Recording and Sharing

As a host, you can record a Zoom meeting to either the Zoom cloud (and Panopto) or your local machine, and choose who has access to view the recordings.

Set up Panopto

Make sure you have logged into your UB Panopto account at least once before starting a Zoom cloud recording. Any new Zoom cloud recordings will then be copied to UB Panopto > My Folder > Meeting Recordings.

Record and choose storage

  1. On the Zoom toolbar click the Record icon
  2. From the pop-up menu, choose either:
    • Record on this Computer - Saves a file in mp4 format
    • Record to the Cloud - Saves a file to the Zoom cloud and (as long as you have ever logged into your UB Panopto account as described above) saves a separate, independent file to UB Panopto. Both these files are private until you share them. Editing the security settings or any other attributes of one video does not affect the other.

A recording will process once the meeting ends. Longer recordings will take longer to process and may require multiple upload attempts. You will receive a confirmation email when your recordings are ready online.

Share your Zoom recordings

Do not publicly share videos containing restricted or sensitive information.
