Known issues[Bearbeiten | Quelltext bearbeiten]

You want to upload a Zoom recording to the video portal, but the process is interrupted during the upload?
Check if your video contains subtitles in the metadata. You can do this, for example, with the free VLC Player.


  • Open your video file with VLC Player.


  • Open the "Subtitles" section.
  • The menu item "Subtitle track" should be grayed out.
  • This sample video contains a subtitle track. The video can therefore not be uploaded to the video portal.
    If you record your conference with cloud recording, a subtrack is automatically attached to the metadata of the video. You cannot upload this video to the video portal. The process stops during video processing. Details on the correct recording can be found link here.
