How to Record your iSee Session

How to Record your iSee Session

Accessing the record function

iSee allows anyone to record their iSee experience onto their local hard drive.

The recording function can be accessed by selecting 'Recording & Play Back' from the top left pulldown menu and then clicking on 'Record'. It will then allow you to edit the location and file name for the recording. You can also select the file type for the recording.

Note that when choosing the *.avi, *.mpg, *.mp4 or *.mov file formats your display scaling must be set at 100% to capture the iSee window effectively.  

The recording will automatically start on clicking 'Save'. The recording can be stopped at any time by returning to 'Recording & Play Back' from the top left pulldown menu and choosing 'Stop Recording'.

Recording file types in iSee

By default iSee records in a lossless and very efficient *.iSee file type that has no degradation. This file type can only be replayed in iSee. To play back the recording, sign in to iSee, but instead of entering a session, choose 'Recording & Play Back' from the top left hand menu and select you recorded file to play back. Recording in the iSee file type does not currently support the recording of screen shares within an iSee session.

If you would like to play your recording with a standard video player or upload it to YouTube, you will need to make sure that one of the compatible file formats is selected such as avi, mpg, mp4 or mov when setting up the recording. These types of files lose resolution and image quality during encoding but can be useful if you want to share the recording with someone who doesn't have iSee.


Creating high quality iSee recordings

If you would like to create high quality recordings for promotional videos or streaming, it's best to use free to use game capture and streaming software such as the xbox game recording software built in to Windows 10, or OBS Studio.

 Note that if you intend to edit your clips before posting rather than live streaming, the xbox game recording software uses a variable frame rate. This creates audio syncing issues with many video editors that require a fixed frame rate for their source clips. If you would like to create edited clips we recommend using OBS Studio.

 You can record to the game capture/streaming software live, or use it to record previously captured *.iSee files.
