How do I remove the participants' name from the video box? I don't name the person's name to show within the recording.
I didn't change any settings online, but this started happening after I downloaded an updated Zoom version several days ago.
So you typically can't remove the name in the recording once it's there, (likely need some video editing software to try it) but you can prevent it from happening in the future.
In your user settings for Recording (access via the web), under the Advanced Setting for Cloud Recordings, there's an option you can uncheck for "Display participants' names in the recording". Uncheck this and hit the Save button, note you have to do this before your next meeting for this to take effect.
Also, if you record to your local machine, I don't believe the name shows up in the corner in the person's video. At least that's how it used to be, not sure if it still is or not.
If you don't want peoples' names to show in the corner of their video while the meeting is taking place, in the Zoom app, click Settings, then click Video on the left. If you scroll down a little there's another checkbox for "Always display participant names on their video" that you can uncheck.
I'm also experiencing this issue. I tried to do what @kjhartma said here: If you don't want peoples' names to show in the corner of their video while the meeting is taking place, in the Zoom app, click Settings, then click Video on the left. If you scroll down a little there's another checkbox for "Always display participant names on their video" that you can uncheck.
But even with the box unchecked, it still shows the person's name in the recording. Anyone else have a solution? Thanks!
Local recording?? It may always be there now from some other stuff I've read. Try cloud recording and going into your cloud settings to uncheck that option. That display thing I mentioned in the app is only for during the meeting, sorry for confusion. It won't show names that way unless you mouse over the zoom windows.
Or are you trying not to even have the box with the name of someone not on camera show up?
