Manually Sharing Zoom Recordings

When we record our lecture and put it on Zoom, it is recommended to manage who can access your videos.


  1. Login with your HKU Portal account.
  2. In the navigation menu, click Recordings You will see a list of cloud recordings that you started.
  1. Click Share to display the recording link information and sharing settings, such as disabling downloads from viewers and requiring a password to view. These settings are honored for any videos under the original recorded meeting.
  1. Share this cloud recording box pop-up. The following setting is recommended:
    • Enable Share this recording – Only authenticated users can view: Signed-in users in my account
    • Disable Viewers can download – if you don’t want viewers to download it (Optional).
    • Enable Passcode protection – Requires users to enter a password before viewing or downloading the recording. After toggling this to on, enter a custom password and click Save.
    • Copy Sharing Information: Copies the link and password (if enabled) to your cloud recording. You can post this Sharing Information on Moodle.

Please visit the Zoom help centre to know more about how to manage and share your recordings.
