A feature to import videos directly from Zoom to the Loom platform.

What is a Zoom Import in Loom?

A Zoom Import in Loom is a feature that allows users to import and share their Zoom recordings directly on Loom. This feature is designed to make it easier for users to manage and distribute their video content, especially for those who frequently use Zoom for meetings, webinars, or other virtual events.

Once a Zoom recording is imported into Loom, users can take advantage of Loom's various features such as easy sharing, controlled access, viewer insights, and more. This integration provides a streamlined process for users to handle their Zoom recordings, enhancing productivity and collaboration.

How to import a Zoom recording into Loom?

To import a Zoom recording into Loom, you first need to have the recording file saved on your device. After a Zoom meeting is recorded, it is typically saved in a .mp4 format. Locate this file on your device and ensure it is ready to be uploaded.

Next, navigate to the Loom website and sign in to your account. Click on the "My Videos" tab on the left side of the screen. Then, click on the "Upload a Video" button on the top right corner of the screen. A window will pop up prompting you to select the file you wish to upload. Locate your Zoom recording file, select it, and click "Open". Your Zoom recording will then be uploaded to Loom. Please note that the time it takes to upload the video will depend on the file size and your internet speed.

Can you use Zoom recordings with Loom?

Yes, you can use Zoom recordings with Loom, but not directly. Zoom and Loom are two different platforms with different functionalities. Zoom is primarily used for live video conferencing, while Loom is used for recording and sharing video messages.

If you want to use a Zoom recording with Loom, you would first need to record your Zoom meeting or webinar, then download the recording to your device. Once you have the recording, you can upload it to Loom and share it from there. It's important to note that Loom does not have a direct integration with Zoom, so this process would need to be done manually.

What are the steps to import Zoom meetings into Loom?

Currently, there is no direct way to import Zoom meetings into Loom. Both Zoom and Loom are separate platforms with different functionalities. Zoom is primarily used for live video conferencing, while Loom is a video recording and sharing service.

However, you can record your Zoom meetings, download them to your device, and then upload them to Loom. To do this, start by recording your Zoom meeting. Once the meeting is over, Zoom will automatically convert the recording and you can save it on your computer. After you have the recording, log into your Loom account, click on the "Upload a Video" button, and select the Zoom recording from your files to upload it.

Remember that this is a workaround and not a direct import feature. Always ensure you have the necessary permissions to record and share any Zoom meetings.
