Setting Up VidGrid's Zoom Integration:
VidGrid’s Zoom integration allows you to pass recordings from your Zoom meetings directly to your VidGrid account. To set up Zoom integration on your VidGrid account, you’ll need two things. The first is a VidGrid account, and the second is a Zoom Pro account or higher.
To start setting up the Zoom integration, first go into Zoom under “advanced options,” then choose “Zoom for developers.” The first time you do this, there will be a few extra steps.
Click on Zoom API, then click on API credentials. The first time you go to this page, you’ll be asked to enter some information before you get started. Then, you’ll be brought to a page that has your API key, your API secret, and your IM Chat History Token. Once you have those, go to VidGrid, go under “account settings,” go to “integrations,” and scroll down to “Zoom integration.” In this section, enter your API key, your API secret, and your IM Chat History Token (where it says “access token”).
Now, you’ll have to create an auth user. The auth user acts as a fallback for Zoom. If Zoom can’t find anyone with your exact account in VidGrid, it’ll add your recording to this fallback account. The auth user email address must have a VidGrid account tied to it. The auth password does not have to be your VidGrid or Zoom password. After entering your auth user and auth password, go back to Zoom, scroll up, and click on Webhook. Use the endpoint from VidGrid, the auth user, and the auth password there.
The Zoom integration is now officially set up. But before you start using it, go back to your account settings in Zoom to make a couple of quick changes:
- Under the recording tab, make sure the “push notification to subscription url when a cloud recording is available” option is enabled. If it’s not, click “on.” This will notify you when your recording has been uploaded to Zoom.
- Make sure “auto-delete cloud recording after a certain number of days” is enabled. You should enable this because you don’t want to use up all of your Zoom storage when all of your Zoom recordings will be available on VidGrid.
One last note: Zoom’s upload and transcoding process can take 30 to 60 minutes even for a quick 10-15 minute video. Unfortunately, VidGrid can’t speed up that process.
Now that the integration is all set up, you can simply navigate to Zoom, create a meeting, record to cloud, and your video will automatically appear in VidGrid when it’s done. Reach out to your organization’s account manager, or contact VidGrid through chat if you’d like to set up the Zoom integration.
