Why are my Zoom recordings in MediaSpace?

As of March 23, 2022, all Zoom Cloud recordings will automatically be imported to your DU MediaSpace account, which is also made accessible via Canvas. Your Zoom recordings are now Kaltura Media and can be found in your My Media. The My Media feature offers additional capabilities compared to Zoom, such as video editing, comprehensive cataloging capabilities, usage analytics, search capabilities, a quizzing tool, and larger storage capacity. By default, the Zoom host will become the video owner and the video will be private.

Will anyone be able to see my Zoom recordings?

No, all imported Zoom recordings will automatically be set as private in DU MediaSpace. Only the Zoom meeting host can see them until you decide to share them via a direct link or publish them in a channel.

How can I selectively share my Zoom recordings in MediaSpace?

The Zoom meeting host can share Zoom recordings from your My Media page via a direct link, embed code, or publishing your video in a channel.

  1. Click video Title.
  2. Click Actions, select Publish, then select Unlisted. Unlisted means that anyone with the share link can view the video.
