Recording without audience

Is it possible to record a meeting WITHOUT the attendee's faces?  I have scoured all of the forums and cannot find an answer to this.   Thanks!

So do you want to record just the host and shared screen, or no people at all?

Yes, no other people at all.  How can I do this?

Couple things to try:

 

  • Spotlight active speaker - This assures the audience only sees the speaker in the recording, and I believe it's like that on the recoding too if recording to the cloud - https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/201362653-Spotlighting-participants-videos
  • In your cloud recording settings, you can deselect recording video thumbnails, and record active speaker and shared screen together, or as separate files.kjhartma_0-1652717255385.png

     

    Try those to start, there could be more but those are the ones I remember off top of my head.

In addition to what I said before, you may or may not want to make sure participants cannot unmute, depending on your needs for the meeting.

I think that you can use "Stop incoming video" feature and start recording.
