Accessing Zoom Recordings in Panopto


These instructions pertain only to users with a Zoom Pro License.

Panopto and Zoom teamed up and created an application that bridges the two systems. As of 1/6/2020 and going forward, any Zoom meeting that has been or will be recorded to the Zoom Cloud will automatically be stored in Panopto as well. The storage available for Zoom recordings in Zoom is limited and requires that we delete recordings when our storage limits are reached. Panopto does not have the same limitations as Zoom so any recording that you need to keep from semester to semester can be stored in Panopto.

Two Ways of Accessing Zoom Recordings in Panopto

Accessing Via the Panopto Library

  1. Once your recording has stopped, it will automatically upload to your Zoom account and Panopto library. You will get an email notification when the Panopto video is ready to view.
  2. If you have previously logged into Panopto, videos will be located in a sub folder of your My Folder, titled “Meeting Recordings”. To log into Panopto to manage your recordings, navigate to and log in with your Moodle credentials.
  3. If you wish to, you can change the name of this folder under User Settings, which you can find by clicking on your name in the top right hand corner of the browser window:
    User Settings location
    Zoom recording import settings
  4. If you have not previously signed into Panopto, videos will go to a default folder on the Panopto site, and you will receive an email that includes a link to view the video (see below for more information.)
    1. If you would like to manage your Zoom videos in Panopto, and have not previously signed into Panopto, contact the OTS Help Center to have your Panopto account created.

Sharing My Meetings folder in Moodle

Faculty can adjust the share settings on the Meeting Recordings folder to share with Moodle courses. This allows a faculty member to generate a share link to the Meeting Recordings folder that can be added to Moodle. Once done, students on specific Moodle course rosters can click on the folder link in Moodle and will be presented with all meeting recordings done by a faculty member.

  4. Locate the Meeting Recordings folder and access it.
  5. In the top right hand corner, locate the gear icon and select.

  10. Click add activity or resource.
  11. Locate the Label option, and type in the label text box the wording for your link. Highlight the text and click the chain icon to insert a URL into the text.
