Zoom Recordings

If you choose to record a Zoom meeting to the cloud, your recording will be stored in BYU-Idaho’s video sharing platform, MediaSpace (a.k.a Kaltura). They are accessible through My Media in Canvas and on video.byui.edu. Shortly after finishing your recording, you will receive an email that looks like this:

How to Share Screen in Zoom Recording

To make sure that your shared screen is shown in the zoom recording:

1. Go to byui.zoom.us (not the application) and click "Account"

2. Go to "Settings" on the left then "Recording" in the top navigation

3. Then under "Cloud Recording" select from the first 3 options of how you would like your shared screen recorded.

  1. If you want only the current active speaker recorded with the shared screen, select "Record active speaker with shared screen
  2. If you want everyone visible (gallery view), along with the shared screen, make sure that "Record gallery view with shared screen" is checked.
  3. "Record active speaker, gallery view and shared screen separately" will record each of these seperately (so the gallery view or speaker will not be layered on top of the shared screen, like the in the previous options). This allows the recording viewer to switch between a view of the shared screen and participants.
