How to Record Zoom Meetings

Easily record your next video conference

The ease of recording Zoom meetings can be useful when you need to look back on important details and re-evaluate what has been said. You can choose to use the built-in Zoom recorder or use a third-party app. So what should I use?

Are you using Zoom Recorder or a third-party solution?

The built-in Zoom local recorder is very useful for doing basic tasks. It also offers cloud storage capabilities if you have a paid membership to the service. However, you must have your host’s approval to record your meeting.

Although this isn’t always convenient, it’s always a good idea to ask other users within the meeting for permission. Taking videos without anyone knowing is an invasion of privacy, which some employers find harsh.

However, third-party apps may provide additional formats for video recording and do not require permission from the meeting organizer. Zoom only lets you record in MP4 format, which is not always convenient. One of the best alternatives we found is VideoSolo, which offers more file types and better previews.
