Before you start using the integration, make sure your Mediasite user profile's email address is formatted as firstname.lastname@example.org.
Verify the Email Address is formatted as email@example.com. If it is not, change the Email Address and optionally the Moderator Email Address, then select Save.
If you changed the email address, Mediasite will send you an email to re-validate your Mediasite profile. Check your email account and click on the validation link in the email to re-validate your Mediasite profile.
Configuring a Zoom meeting schedule to automatically import cloud recordings into Mediasite
Note: The scheduling option for importing your recording into Mediasite is not visible if you access Zoom via the navigation menu in your Canvas course. Please see this knowledge article for a workaround.
Within the schedule configuration under Meeting Options, select Automatically record meeting and then choose In the cloud. Alternatively, you can manually start the cloud recording during the meeting.
Under Import into Mediasite, selet Yes.
Note: These form fields may appear under Advanced Options in the Zoom client.
Select Save to save your Zoom meeting schedule.
After your recorded Zoom meeting has ended, Zoom will process the cloud recording and it will be automatically imported into Mediasite. Once the recording has been imported into your MyMediasite Drafts folder, you can move it to the appropriate channel or shared folder.
Important things to know
The integration with Zoom Cloud will not work unless your Mediasite profile's email address is formatted as firstname.lastname@example.org. See the instructions above for details.
The scheduling option for importing recordings into Mediasite is not available from the Canvas Zoom integration. Please see this knowledge article for a workaround, or schedule your meeting using the K-State Zoom website or the Zoom client.
The integration only imports recordings from the Zoom Cloud. It will not import Zoom meetings recorded locally to your computer. Mediasite Mosaic can be configured to automatically import recordings in your local Zoom recordings folder.
Imported recordings will be placed in your MyMediasite Drafts folder. Once the import is complete, you can move a recording to a channel or shared folder, if desired.
Recordings are not imported immediately. Zoom Cloud will require time to process the recording, and Mediasite will allocate some additional time for Zoom to complete transcription of the recording prior to import. Processing and importing the recording may take several hours, largely depending on the length of the recording and the availability of system resources in the Zoom Cloud.
If a Zoom Cloud transcript is available at the time of import, it will be imported with the recording as closed captions. However, it is common during periods of high Zoom Cloud usage that a transcript will not be ready before the recording is imported into Mediasite. Once the .vtt transcript is ready, it can be manually downloaded from Zoom Cloud and added to the Mediasite presentation. Remember, automatically transcribed captions should be edited for accuracy.
In the event a Zoom Cloud recording fails to import into Mediasite, the best course of action is to manually download the .mp4 recording from the Zoom Cloud and then upload it to Mediasite.
Recordings imported into Mediasite are not removed from the Zoom Cloud. It is a best practice to regularly review your Zoom Cloud storage as well as your Mediasite storage and remove recordings you no longer need.
