Recordings are generated when you use the <Record> verb. Those recordings are hosted with teleapi for you to retrieve. The Recordings list resource represents the set of an account’s recordings.

Recording Resource URI


To download the audio file just append .wav after the RecordingSid.

The URLs that contain the actual audio recordings are accessible by everyone without the need to authenticate with teleapi . This is per design to allow for your apps to easily access the recordings without revealing your credentials. The same is NOT true for the resource to retrieve the list of recordings so unauthenticated users cannot access the RecordingSid and hence not able to download the actual recording.


Although Recording Sids in Recording URLs are essentially long random strings that are very difficult to guess, you still need to make sure that they don’t fall in the wrong hands
