All participants in a Zoom meeting can record it once it's in progress, either to the cloud or to your own device.

On a PC or Mac

  1. In the meeting window, select ‘Record’ then 'Record to this Computer' or 'Record to the Cloud' to immediately start recording.
  2. You can stop and start recording multiple times in a meeting by selecting ‘Pause’ and ‘Resume’.
  3. Select ‘Stop’ to end your recording.

Once the meeting has ended, Zoom may take some time to generate the video file, depending on the length of your recording.

If you have recorded to your computer, Zoom will generate an MP4 video file and store it in the Zoom folder in your documents.

If you have recorded to the cloud, you'll receive an email with the links and passwords you need to access the recordings.

Remember to download the recordings before their online expiry date, which is also in the email.
