Tips for Recording

Your Episode

Zencastr How To:
At your scheduled recording time click on the Zencastr link. No need to sign up for anything. This will bring you to the webpage where we will record the episode. Click on the settings icon in the top right of the page that looks like a gear. Here you can make sure that it is detecting the microphone (input) and headphones (output) that you prefer. Once everyone is on the webpage we will be able to hear each other and hit record when we’re all ready! More tips below!

 

Zencastr Tips:

Top 5 Dont's:

- When you stop recording, don't close your recording window until your file has been fully uploaded and you see the message on your screen.

- Don't run Zencastr through an incognito window or in private browsing mode.
