When it comes to recording Zoom meetings, one thing that is often overlooked is the video quality. By default, Zoom will record your meetings in standard definition (SD) quality, but did you know that you can change this setting to high definition (HD)? In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to change the video quality on Zoom recordings.
Step 1: Open your Zoom settings
Before you start recording your meeting, you need to change a setting in your Zoom account. To do this, open the Zoom desktop client and click on your profile picture in the top right corner. From the dropdown menu, select “Settings”.
Tip: If you’re using the web version of Zoom, click on the gear icon in the top right corner instead.
Step 2: Go to Recording settings
In the left-hand menu of the Settings window, click on “Recording”. This will take you to a page where you can customize various settings related to recording in Zoom.
Step 3: Enable HD video recording
Scroll down until you see the “Recording Quality” section. Here, you will find an option called “Enable HD”. Click on the toggle switch next to it to turn it on.
Note: Enabling HD video recording will use more storage space and take longer to process after your meeting ends. Make sure you have enough disk space and processing power before turning this feature on.
Step 4: Start recording your meeting
Once you’ve enabled HD video recording in your settings, start your meeting as usual. When it’s time to start recording, click on the “Record” button at the bottom of your screen and choose “Record to Cloud” or “Record on this Computer”, depending on where you want to store your recording.
– If you don’t see the “Enable HD” option in your settings, it may be because your Zoom account is not licensed for HD video. Contact your Zoom administrator to upgrade your account.
– If you experience performance issues or audio sync problems while recording in HD, try lowering the video resolution or using a wired internet connection instead of Wi-Fi. – If you’re recording on a Mac, make sure you have the latest version of macOS and QuickTime Player installed. Some older versions may not support HD video recording in Zoom.
- Summary: Changing the video quality on Zoom recordings is easy and can greatly improve the viewing experience for your audience. Just make sure you have enough storage space and processing power to handle HD video before enabling this feature.
