Each user in Vidyard has a personal folder where videos that they record or upload are organized. With the Vidyard for Zoom integration, any meeting or webinar that you record to the cloud will be automatically uploaded to your personal folder in Vidyard.
- The Vidyard for Zoom integration must be set up in your account
- You must be a licensed (paid) Zoom user
- You must have the Cloud Recording setting enabled
- The email address that you use for your Zoom account must be the same as the email address associated with your user in Vidyard

Locate your Zoom recording in Vidyard

- Your personal folder will be named according to the following format: "personal account - firstname.lastname@example.org"
You will find the Zoom recording as a video in your folder (the title of the video may differ depending on how the meeting was created — e.g. directly from Zoom, via Google Calendar, via Slack, etc).
- Click on the title of the video to open the edit page.
- Each recording imported to Vidyard will include the time and date in the video description.

Can I still upload Zoom meetings to Vidyard without Cloud Recording enabled?
Don't have the ability to record to the cloud in Zoom? No problem. You can always take any Zoom meetings that you've recorded locally to your computer and upload the file to your video library in Vidyard.
Why do I have 2 copies of my Zoom meeting in Vidyard (a video and an audio-only recording)?
When you have the setting to Record an audio only file enabled in Zoom, you will receive 2 uploads into your personal folder in Vidyard: both a video and an audio-only recording of the meeting.
Does the host have to record the meeting in order for the video to upload to Vidyard?
It does not matter whether the host permits another participant to record the meeting. So long as the email address associated with the meeting creator's Zoom and Vidyard accounts are the same, the recording will always upload to their personal folder in Vidyard.
