Can you record a meeting via QuickTime?


Apologies if this is redundant, but I can't seem ti find a definitive answer.

Does Zoom block people from recording meetings using QuickTime?


I was a participant in a meeting that I did not own/initiate. 

I tried to record a meeting via QuickTime on my Macbook Pro to reference later.

It started recording, then stopped at least once. I stopped paying attention.

Anything that I recorded was not saved, unlike other QuickTime recordings. 


When I do a "test meeting" with just myself and initiate it, I can record it, but that's just with myself.

Hello @Bill_B

This topic has been brought up before in the community. Here is one post that I have found related to Quicktime recordings.

Please let me know if this is helpful for you. To my knowledge, you can use third-party apps to record in a meeting. I have used ScreenPal 3.0 before and it makes a high definition quality recording of my screen that I am sharing. This is what I use to send to customers when I am attempting to share with them how a function of Zoom should work. I hope that this helps.
