Thanks: 2 times
I'm trying to set up a series of batch files that will allow me to restart my encoding computer on a schedule and have an otherwise 24/7 stream return to streaming and recording after the restart.

I can auto-launch vMix with my desired preset and use a curl POST request to toggle external output to on; however, the StartRecording function returns the error "The path is not of a legal form" with the text "StartStopRecording" in the large textbox at the bottom of the error message (see attached). The batch file is the same format that I use to successfully trigger the external output (replace StartRecording with StartExternal, and it works fine):

curl --request POST http://xxx.xx.xx.xxx:8088/api/?Function=StartRecording

Is there by chance a bug in how the API is handling recording requests? Anyone else run into this or have a work-around? Thanks!
