Adding Zoom videos to PlayPosit
The PlayPosit integration with Zoom allows institutional partners to add interactivity and accountability to all hosted video content. Once the integration is completed by the administrator, instructors/designers can pull Zoom cloud recordings following the steps below:
1. Navigate to the PlayPosit dashboard and click Add New Bulb.
2. Select Zoom to access your library of cloud recordings.
- Note: If the Zoom button is not available to you, this means your institution has not purchased the Zoom integration or it has not yet been set up by your administrator.
3. Select the Month of the recording you would like to use.
- Note: Certain Zoom configurations may only support storing cloud recordings from the last 6 months.
4. Select the recording you would like to use in PlayPosit and start building your Bulb.
- Note: If during the Zoom recording there was a screen share or a webcam on, you can select either option.
Note: The settings gear in the player or designer will show duplicate sets of captions until a Zoom video is deleted according to Zoom retention policy. We will be updating this article if this setting is changed in the near future. Currently both caption options will work identically.
