Part 1. Why My Zoom Recording Has No Sound?

Before seeing how to fix the Zoom recording audio not working issue, it is essential but a little difficult to identify the reasons behind the no sound on Zoom recording issue. However, in most cases, the Zoom screen recording no audio issue due to:

1. The mic was muted in the Zoom app

When you cannot find your voice on the Zoom recording, it happens most of the time since users leave their microphone on mute. As a result, users cannot hear their voice in the recorded files later, leading them to believe that there is a major problem with Zoom.

2. The Zoom app has the wrong microphone selected

Sometimes users may choose to use the headphones for their WORK-FROM-HOME meetings to reduce the background noise. Then you need to select the correct microphone device that you are using. If not, or if you choose the wrong microphone device, then you will find there is no audio on Zoom recording.

3. The mic is occupied by another app

When you choose the correct microphone device and the mic hasn’t been muted, there are still other causes for the Zoom recording no sound issue. One could be that several different apps running in the background are using the mic. Then you may fail to record Zoom with audio.

4. Your mic may be defective

If you’re utilizing an external microphone device, it may no longer work. You can connect your microphone to another device and use any program to record your voice for a test. If you still cannot hear your voice in the recording, it may be time for a new microphone device.

5. The recorded files are not compatible with the video player you’re using

If everything is OK but you cannot hear the sound of the Zoom recordings. Then it might be that the media player you’re using is not compatible with the recording format. Some video players always have difficulty playing certain file types. So this can also lead to the Zoom screen recording no audio issue.
