How to download your Zoom cloud recordings and upload them to your Moodle course with Kaltura.

Last Updated: July 26th, 2022

Zoom Recordings Auto Expire in 1 Year

Zoom cloud recordings are available until 1 year after the recording date. Uploading your cloud recordings to Kaltura will allow you to share, access, and store your recordings for longer periods of time.

Downloading and uploading video files requires ultra-fast internet service. We highly recommend using a hardwired connection on Main Campus. Even with an ultra-fast connection, it can take hours for the file process to complete — especially for long format meetings/recordings.

Some cloud recordings have more than one file denoted by the parentheses after the file name i.e. “Download (3 files)”. If this is the case, you may see a pop-up notification asking you to give Zoom permission to download. The pop-up location may vary depending on the browser you are using.
