You may need to retrieve the recoding_ending.json to be able to access the recording in S3. Also make sure the recording didn't fail (recording_failed.json). Please refer to the following link for additional information on IVS Record to S3. Take particular note of the following sub sections

    thanks for your answer Mike-Me, I already following the documentation and check the recoding_ending.json like above but in the file still don't have <recording_id> to access path according the documentation you share, or we don't need recording_id to access it...?

To add on to the above solution, the Amazon IVS team recommends using the "Recording State Change" Amazon EventBridge events ( to gather the recording_id (or recording_s3_key_prefix). These events are produced at the start and end of a recording session, which includes the recording_s3_bucket_name (ie: which S3 bucket the content was stored in) and the recording_s3_key_prefix (ie: the bucket/folder path of where the content was stored within the S3 bucket). Hopefully this helps achieve the information that you are inquiring about.
