  1. Locate the Local Recording by following the instructions on the link above, then enable Only authenticated users can view instead of leaving it accessible publicly. This will require users to authenticate via Passport York in order to be able to view it.

  3. Enable Passcode protection, as shown below. This will require viewers to enter a passcode (set by you) in order to be able to access the recording. This will ensure that no one can access the recording without your permission.

Local recording allows participants to record meeting video and audio locally to a computer. The recorded files can be uploaded to a file storage service like Dropbox, Google Drive, or a streaming service like YouTube or Vimeo.
