  • Recording on MacOS with Chrome is causing an Audio Delay and a Desync issue in the final Primary MP4 Recording. At this time it is recommend you do not use Chrome with MacOS to Record Primary Recordings. If you would still like to use Chrome with MacOS we recommend enabling Pilot Program to use a new Recording Engine. This issue effects Chrome and the Chrome Development Team is aware of the issue. This issue is not related to just SquadCast recordings. See Pilot Program Features below
