I am new to using Jitsi Meet and want to record a meeting and store it on my computer. Is this possible? How? I tried the recording function but that only seemed to give the option to share my screen? I saw someone on YouTube recommended using RecordRTC, but that doesn’t seem to be broadly used. What is a safe way to record a meeting?
Are you using your own installation of Jitsi or the public instance at meet.jit.si? If using the public instance, your recordings are indeed local (local Recording) with the file being saved to your downloads folder on your computer.
Not necessarily. You should be able to tell from the link - it will show the URL of the server. On meet.jit.si, your recordings are stored locally (you can try it yourself). If it’s a private server though, they may not have the feature enabled or may be doing serverside recording instead (which is only available to the meeting host).
This may sound a stupid question but how you stop the recording? If I go to More actions → Stop recording I get the confirmation dialog
However I do not get any recording in my downloads folder. What am I doing wrong?
Did you click “Confirm”? And after that, you don’t get the recorded file in your downloads folder?
Maybe check to confirm your setting has “Downloads” as the default directory for downloaded files.
Also, what browser are you using?
Yes, I clicked and I did not get a recorded file. However your question about what browser I use, made me test on another one. So the conclusion seems to be that recording does not work on Opera on MS Windows 10 Enterprise N 64-bit (both updated to the latest).
