues.  I myself would like to see a feature were I can record a livestream with myself and 2 guests as we act out a script.  Just and the record feature into the role area or into permissions, this way only that one voice channel is used for it and everyone understands that it'll be used for it.

    I support this idea. We want record video call sometimes with my automation testing team. We use Discord for daily syncronization.

    As others here have said, the addition to recording (especially as stated, with regard to addressing the privacy concerns) would be an amazing boon to Discord. I'm in the midst of a start-up for game development and because of the ease of setting up multiple channels for both text and voice, we post a good amount of material on the server during and between meetings. Being able to record those meetings and the valuable ideas that come out of them would be magic.

    I definitely want to know if this is still in the works. Perhaps two years ago it didn't seem like a pertinent thing to have. However, now that so many people are still having to operate from home, Discord could bloom into an ideal platform for so many teams to get work done and have a record of the wonderful tidbits that come out of collaboration.
