Play a meeting recording
The recording will be available after the meeting was scheduled to end (so not necessarily when it actually ends).
If you were part of a scheduled meeting, go the Details tab of the meeting event in your calendar and select the recording.
If it was a channel meeting, go to the channel conversation and select the recording.
You can also select More actions on the meeting recording and choose Open in OneDrive if it was a chat meeting, or Open in SharePoint if it was a channel meeting.
Important: If your organization still uses Microsoft Stream (not OneDrive and SharePoint), you can go to Stream and select My Content > Videos to play the recording.
Note: Closed captions are not yet available in Teams meeting recordings on OneDrive and SharePoint.
Meeting recording storage and permissions
Teams meeting recordings will be stored in OneDrive or SharePoint, depending on the type of meeting.
Note that a recording will expire and be automatically deleted after a set period of time. The amount of time it's available is set by your admin, but you can change or remove the expiration date of any given recording. For more info, see Record a meeting in Teams.
If your org is still using Microsoft Stream (not OneDrive and SharePoint) to store recordings and you are a meeting owner, you can change permissions and allow people without access to view a meeting recording.
Open the meeting in Stream and select > Update Video Details. Go here for further details.
For channel meetings, the recording will be stored in a Recordings folder in the Files tab for the channel.
The Files tab stores all files in a SharePoint site and document library for the channel. Everyone who is a part of the channel will have permission to edit and view the recording.
All other meetings
For non-channel meetings, the recording will be stored in the Recordings folder in the OneDrive directory of the person who started the recording.
Note: Only the organizer of the meeting and the person who started the recording will be able to edit the recording. But everyone invited to the meeting will be able to view the recording.
Download a meeting recording
Only the person who started the recording and the meeting organizer can download the recording. Go here to learn more about downloading files or folders from OneDrive or SharePoint.
Important: If your org is still using Microsoft Stream to store recordings and you are a meeting owner or recorder, you can download a meeting recording:
Go to the meeting recording in the chat history and select More options > Open in Microsoft Stream.
On the Microsoft Stream portal, select > Download original video.
Add the video to a Teams conversation by selecting Attach beneath the compose box. Or share the recording any other way you choose.
