How to record and upload live-streamed sessions to Swivl Teams

Swivl Live is a feature that enables you to minimize the Teams by Swivl app, open a 3rd party app, and continue to use Swivl tracking and Marker audio, but it does not record video through the Teams by Swivl App.

  • With the Pro Swivl Teams account, you can enable integration with Zoom. In this case, all your Zoom Cloud recording will be uploaded to Swivl Teams Web as well. For more information, please check the following article:  Zoom Integration with Swivl

    If you record live-streaming sessions to the Zoom Cloud without Swivl Teams-Zoom integration enabled, you will have to manually download videos from the Zoom Cloud and upload them to your Swivl Teams.

    To record live streaming sessions with Zoom and have them in your Swivl Teams account, please follow the instructions below:

    1. Set up your Swivl Robot and the mobile device for live-streaming. (Check possible live-streaming setups here.)

    2. Click on the Zoom icon in the Teams by Swivl app and start a session on your laptop/PC/mobile device.

    3. On the device which host the session, click on the Record button to start the recording.

    4. With Licensed Zoom account, you will have two options: Record to Computer or Record to the Cloud. Please select the latter one.

    If you use your mobile device with Zoom iOS or Zoom Android app and have Licensed Zoom account, you will have only one option in the mobile app - Record to the Cloud.

    These recordings won't be saved to your system, but will instead be saved to an online folder. The recording will process and appear under My Recordings on the web after you have ended the meeting.  It is not possible to store the recording locally on an iOS or Android device.

    However, every account can only save a certain amount of cloud recordings before running out of space. For information on how much space your account has, or how to buy more, check out Zoom's page on cloud recording.

    Also here's a Zoom support link for your reference Recording on iOS and Android 

    While recording using Zoom:

    1. If you are screen sharing, that's what is captured (along with a side bar of participants videos), there's no way to change this
    2. If you are not screen sharing, you can control what is captured (Gallery view vs speaker view). You can also force it to capture a single speaker by "spotlighting" it.
    3. Each separate recording will be uploaded as a separate file even if recordings were made during the same Zoom session.

    If you do not have any paid Zoom membership and would like to record while streaming you need to start your Zoom session from a laptop because only the web version of Zoom allows for recording of a session for Zoom free users. Please use The Swivl app will stream your video regardless if you are the person who initiated the Zoom meeting. You can be a general participant and join someone else's Zoom meeting and still live-stream with Swivl.

    We recommend using Integrated Audio setup while recording to computer.

    These recordings will be saved to the local storage of your computer/laptop. If you are not sure where are your recording, please check the following article: Finding and viewing local recordings

    Since such recordings occupy the computer storage space, please make sure you have enough storage available on your computer. As soon as recording is converted, you can upload it to your Swivl Teams and delete the video from your computer to spare its storage.

    When you finish recording, hit "Save" and keep the webpage open until uploading is completed.
