Finding your recording is easy when you know where to look.
There are two types of recordings that you can do in Zoom, Cloud Recording and Local Recording. As the names imply, Cloud Recordings are saved on cloud storage and can be accessed through your Zoom account, while Local Recording are saved to your local machine and can be access through your Zoom Client Application. In this article, we will discuss Zoom recordings in more details.
Cloud recording allows you to record meeting video (active speaker) and audio in the Zoom Cloud where the file can then be downloaded and/or streamed in your browser. The recorded meeting link can be sent to a user's email where it can be viewed or downloaded. You may access your cloud recordings through Zoom Dashboard and/or the Zoom Client Application

There are pros and cons to both Cloud Recordings and Local Recordings. Cloud Recordings do not require local space on your machine and sharing them is as simple as sharing a link, but they require internet connection to be accessed and played, while Local Recordings use up space on your machine but they are accessible and playable even when your machine is offline.
