Online meetings can be recorded in several ways. You can share recordings with other participants through social networks and video-sharing sites, or you can embed links on your own website. Internal users may also be able to share recordings through their company intranet or CRM software. Cloud-based recording providers also send links to recorded meetings via email or team chat applications. You can also place these links on your website’s landing page.
Legality of recording online meetings
If you are considering recording online meetings, there are many things to consider before you begin. First, you must determine whether recording the meeting is legal in your jurisdiction. The majority of European and American states allow recording. However, companies should always consult their attorneys to ensure that they comply with the law. Also, recording online meetings may violate the privacy of some participants. For this reason, companies should make sure they provide notice of recording to everyone involved in the meeting.

It’s turning out to become a decent alternative to Zoom and to the other major platforms.
For example, recording a videoconference call is legal in many jurisdictions, but the specific laws vary. In the US, recording a call is governed by the Electronic Communications Privacy Act. Under this act, the recording of a videoconference call requires the consent of at least one party, although that consent does not need to be ‘active’. Some states have also drafted their own recording laws.
In Australia, recording meetings is legal as long as both parties give their consent. Two-party consent laws are similar to those in the US and Canada. In South Africa, recording meetings is regulated by the Regulation on Interception of Communications. However, in some countries, such as the UK, a recording of a videoconference may be deemed unlawful.
Recording an online meeting can be illegal if you do not obtain consent from each party. Some states have specific laws prohibiting recording a videoconference with your boss without their consent. In Pennsylvania, for example, it is illegal to record a videoconference with your boss unless the other parties in the meeting have also given their consent.
Reuse of recorded meetings for future purposes
The ability to record online meetings is an important benefit for a number of reasons. It allows you to keep a record of the meeting and avoid confusion over who said what. Also, a recording makes it possible to add annotations. Furthermore, an intelligent video content management system can automate the management of recordings. It can integrate with video conferencing platforms, auto-ingest meeting recordings, and trim and sequence them. This makes it easier to find and use important parts of the meeting in the future.
If you’d like to use the recorded online meeting for future purposes, make sure you have a secure video content management system (VCMS). Many online meetings solutions, like Zoom, aren’t designed to handle recorded meetings. You need an enterprise video management platform that offers secure storage and centralized video recordings. VIDIZMO, for example, provides a YouTube-like video portal for all meetings and helps you manage your recordings in one place.
Before recording your meetings, make sure you inform the attendees of the recording, and ask for their consent. If attendees are not comfortable with video sharing, you can ask them to mute the video recording or post their questions only in the text chat window.
Getting consent from participants
Before recording an online meeting, it is important to get consent from participants. You can get consent through a written disclaimer that is provided online or through the call’s calendar invitation. Additionally, you can display a visual notification that the meeting is being recorded. If participants object to being recorded, they should be asked to exit the meeting.
Getting consent from participants before recording an online meeting is especially important if you are recording a videoconference call. The laws governing video conference calls vary by state, but in most cases, companies must get the consent of all participants. For example, in New York, you may be allowed to record the meeting only if all participants consent. But if you are recording an online meeting in Connecticut, you must obtain the consent of at least one of the attendees.
If the participants don’t consent, the recording may be illegal. You’re likely to be sued in civil and criminal lawsuits if you don’t get the consent of all the participants. The good news is that most video conferencing platforms have consent features. However, you should always verbally notify all participants before hitting the red button.
Consent is vital for any research involving human subjects. Informed consent requires that prospective participants understand the research and its risks before giving consent. The informed consent process should be as detailed as possible and ensure that the prospective participants are aware of the risks and benefits of participating.
