Improved Uploads For Large Files






We've implemented multipart upload for Amazon S3 object storage and compatible services (Google Cloud, Digital Ocean Spaces). This applies to both the Pipe storage and to your own storage for recordings larger than 100 MiB in size.

What this means for you:

  1. This method ensures improved throughput, which means that you will experience faster uploads for large files, especially visible if the upload happens between different geographical regions, for example, if the recording is uploaded from our EU2 region towards your S3 object storage located in the US or Asia. From our limited testing, we've observed as much as a 3x increase in upload speeds.
  2. Another benefit is that you will be able to upload recordings that are larger than 5 GiB in size.
  3. On choppy connections, parts that failed to upload will be retried (up to 3 times) instead of retrying the entire file.

Recordings page showing the copy & conversion delay + filter by UTC date






We have updated the Recordings page:

  1. Implemented the option for the users to filter their recordings by the UTC date.
  2. The Copy and conversion delay is now present for each recording
  3. The switching pages of recordings now works properly.

More transparent Dropbox application management




On the Dropbox Integration page the user is now able to see which email is connected for each recording environment.

If the user disconnects the Dropbox App, he will see the remaining time it will take for the changes to reflect to our servers, or can manually remove the credentials by pressing a button.

Clearer Transcoding UI




We have made a better user experience by making it clearer and notifying the user with an alert that at least one video output should be selected on Transcoding Engine page.

Add ability to remove the entry from the News & Product Updates




The users can now remove themselves completely from our News & Product Updates list rather than subscribing and unsubscribing.

The user agent is now saved with password reset requests




We now save the client provided User Agent when a password reset is made and we display it in the account dashboard under https://dashboard.addpipe.com/sessions to let you see from what kind of browser/device the password reset was initiated.

Updated Signing Webhooks Docs




We've updated the Singing Webhooks docs with:

  1. new info regarding what data needs to be signed (and how to get it) when using application/json instead of application/x-www-form-urlencoded
  2. updated PHP code
  3. "Signing" instead of "Authenticating"

le: added a new Python & Flask code example

New Dropbox Integration




We've just released our new integration with Dropbox.

This simplifies the whole process and streamlines the authorization using the industry standard oAuth flow.

If you are using Dropbox to store your Pipe recordings, we encourage you to switch to the new integration.

le: the new integration is covered in this new blog post.

Export Recording Data




We have just launched a feature that allows you to export your recording data.

You can access this new feature by going to: https://dashboard.addpipe.com/export

On this page you will be able to set a date range for the export, select the environments you wish to export data for, and choose whether or not to export additional datasets(personal data, recording output data) alongside the default dataset.


Some example use cases for the exported recording data:

  • importing the data into other tools for analyzing
  • downloading all the recordings that are stored by Pipe
  • review of the PII we process alongside the recordings
  • backup

LE: More details on this new feature can be found in the blogpost.

Limited access to EU1

We've now limited access to our EU1 only region option to those environments that already have it selected.
