Zoom is a video conferencing web-based tool. It is available for both mobile and desktop users and allows users to communicate online with or without a video camera. Zoom users can share another screen while using Zoom’s quality audio, video, and wireless screen sharing features. While using Zoom for video chatting or online class, you can record a Zoom meeting and watch it later on your PC or smartphone. Zoom has no feature to watch or replay a meeting after it is over, instead it allows you to record if permitted by the host.

- Bandicam allows you to record your screen while the Zoom meeting is going on with or without the host’s permission.
- Bandicam optimizes recording performance by using a hardware-accelerated H.264 encoder(NVIDIA, Intel, AMD). (Zoom’s own recording function doesn’t support hardware acceleration.)
- You can use Bandicam’s real-time drawing function or add a mouse cursor effect.
- Bandicam allows you to check the recorded files without the conversion process. (On the other hand, when recording with Zoom, you have to go through the conversion process, which may cause quality loss or consume additional time.)

Zoom is one of the most popular remote collaboration platforms that is being used by a lot of companies and institutions to collaborate with their employees remotely. It is also being used by a lot of educational institutions to conduct classes remotely which is helping students keep up with their classes.
If you are a teacher or trainer that conducts classes and webinars online, then you might have considered recording your lessons and sessions so that they can be easily broadcast to your class or meeting attendees.
If you are looking for a way to pre-record your meeting/class to be later broadcast on Zoom then you have landed at the perfect webpage.
Let’s take a look at how you can pre-record a video for your class or colleagues and then broadcast it over Zoom.

- How to record a video for a pre-record Zoom meeting?
- How to record a Zoom meeting itself?
- How to share your recorded video in a Zoom meeting?
- How to share your pre-recorded Zoom meeting?
Why pre-record a Zoom meeting?
Pre-recording your Zoom meetings has many significant advantages. You can manage your time efficiently as you can do any other important work while the recorded presentation or lecture is being given via a pre-recorded video. You can prepare the meeting in advance, at the time you are free.
You can save your time which you can use to prepare for other lectures and meetings. It’s particularly helpful if you know you won’t need to answer any questions during the meeting, meaning it’s a one-way meeting only in-effect.
This will also help you save data too as you can use the same video again anytime you want. You can also share the video for the meeting via other channels so that they can easily refer to the subject material again in the future if needed.
How to record a video for a pre-record Zoom meeting?
Recording a meeting for your Zoom collaboration is a fairly simple process as long as you have a web camera and a microphone. Simply launch your favorite camera (or an app on your phone) and make the arrangement and start recording your session.
You can even add cuts in between if you wish to show external aids or if you end up making mistakes during your session.
On the other hand, you can also record everything in one go and edit out all your mistakes after your video has been recorded. Once recorded, simply use your favorite video editor to snip out all the parts of the clip that you want to remove from your recording.
Once you have recorded and edited your video, it’s ready to be shared on a Zoom meeting.
How to record a Zoom meeting itself?
You can also record a Zoom meeting which you can then later share to your group or class. Simply start a Zoom meeting with only you as the sole participant.
Complete your session and end the recording which should show up in your selected save location (it’s saved in the Zoom folder inside the Documents folder). In case you opted to record the meeting in the cloud, you will find it under the Recordings tab in your web client (here).
In case you decided to save it to a location on your local storage then it will be immediately available in your selected location. You can then even edit the recording if you wish to remove certain parts from it to make it easy to comprehend.
One advantage of recording a Zoom meeting instead of a video is that it will give you the ability to record your whiteboard notes as well as other screen share applications which will help you explain the concept much better to your class or colleagues.
How to share your recorded video in a Zoom meeting?
Sharing a recorded video to an ongoing Zoom meeting is a fairly simple process. Simply play the video using your desired video player and share this window in your ongoing Zoom meeting using the ‘Screen Share’ option. Be sure to enable the ‘Share computer sound’ checkbox in the bottom left corner.
Your colleagues and class will then be able to view the video and attend the lecture/session recorded by you without any unwanted interruptions.
This will also allow you to end the video in the desired time format and then take any questions or doubts after the video has been finished. This should, in turn, make the process more streamlined and efficient for both you and your meeting attendees.
How to share your pre-recorded Zoom meeting?
If you have recorded the Zoom meeting over the cloud then you can simply share the cloud recording with your fellow meeting attendees which will give them the ability to watch your session at their own pace.
This will allow you to answer their questions and queries in real-time which should help make your overall Zoom meeting efficient and beneficial for all the parties involved.
If you have recorded the Zoom meeting to your local storage, then you can simply play it using a video player on your PC or Mac and then ‘screen share‘ the player to your on-going Zoom meeting.
This will allow all the attendees to view the video in real-time along with you. For questions and doubts, you can hold a small conference at the end and address all the issues faced by your meeting attendees.

