Import from Zoom

Connect your Zoom account to manually or automatically import cloud recordings to Wistia.

Note
This integration isn’t available yet, but will be coming soon!

Setting up the integration

To get started with the Wistia-Zoom integration, you’ll need a Zoom account with Cloud recordings enabled. You can connect your Zoom account to Wistia in one of three ways:

Connecting Zoom in a Project

In the “Add” menu for a Project, there is an option to “Import from Zoom.” If there isn’t an active Zoom account connected, clicking on this option will show a prompt that allows you to login with your Zoom account and connect it to Wistia.

Once you enter your Zoom credentials and successfully connect, you will be redirected back to your Project, where you can configure your integration settings or continue on to manually import recordings.

Connecting Zoom in Account Settings

If you navigate to your user profile (Account > Settings > Personal), under the “My Integrations” section, there will be an option to connect Zoom.

Clicking Connect will prompt you to login to Zoom and after successfully connecting you’ll be brought back to the user profile page where you can configure auto-import or head back to a project where you can Import your recordings.

Adding the Wistia app in the Zoom App Marketplace

One additional way to set up the Wistia-Zoom integration is to add the Wistia app from the Zoom App Marketplace. Steps to add the app are as follows:

  1. Navigate to https://marketplace.zoom.us/
  2. Search for the “Wistia” app in the Zoom App Marketplace or find the listing in the Recordings category
  3. Once on the listing for Wistia, click the “Add” button and go through the setup flow
  4. After successfully completing setup you’ll land on your User Profile page in Wistia where you can configure your integration settings or jump into one of your projects to get started importing your previous recordings.

Importing Zoom cloud recordings

Once Zoom is connected, you can either automatically import new cloud recordings or manually import recordings from the past 30 days.

Tip
If there are any transcripts associated with the cloud recordings those will also be imported into Wistia and can be used as captions in the player.

Configuring automatic imports

After setting up the integration, there will be an option to “auto-import cloud recordings initiated from Zoom.” If this option is selected, any new cloud recordings will be automatically imported into your Wistia account.

Note
Cloud recordings will be automatically imported either to the project where you originally connected the integration or to the project you selected in the configuration settings

To change this setting, navigate to Account > Settings > Personal. You can toggle this option on/off or you can select a specific project where you want cloud recordings to be imported to.

Manually importing

To manually select recordings you want to import, you can choose the “Import from Zoom” option in a Project. If there is an active Zoom integration, this will display a screen that allows you to select any cloud recordings (from the last 30 days) that you want to import into Wistia.

Disconnecting the Integration

To disconnect the integration in Wistia:

  • Log in to your Wistia account and navigate to Account > Settings > Personal (or click here)
  • Select the “Disconnect” option under the Zoom integration
  • All done! This will disconnect the integration and revoke your Zoom credentials.

To remove the Wistia app from your Zoom account:

  • Log in to your Zoom account and navigate to the Zoom App Marketplace.
  • Click Manage > Added Apps or search for the Wistia app.
  • Click the ‘Remove’ button.
