Access and share Zoom recordings in Kaltura

On this page:


Cloud recordings are deleted from Zoom after 30 days. UITS does not recommend sharing recordings directly from Zoom.

At Indiana University, when you make a cloud recording in Zoom, the recording is stored temporarily in Zoom and a copy is sent to your personal Kaltura account where you can control how long the recording is available and who can access it. For more about recording a meeting in Zoom, see Create and store recordings of Zoom meetings.

Source files from Kaltura may download with an incorrect file extension, and such files will not play on most computers. To fix this, rename your downloaded file by removing the existing extension and replacing it with .mp4. Downloading anything other than "source" will work around this problem.

Access your recording in Kaltura

  1. On the UITS Kaltura page, click Login.
  2. At the upper right, open the user menu (labeled with your name) and choose My Media.
  3. Locate the recording you wish to publish; if it is a recent recording, it should be at or near the top of your list of media.

    Your recording's default name will be the same as the topic of the meeting room in which the recording was made. Giving it a more descriptive name helps you to easily distinguish it from other recordings made in the same meeting room. To rename the item:

    1. To the right of your recording's thumbnail image, click Edit.
    2. In the "Name" field, enter a descriptive name. Consider including the date of the recording in the name.
    3. Enter a description and/or tags as desired.
    4. Click Save to save your changes.
