When you need to participate in an online meeting, it is essential to use a meeting software such as Zoom Meeting. As one of the widely used online meeting software, it offers a lot of convenience to people. Not only you can participate in video or audio meetings, but also can you share your computer desktop so that other meeting attendees can view the content simultaneously.

Today, we will introduce the built-in recorder on Zoom Meeting to record a Zoom video, which allows people who did not join in time to watch the Zoom meeting afterward. And we also present you with other effective programs that can be used as Zoom video recorder, allowing you to record Zoom meetings in different situations. Now let's dive in.

Part 1. Built-in Zoom Video Recorder to Record Meeting with Permission

The Zoom Meeting desktop client offers free and premium users the ability to record videos of meetings. Whether you are the host or the participant, you will be able to use the built-in Zoom video recorder during the Zoom meeting. However, the attendees need permission from the host to use this feature, while the host can enable the recording feature for everyone or grant it to only some participants.

When using the recording feature in a Zoom meeting, everyone will be informed that the meeting is being recorded. When the Zoom meeting is over, the free users can only save the meeting recording locally, while the premium users can choose to save the recorded meeting video to the cloud, which saves storage space on their computers.
