Remote work consists of several elements – the office software like WPS, Zoom, etc is rising to their feet. This passage focuses on introducing a Zoom video recorder for viewers to save important meetings or meeting calls in their daily remote working so that important details won’t be omitted with the loss of your memory.

Use Built-In Zoom Video Recorder to Record Meetings

Zoom does have a built-in recorder that allows participators and hosts in a meeting to record the current event. This feature is considerate but not that convenient as you might imagine. In fact, this internal meeting recorder has some latent limitations.

Here are the how-to steps to leverage this typical feature.
By default, when you start up or join a Zoom (video/voice) meeting via URL, you will see a Record button located in the right bottom toolbar. By manually clicking this button and choose a recording mode (Notice: Only paid users are allowed to select from the recording modes), you can start the real-time capture, pause and end it as you like. The file will be converted and available to watch when the meeting ends.

Speak of the recording modes, Zoom gives free users a 40-min allotment while for paid users, Zoom provides them another cloud recording choice – All premium plan users be they Pro, Business, Education, or Zoom Rooms – are given some free cloud space, 0.5 or 1GB.

Precaution: Zoom screen sharing recording uses about 20 MB of storage per hour while video recording uses about 200 MB of storage an hour, please make sure you prepare adequate disc memory for the recordings.

The Limitations of the Built-In Zoom Video Recorder

1. The host of a meeting is born with strengths to give permissions to participators if they want to record the current meeting. The rights he is able to delegate including giving every single attendee the privilege to record, the capability to auto-record. These rights, however, are seen as limitations from the perspective of participators.

2. For local recording, only PC users could enjoy the benefit of this feature, so for mobile users of Zoom, they are forced to turn to cloud recording or any standalone recording app for help if they want to record any Zoom meeting.

3. For paid users, Zoom enables cloud recording automatically, so you should be very aware of your cloud storage.

4. Another risk of Zoom recording is that if the meeting is suddenly blackout for loss-of-internet or something else, the recording on the going will be corrupted and unable to recovery.

• Capturing Zoom Meeting Calls

RecMaster used to deliver excellent performance on recording online radio, capturing online music, ripping soundtracks from music videos. Let alone some simple effort on Voice recording.

1. Open RecMaster as normal and choose Audio-Only Mode.

2. And also, we need to set up specific settings for better performance of our videos.
Procedures are not so similar to those when we record in Custom Area but much simpler.

3. Choose the audio format (mp3) > turn on system sound > turn off the microphone.

Final Words: What If Your Zoom Recording Has No Sound on Mac?
Generally, Zoom and similar online meeting apps handle the web conference sound in their own way to protect the conference audio, which gives rise to this no sound issue when using a non-Zoom video recorder. But as long as you’ve got the permission of meeting host and participants, RecMaster can work this problem out with the help of its sound driver, which is enabled by default on Windows computer while on Mac, you should select in your Zoom app -> Settings -> Audio -> Speaker as follows.
