Can I record the meeting even if I am not the host?

Reference: https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/204101699-Recording-without-the-Host

Local Recording without the Host:

By default, only the host can initiate a Local Recording. If another participant would like to record, the host will need to provide permission to that participant during the meeting.

The host will need to join the meeting to give the other participant recording permission, or set the participant up as an alternative host. If a user has scheduling privilege for you, they will automatically join as an alternative host and be able to start the recording.

Cloud Recording without the Host:

If Cloud Recording is enabled on your account, you can follow steps below to record a meeting without the host being present in the meeting:

  1. Enable automatic Cloud Recording for the meeting
  2. Schedule a meeting with the Enable Join before host option selected

When the first participant joins the meeting, the recording will begin automatically without the host in the meeting. This recording will saved to and can be accessed at the host's My Recordings page.

Co-host can also start/stop a recording.
