moderated virtual recorder vs total recorder vs zoom recorder


Justin Williams
 

I apologize for the way these questions are asked, but I don't know another way to do this.

 

 

I've just downloaded virtual recorder.

What is the difference between that and total recorder?

 

From what I just read, total recorder is an item for which I would have to pay.

 

I am looking to start having zoom meetings?

 

Are either of these two better than the zoom recorder?

 

 

Should I invest time in learning one of them?

 

Thanks,

If you are the meeting host on Zoom, you don't need these other programs.  The Zoom recorder is strait forward and gives you both the audio and audio plus video file of the meeting.

Hi Justin,

I can answer your questions about the Zoom and Virtual recorders. You can record Zoom sessions only if you are the host, cohost, or if the host gives you permission. You can record to your PC or to the cloud. However, if you are attending a  Zoom session, the folks  running it may not want anyone else to record it with Zoom, so you won’t get permission to do so in that situation. Virtual Recorder lets you record anything that comes through your computer including Zoom sessions. It is on your computer and you can record without anyone else knowing and      you don’t need permission from anyone.  I know that Total Recorder does have a paid license . Not sure if it has a limited free version.

HTH.

Hi, Justin and Terrie. Total Recorder does have an evaluation version, but when recordings are made, a noise is inserted into the recording periodically. One good thing about Total Recorder, though, is that, once you buy the software, all version upgrades within the purchase level are free. By this I mean that, you cannot upgrade from the audio only version to the audio and video version for free, but if you buy the audio version, all audio version upgrades are free. Also, if you buy the audio/video version, all version upgrades within the audio/video version of the software are free.

I personally think that using the Zoom recorder would be a lot easier to learn if all you want to do is to record Zoom meetings you are hosting. For me, recording locally works much better except that at the end of a meeting, you have to give the computer enough time to process the recording before closing down Zoom.

 

Kindly,
