Please note: Due to excessive demand on Zoom nationally during this time, cloud recordings are taking notably longer than normal to be processed. Recording locally (as shown below) is a possible workaround. However, if you want to make user of Zoom's automatic machine-generated captioning/transcription, you still need to record to the cloud.

Recording a meeting to the cloud (Faculty and staff)

  1. While hosting a Zoom Meeting move your mouse to the bottom of the window (if screen sharing is not activated) or to the top of the window (if screen sharing is activated) to display the Zoom task bar. Select 'Record.' 
  2. Select 'Record to the cloud.'

You and your participants will be notified by the indicator in the upper-left corner that the meeting is being recorded.

Please note: Your recordings will be stored for a maximum of 120 days and then automatically deleted.  If you would like to save your recording for personal use and permanent storage, you can download from the "My recordings" page in Zoom and store on your Google drive.  If you would like to save your recording for future academic uses, you can transfer your recording to Panopto.

***NEW*** You can also now share your recording from zoom cloud storage if you are faculty and staff. Please be advised that your video will only be available on zoom for 120 days. You can can control who has access by creating a password or restricting to only those with a Lehigh account.

Recording a meeting locally (Student use, optional for faculty and staff)

  1. While hosting a Zoom Meeting move your mouse to the bottom of the window (if screen sharing is not activated) or to the top of the window (if screen sharing is activated) to display the Zoom task bar. Select 'Record.' 
  2. Select 'Record to your local machine.'

You and your participants will be notified by the indicator in the upper-left corner that the meeting is being recorded.

Local recording allows users to record meeting video and audio locally to a computer.

The recorded files can be uploaded to a file storage service like Dropbox, Google Drive, or a streaming service like YouTube or Vimeo. Zoom recording can also be stored, shared and edited in Panopto.

BEST PRACTICE FOR COURSES: Zoom recording can also be stored, shared and edited in Panopto.

Note: 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. 

All recordings will be placed in a Zoom folder found in the following file path on these devices:

  • PC: C:\Users\User Name\Documents\Zoom
  • Mac: /Users/User Name/Documents/Zoom
