Instance Method

pauseRecording

Pauses recording to the current output file.

Declaration

- (void)pauseRecording;

Discussion

This method causes the receiver to stop writing captured samples to the current output file returned by outputFileURL, but leaves the file open so that samples can be written to it in the future, if resumeRecording is called. This allows you to record multiple media segments that are not contiguous in time to a single file.

In macOS, if this method is called within the captureOutput:didOutputSampleBuffer:fromConnection: delegate method, the last samples written to the current file are guaranteed to be those that were output immediately before those in the sample buffer passed to that method.
