Zoom offers two recording options:


Local recording is available to free and paid subscribers.  Local recordings allow you to record local presentations, meetings, and video calls.  The recording can be stored on your local drive, integrated with Google Drive, or pushed to a network drive or folder.  The recorded file can be uploaded to your company streaming server or public streaming server such as Vimeo or Youtube.


Cloud recording is available for paid subscribers.  Cloud recording allows you to capture video and then share the content via a browser via HTML5 or Flash.
