Recording with Zoom

Zoom supports recording meetings to either your local computer and to the cloud. Meetings that are recorded to your local computer are stored as an MP4 and are available for your use and/or editing. When you record to the cloud, the video is automatically stored in your MediaSpace account.

To begin a recording with Zoom go to your Zoom Meeting...

1. Click on the Record button in the toolbar on the bottom of the Zoom window.

2. Select where the recording will be stored.

  • Selecting Record to the Cloud will store the recording in your MediaSpace account. This should be the default way you store videos. Not only does it save you the step of moving the video up manually, but it also keeps the videos from gobbling up precious hard drive space.
  • Selecting Record on this Computer will store the video on your computer. These recordings are converted to MP4 files after the meeting closes and are stored in the Documents/Zoom folder. Use this option if you need to do any major editing to the video before you post it.

3. Record changes to Pause/Stop Recording and serves as the controls for stopping the recording.
