How to Record a Zoom Meeting:

  1. Once in a meeting, simply select the record button in the bottom toolbar of Zoom. 
  2. This will begin a recording of the Zoom meeting.
  • You can pause the meeting by selecting the pause button. This will pause the recording. Once you resume the recording, it will be saved to the same video file as the recording before the pause.
  • You can stop the recording by selecting the stop button. This will end the recording, and the video file will be saved once the meeting has ended.

Overview of the Zoom recording settings:

  • Choose a location for recorded files when the meeting ends. 
    • This will ask you where to save the recording files each time you end a meeting that has been recorded.
  • Record a separate audio file for each participant who speaks.
    •  This will save a separate audio file for each participant in a recorded meeting who spoke. This option could be useful if you were trying to just record select participants in the meeting, or if some of the participants did not give consent to be recorded.
  • Optimize for 3rd party video editor.
    • This will save the recording file in a video format that can be opened by most video editing software. 
  • Add a timestamp to the recording.
    •  This overlays a time stamp to the bottom right of the video and could be helpful for sharing the video or just for recording the exact time of the Zoom meeting.
  • Record video during screen sharing.
    •  Records your webcam while screen sharing.
  • Place video next to the shared screen in the recording.
    •  Embeds the video from your webcam next to any screen sharing content in the recording file. Makes it easier to share the meeting as a whole.
  • Keep temporary recording files.
    •  This can be useful for troubleshooting if you have any issues with the recording file after the meeting. Only turn on if you have extra storage space.
