Capture Zoom meeting using Zoom H.323/SIP Room Connector
If your organization has the Zoom H.323/SIP Room Connector enabled, you can use REC.VC to capture video, audio and content in Zoom meetings. The recommended way is to connect your REC.VC account to Zoom by placing a call from the REC.VC user interface to the Zoom meeting using Zoom the SIP Dial String format:
|Meeting feature||SIP Dial String|
|Meetings without a passcode, |
default Zoom layout
|[Meeting ID]@[IP Address]|
|Meetings with a passcode, |
default Zoom layout
|[Meeting ID].[Passcode]@[IP Address]|
|Meetings with a passcode,|
Zoom Layout selection
|[Meeting ID].[Passcode].[Layout]@[IP Address]|
|Meetings without a passcode, |
Zoom Layout selection
|[Meeting ID]..[Layout]@[IP Address]|
[Meeting ID], [Passcode] and [IP Address] can be found in the Meeting Invitation available via your Zoom account. We recommend that you use the IP address in the same Country/Region as where your REC.VC account is provisioned. For reference, the following table provides an overview of the REC.VC Locations with corresponding Zoom Locations and IP Addresses (as of November 12, 2020):
|REC.VC Location||Zoom Location||Zoom IP Address|
|Ashburn, USA||US East||184.108.40.206 |
|Oslo, Norway||Germany or Netherlands||220.127.116.11 or 18.104.22.168|
By default, if the Dial String does not include [Layout], REC.VC will capture the Zoom Gallery View Layout. The following table provides an overview of the Zoom Layouts available based on [Layout] inclusion in Dial String:
|Gallery ||Default (No [Layout] in Dial String)|
|Full Screen||11 in Dial String|
|Active||1111 in Dial String|
The Dial String for the Zoom meeting is entered as Source address in the REC.VC user interface:
The following REC.VC features are also available when using the Zoom H.323/SIP Room Connector for capture:
- REC.VC Mixing of video and content based on the available REC.VC layouts
- REC.VC Automatic export of recordings to any (S)FTP(S) server on your side
Both features are available for REC.VC Admins. To get Admin permission to your account and additional description of how the features work, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Capture Zoom meeting using Zoom Custom Live Streaming (RTMP)
To simply capture the Zoom meeting, without any layout options on Zoom or REC.VC side, you can use the REC.VC RTMP recorder. Here is how to configure it for your Zoom account.
In your REC.VC account, set Source to RTMP(S) and copy the Stream URL of your account:
In your Zoom web account, go to Meetings > Personal Room > Live Streaming and click on Edit under Configure custom live stream … (If this is not available in your Zoom web account, contact your Zoom administrator to get it enabled for you).
Copy the Stream URL from your REC.VC account into the Stream URL field in the Zoom interface, and move the <stream-key> part of the URL (after /rec/) to the Stream key field. As this feature is only used for recording and not live streaming, you may enter any address as the Live streaming page URL.
With the Custom Live Streaming feature configured in your Zoom web account, you can start securely recording your Zoom meetings with REC.VC by clicking on More and Live on Custom Live Streaming Service in the Zoom User Interface:
Unless you change the Custom Live Streaming configuration inside your Zoom web account, the REC.VC RTMP recorder will always be two clicks away whenever you are in your Zoom room.

Why Effective Organizations Already Use Video Recording for Meetings
Leading organizations already understand the added value of recording meetings and have made them part of a productivity and efficiency solution:
- Gathering staff together for meetings is difficult and just a single late participant can throw behind a dozen or more schedules. Organizational productivity is held hostage by the logistics required to gather everyone needed to participate.
- Meetings generate important, valuable information that persists indefinitely, but can only be accessed by the participants, particularly those who took careful notes. That content and value cannot be effectively unlocked or shared outside of the meeting.
Resolving those challenges is the key to improving efficiency, boosting performance, and creating value… and REC.VC does all of them, and more!
Stream & Record Video Meetings and More
The only factors that have prevented more widespread use of meeting recordings are simplicity and convenience: most organizations don’t have access to the resources or technical expertise required to make recording easy and accessible. REC.VC is the agile and affordable solution that empowers any organization to stream, record, and share, from anywhere and any online connected device.
