When you record to the cloud, the video, audio, and chat text are recorded in the Zoom cloud. The recording files can be downloaded to a computer or streamed from a browser.
Recording your Zoom meetings is easy.

Posting your recording to MediaSpace
Posting a recording from your local computer
Posting your locally-stored recordings is just like posting any other video in MediaSpace. Simply follow the instructions in the Uploading files to MediaSpace article in this Knowledge Base.
There are two things you need to remember:
- Your video will be found in the Documents/Zoom folder.
- Post the .MP4 file. (There will be several files in the folder. You only need the .MP4.)
Posting a recording stored in the cloud
Before you can upload a recording from the cloud into MediaSpace, you need to download it to the local computer.
From the Zoom website, ...
- Click in Recordings in the left column.
- Select the Cloud Recordings tab.
- Click on the name of the video you wish to download.
- Click the download button.
The video will be stored in your Downloads folder as a .MP4 file. You can then upload your video to MediSpace by following the steps in the Uploading files to MediaSpace article.
