Hi Murat,
that's exactly what I was saying. I didn't look deeply into it, but I just read the BBB FAQ's:
Record and Playback
Where is the record button
In BigBlueButton, the external application that uses the BigBlueButton API can now pass an additional parameter record=true when creating a session. This additional parameter instructs the BigBlueButton server to record the session and make a recording available through subsequent getRecordings calls.

There is no user interface for the presenter to turn on or turn off a recording.

When instructed through the API call, the BigBlueButton server will record all of the meeting, from the time the first person joins to when the last person leaves. A meeting may also end when it reaches it's duration or the end is called on the meeting.

Hi I am trying to integrate the Big Blue button in to our test website.
We have a demo account with www.hostbbb.com and I have tried the one that comes pre-installed.
But can not get them to link.
I have entered the URL and Salt key.
But can not see on either system how to make the user name for Big Blue or set the moderator and viewer password.

When I go to collaborate and click video conference I get no rooms available.
Can you guide me through the set-up process please?
Many Thanks
Tim

Hello, the question is not very clear but I try to give some details

I suppose you refere to the "videoconference" TAB. That tab only shows the rooms that have been created inside a course. If you didn't do that, then it's empty. Videoconference is always tied to a course.

If everything is configured correctly, you have to add the "videoconference" item to your course menu. Once you do that, as an administrator or teacher, you can create a meeting room inside a course and subcribe the students and yourself.
And you'll also see the meeting rooms in the videoconference tab.
