You may see several files types when you download including captioning and audio only. By default, the audio/video file (MP4) will be named Zoom_0.mp4. The audio only file (M4A) is named audio_only.m4a.  The local recording is an mp4 file that displays what’s visible in the session. All participants video feeds are shown and if there’s shared content that screen is part of the recording with just the speaker visible. When a session is recorded to the cloud, there can be multiple recordings depending on what happens in the session - speaker view/shared screen, gallery view/shared screen, shared screen and audio. 

See this link for more about different recording views -

Once your files have downloaded, learn how to upload the MP4 video file to Panopto.
