Download Zoom cloud recordings and upload to Panopto

Before You Begin -

All Zoom cloud recordings made on or after July 6, 2020 should automatically be copied to Panopto, deleted from Zoom, and will only be available in Panopto. Using Panopto to store and share recordings provides better security, improved sharing options, and unlimited storage. Imported Zoom recordings are private by default and will not automatically be shared with anyone.  If you cannot find your recording in Panopto, but see it in Zoom, follow the directions below to manually move the recording.

For more information regarding the Zoom and Panopto Integration, please see Accessing, Sharing, and Customizing Your Zoom Recordings in Panopto.
