How can I monitor Replayable's internet activity?

Unlike some other screen recorders, Replayable does not upload your video to the cloud until you click the Publish button. Instead, Replayable records to a local directory, and the video is quickly uploaded after your review.

But you're a developer, and you want to see for yourself. If you're on Mac, Little Snitch is a handy tool to monitor Replayable's activity. While it won't allow you to see the individual requests and responses (thanks HTTPS), we can infer some things about Replayable's activity just by the size of the data transferred at different times.

When watching the video above, notice the network up/down graph in the bottom left. As the application sits open, we can see small heartbeats as Replayable sends usage analytics to Heap.io and Segment.

Notice that there is no consistent upload while the application is open. 

When we click the publish button, we can see the network traffic increase significantly.
