“Can I record a Zoom meeting with OBS? Zoom’s built-in Record option is not available for me and I need a third-party screen recorder to get it done. Is OBS a good choice?”

Yes, OBS can record Zoom meetings on your computer and is a good choice for recording. As an open-source screen recorder, OBS provides rich video/audio recording sources and enables you to record any on-screen content with audio for free. That makes it one of the most popular choices for recording Zoom meetings.

To record Zoom with OBS Studio:

Step 1. Download and install OBS Studio on your computer.

Step 2. Go to File > Settings > Output to set up the output options.

Step 3. Go to the Sources panel and click Add.

Step 4. Select and configure the recording sources you need, such as Window Capture (for the Zoom window) and Application Audio Capture (for Zoom audio).

Step 5. Click Start Recording in Controls to start recording the Zoom meeting.

Step 6. Once done, click Stop Recording and check the Zoom meeting by going to File > Show Recordings.

Alongside OBS Studio, many other tools are also helpful for Zoom recording. One of them is the free online service: SurFlex Online Free Screen Recorder. This web-based video recorder enables you to record Zoom meetings in HD for free, without any watermark or time limit.
