Why should I not use Zoom for pre-recorded videos?

While it’s possible to schedule a meeting with yourself in Zoom, share your screen and record it, we don’t recommend doing so, because:

  • You are relying on an internet connection to record video and audio.
  • Using a slow or unstable Wifi connection may result in video and audio dropouts. (What does this sound like?).
  • Audio dropouts will result in Zoom not picking up your voice properly, thus not being able to transcribe the words you say.
  • As a result of not transcribing your audio correctly, Zoom will produce illegible captions, which will be picked up by Panopto.
  • You will have to spend a lot of time on correcting Zoom’s illegible captions in Panopto.
