How to record a meeting on Zoom

Local recording of Zoom meetings is available to both free and paid subscribers. Local recording allows participants to record the meeting video and audio locally to the device they are using when in the meeting. The recorded files can be uploaded to any file storage service at the user’s convenience. These include Google Drive and Dropbox, or even a streaming service like YouTube or Vimeo.

The prerequisites for recording a Zoom meeting are a basic/free account and a Zoom desktop client for macOS, Windows, or Linux, version 2.0, or higher. It is important to note that local recording is not supported on iOS and Android. If you are using a mobile device, you will have to do cloud recording for paid accounts.

  4. After you have ended the meeting, Zoom will automatically convert the recording so that you can easily access the files.
  5. Once the conversion process is done, the folder that contains the recorded files will open on your device for you. Note that the audio/video file (MP4) will be named Zoom_0.mp4 by default.