Recording a meeting on Zoom? You've come to the right place!
In this post, we offer a step by step guide to setting up your next Zoom recording and achieving the best results possible. It's an easy process, but there are limitations to recording resolution that you should keep in mind.
Next, we'll give you some easy tips to improve the look and sound of your next video call.
After that, we review our favorite gear for your teleconferencing setup.
Let's dive right in:
Setting up and Recording Your Next Zoom Call
Step 1: Dial in the Recording Settings
Once you've downloaded the latest version of Zoom , select Preferences in the Zoom.us menu. Next, navigate to the Recording tab.
Use the Store my recordings at dropdown menu to select a destination for your finished files. We've chosen one of our external Filmkraft drives:
mv2.jpeg/v1/fit/w_750,h_618,al_c,q_20/file.jpeg” alt=”Filmkraft's Zoom recording settings for editing” />
Next, make sure to check Record a separate audio file for each participant. This might be one of the best features that Zoom offers for video editing because it will allow you to work with separate audio tracks in post.
Lastly, click Optimize for 3rd party video editor.
Step 2: Check out the Video Settings
There are two settings in the Video Tab that might be of interest to anybody who will be filmed in the recording.
First, there's the Touch up my appearance option. This will put a slight blur on the image to smooth out skin tones. If you have time to do this in post, we recommend leaving this off.
Second, be sure to enable HD. In theory, checking this option would allow you to broadcast a 720p video. However, when we tried recording the video stream with this option both activated and deactivated, we saw very little difference. We still think it's a good idea to enable HD, but the video recording quality might not improve much because of it.
Let us know in the comments below if enable HD helped you achieve better recording quality.
Step 3: Audio
As of September 2020, Zoom has introduced a new High Fidelity Professional Audio option. Selecting this setting disables several features such as echo-cancellation and post processing, and raises the codec specs to 48Khz, 96Kbps mono/192kbps stereo!
One drawback is that this feature requires a very fast internet connection, so Zoom recommends a hard ethernet connection rather than wifi.
To select this mode, head to the Audio Tab and navigate all the way down to click on Advanced.
Once you're there, check Show in-meeting option to "Enable Original Sound" from microphone and then High fidelity music mode.
If you are recording music performances or interviews and have the bandwidth, we recommend that you check out this impressive feature.
mv2.png/v1/fit/w_300,h_300,al_c,q_5/file.png” alt=”Zoom Audio Recording Settings with High Fidelity Music Mode Selected” />
Step 4: Recording Basics
Starting a recording on Zoom is very easy. To begin, just click on the Record button in the menu bar.
mv2.jpeg/v1/fit/w_750,h_72,al_c,q_20/file.jpeg” alt=”Zoom Menu Bar Showing Record Button” />
IMPORTANT: If you are conducting an interview with somebody and would like to only record their video stream you must pin their video. Otherwise the video will cut back to you every time you speak or make a noise.
Remember, the finished package of audio and video files will only be generated after you leave the Zoom meeting.
Zoom Meeting Recording Quality
The footage you can expect when recording in this way will have the following specs:
Video format: .mp4
Frame rate: 25fps, the European PAL standard
Resolution: According to Zoom you should get 720P with a Free or Pro Account, and 1080P with Business or Enterprise. However, we were only able to record 1280 x 720 resolution on several occasions with our Pro account. The rest of the time our recordings were at 640 x 360 pixels, which is a big problem.
Audio: Recorded separately as .m4a files
We contacted Zoom about the resolution issue. They reminded us to set the application to full-screen mode and to make sure that the sender has a webcam and internet connection that was capable of sending 720P footage.
We followed these steps, but the result was still only 640×360. That's a bummer, but if you have a short timeframe to film a meeting or interview at a distance, Zoom will nonetheless get the job done.
Once you have joined your meeting, on the menu bar , click on record . It will then indicate that you are recording with a Stop recording button in the upper left corner of your screen . If you want to stop or pause your recording, click on this button.
Once your meeting has finished, and you have stopped recording, it will automatically start rendering. Once complete, the file is saved to a folder called Zoom under My Documents . You will need to ensure that you then save this folder to a USB or a networked drive, particularly if you are in a lecture theatre or on a student computer. If you do not save this, and the computer shuts down, you will be unable to retrieve your file.
If you have recorded the meeting on your own computer, you can keep it in the C:Drive and access the recording through the Zoom app on your desktop.

