StreamYard automatically records live streams on paid plans. If you don't want to go live, you can do a "Record Only" broadcast instead.
How to do a "Record Only" Broadcast
- Go to your Broadcasts Dashboard and click "Create a Broadcast". Instead of choosing a destination, select "Skip, Record only".
- Enter the studio, and click "Record" in the top right.
- After recording, go to your Past Broadcasts to access the download.
- Click the 3 dots and select the "Download Recording" option. You can choose to download the full recording, or just the audio file.
