Remove participants names


On video settings I have un-ticked the box 'Always display participants names' however their names still appear for both eh meeting and on the recording. This means I can't share the recording so I really need to find a way to remove their names from being displayed. Any advice?

Cloud recordings have their own settings for how they record the meeting. To ensure that their names are not captured with the cloud recording, I recommend you edit your cloud recording settings and disable the Display participants' names in the recording option. Unfortunately, this will only affect future recordings, not your existing recording. 


I'm having this same issue. I don't use cloud recordings, however, I save to my local computer. I have unchecked the box in the video settings "Always display participant names on their video." But this hasn't solved the problem. My recordings still show the name in the lower left corner. Any suggestions, @Bort ? Thanks!