Zoom has a built-in screen recording tool which, if allowed by the meeting host, allows anyone to record a Zoom meeting. Zoom meeting can be recorded locally by free users, and recorded in the cloud by premium users. A recording captures everything however it may be overkill at times when a simple screenshot will do the job just as well.
Zoom meeting screenshot
Taking a screenshot in a Zoom meeting is easy since most desktop operating systems come with a built-in tool for taking a screenshot. The tool works universally i.e., it can capture all apps unless they have specifically restricted screenshots (Netflix).
Zoom also has a tool for taking screenshots and it’s up to users to choose whether they want to use the stock screenshot tool on their OS, or if they want to use the Zoom screenshot tool.
Zoom meeting screenshot – Stock tool
If you want to use the stock screenshot tool on your desktop OS to take a screenshot during a Zoom meeting, you only need to know the correct keyboard combination to use.
- On Windows 10, you can take a screenshot with the Win+PrntScrn keyboard shortcut. The shortcuts are saved to the Screenshots folder in your Pictures library.
macOS has lets users take screenshots of the entire screen, a window, or an area of the screen. The screenshots are saved to the Pictures folder.
- To take a full-screen screenshot, tap the Command+Shift+3 keyboard shortcut.
- To take a screenshot of the active window, tap the Command+Shift+4 keyboard shortcut. When the cursor changes to a crosshair, tap the Space bar.Click on the window you want to capture.
Zoom meeting screenshot – Zoom’s native tool
Zoom has its own screenshot tool but it isn’t enabled by default. To enable it, follow these steps. They apply to both the Windows 10 and the macOS app.
- Open the Zoom app.
- On the Home tab, click the cog wheel button under your profile picture.
- Go to the Keyboard Shortcuts tab.
- Expand Chat.
- Enable the Screenshot shortcut.
- On macOS, you will need to grant Zoom additional permissions before you can take screenshots.
- Once enabled, use the Command+T keyboard shortcut to take a screenshot on macOS.
- Use the Ctrl+T keyboard shortcut to take a screenshot on Windows 10.
The Ctrl+T or the Command+T keyboard shortcut is taken over by Zoom and you cannot use it in other apps if Zoom is running. This can be a problem since this same shortcut is used in browsers to open a new tab. The good news is, if you click the shortcut in Zoom’s settings, you can set a different/custom shortcut that doesn’t interfere with other apps.

CleanShox X – Screen Recorder
Mac offers a default screen recorder tool that you can use to record Microsoft Teams and even a Zoom recording. But it doesn’t record computer audio and only captures the device’s microphone. For a better experience, you can use a third-party app called CleanShot X.

Filmora – Video Editor
Some of the Microsoft Teams meetings can go on for long hours. As a result, you might end up with tens of gigs of recording footage from your preferred screen recorder tool.
Before you go ahead and share it, you can edit the video, remove troubling parts, add text where needed, and do a lot more with a dedicated video editor on Mac.
Filmora is one of the best video editors for Mac. For Microsoft Teams videos, you can use the software’s audio ducking function that fades one audio track down under another.
