Recordings stored in the cloud in Zoom are automatically transferred to QMplus Media/Kaltura. They are visible in your My Media area and you can use all of the Kaltura features such as auto-captioning, chaptering and editing as well as publishing them in QMplus or on websites.

You can also take advantage of the Kaltura video player which allows your viewers to customise how they view your video. Resizing or moving the picture in picture window or choosing to view just the presentation, or just the speaker. Whatever works best. This can be particularly useful if you are using Zoom to create pre-recorded lectures or presentations.

This guide describes how to set your recording settings in Zoom to take advantage of this feature.

What Zoom recordings look like in QMplus Media/Kaltura

By default, when zoom recordings transfer to QMplus, the speaker appears as a small fixed picture-in-picture.

By changing your recording settings on Zoom, you can ensure that when your recordings are transferred to QMplus Media/Kaltura they will make us of the Kaltura player, allowing the viewer to customise the display, including moving and resizing the speaker image.

Changing your Zoom recording settings

To change your Zoom recording settings:

Log in to Zoom on the web

Navigate to Settings > Recording and then go to the Cloud recording section.

  • Check the Record active speaker, gallery view and shared screen separately option.
  • Check the boxes for Active speaker and Shared screen
  • Select Save

Now when your recording transfers to Kaltura, the presenter will appear in a picture in picture in the recording.
