Sharing a local recording Follow

Overview

Local Recording saves your recording files on your computer. It is not possible to upload a local recording to the Zoom cloud. To store a video on Zoom's cloud, you must use cloud recording.

However, you can share your local recording with others by uploading it to third-party cloud storage, content/learning management, or video streaming service such as Google Drive, YouTube, or Vimeo.

Prerequisites

  • Zoom desktop client version 3.5 or higher

Instructions

To locate the recording files on your computer:

  1. Sign in to the Zoom client.
  2. Click Meetings.
  3. Click the Recorded tab.
  4. Select the meeting you would like to view the recording for and click Open. This will open the folder where your recording files are stored. The MP4 file is the video file.
    Note: If you only see the Open button, the meeting contains a cloud recording.
  5. Visit a cloud storage or video streaming service like Dropbox, Box, Google Drive, YouTube, or Vimeo, and upload the MP4 file.
