Recording straight to Dropbox

Mon Jan 06, 2014 5:39 am

I have two computers. The better one I play and record games on, and the wimpier one I edit, render, and upload on. I record to a local folder, then put it on a Dropbox folder, which takes quite a while to move over even on LAN, then I edit and upload. To save the transfer time, it occurred to me record straight to Dropbox. Would that work?

Hello!

Why don't you set the output folder to your dropbox? (No. 2)

Yeah, I know how to do that, but I don't know if it will upload correctly, or fully.

In theory, it should work fine. Although, it most likely won't upload properly and start fully uploading until you've finished recording.

Well, if the file is constantly being added on to at the end, and Dropbox uploads from beginning to end, it should work fine. Right?

I don't know, to be honest. It depends on how the file is encoded then written to disk, which is something out of my knowledge. You could try it, as it should work like that, but I'm not completely sure.

I think I'm not going to try. I just recorded a 10 minute video, and put it on my Dropbox. Took 2 hours to move. Obviously, this is not going to work, so consider this thread closed.

2 hours to move over LAN sounds like a lot. Are you sure that it was over LAN and not uploading it to the Dropbox Cloud? It might be better to get a USB 3.0 hard drive if both your computers support it, or maybe just record straight into a shared folder (if possible, I don't think that's a good idea after thinking about it).
