NEW YORK, May 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Screen recording has long been a wish-list item for iOS device users, but because Apple doesn't allow screen recorders on the App Store, the technology has remained unavailable--until today's release of Vidih, the new service that empowers iPod, iPad and iPhone users to record and live stream anything on their device to Twitch, YouTube and Facebook Live, complete with microphone audio for easy, real-time narration. Best of all, Vidih was developed to work within Apple's strict requirements, so users never break a single iOS rule by using Vidih.
"Live streaming apps or any other on-screen content to social media from any iOS mobile device just became simple," said Dieter Smith, a member of the Vidih team. "Apple's closed system presents some technical challenges for developers, especially when it comes to screen recording. Today, we're proud to say we've overcome those challenges and are now offering a first-of-its-kind tool for recording and live streaming anything on a user's screen without breaking Apple's rules."
Before today's release of the tool, users had few options for live streaming apps directly from their iOS devices. A jailbroken device was required, and even then, the few apps that were available tended to be resource-intensive and unreliable. Vidih, on the other hand, is initiated from the web browser on the user's mobile device and the resource intensive work is done by one of Vidih's many servers instead of by an onboard app —making Vidih a versatile, fast and convenient solution that never requires users to break rules (or potentially void warranties) by jailbreaking their devices and works on even the slowest of iOS devices.
Unikel Global does have an optional paid app in the App Store with video editing tools and access to a premium account with unlimited live streaming and recording time. However, anyone can take advantage of the core features of Vidih from his or her iOS device, and Vidih is always accessed from https://vidih.com/ rather than from the optional app.
Social media viewers will appreciate Vidih's high resolution and frame rate, which, at up to 1080p and 60 fps, respectively, are comparable to the highest-end video games. The tool records and live streams high-fidelity sound directly from the device and can even capture microphone audio, so users can narrate whatever they're seeing and doing on their screens in real time.
Because Vidih doesn't tax the device's resources, quality is maintained throughout a live streaming event, even if the user moves from one app or game to another. Unikel Global maintains over 30 server locations globally to ensure low latency, and minimal lag and buffering no matter where the user is. All live streamed data is protected by industry-standard encryption.
Vidih is optimized for a variety of social uses, including live streaming a mobile game to Twitch, demonstrating an app's functionality to a Facebook Live audience, or capturing apps that cannot otherwise be recorded, like SnapChat or iOS itself. Few iOS apps have built-in live streaming functionality, but with Vidih, users have a powerful workaround that respects Apple's rules.
