Bulk transfer Zoom recordings

If you need assistance with bulk transferring videos over to DU MediaSpace, please contact . The process for bulk transfer requires cooperation between the Zoom owner of the recordings and IT. This is the process:

  1. The Zoom owner needs to rename each recording that needs to be transferred. A good naming convention will help you find specific recordings later in DU MediaSpace. For example, “Bill Jackson’s Personal Meeting” –> “Sustainability Committee Meeting 3/1/2021 – Save”. Contact once you are done renaming your recordings.
  2. IT will then download the “Record active speaker with shared screen” Zoom format for each video that was renamed.
  3. IT will then FTP the Zoom recordings to Kaltura. A .csv file will also also be created that contains the title, owner and tags.
  4. Kaltura admin will then upload the .csv into the Kaltura system and test to see if the upload was successful. If results were successful, the client will be contacted that the job is complete.
