The @uppy/zoom plugin lets users import cloud video recordings from their Zoom account. Note that only licensed Zoom accounts can store their recordings in the cloud, so this functionality will only be available to users with a paid Zoom account.


Try out the live example or take it for a spin in StackBlitz.

When should I use this?

When you want to let users import cloud video recordings from their Zoom account.

A Companion instance is required for the Zoom plugin to work. Companion handles authentication with Zoom, downloads the files, and uploads them to the destination. This saves the user bandwidth, especially helpful if they are on a mobile connection.

You can self-host Companion or get a hosted version with any Transloadit plan.

npm install @uppy/zoom


Using Zoom requires setup in both Uppy and Companion.

Use in Uppy

import Uppy from '@uppy/core';
import Dashboard from '@uppy/dashboard';
import Zoom from '@uppy/zoom';

import '@uppy/core/dist/style.min.css';
import '@uppy/dashboard/dist/style.min.css';

new Uppy()
.use(Dashboard, { inline: true, target: '#dashboard' })
.use(Zoom, { companionUrl: '' });

Use in Companion
