Recording Google Meet wiithout the Administrator Console Account is easily achieved using OBS software.

OBS Studio (Open Broadcaster Software) is a powerful, free and open-source screen recording and streaming software widely used by content creators and gamers. In addition to live streaming, OBS Studio can also be used to record Google Meet sessions without the need for an admin console account. In this blog post, we will guide you step by step on how to set up OBS Studio to record your Google Meet meetings effortlessly.

Step-by-Step Guide to Recording Google Meet with OBS Studio

Step 1: Download and Install OBS Studio

If OBS Studio is not installed on your computer, you can download it for free from the official website (https://obsproject.com/). Choose the appropriate version for your operating system (Windows, macOS, or Linux) and follow the installation instructions.

Step 2: Configure Audio and Video Settings

Before starting a Google Meet session, you need to configure the audio and video settings in OBS Studio to ensure proper recording. Here’s how to do it:

Launch OBS Studio on your computer.
Click on “Settings” in the lower right corner of the OBS Studio window.
Step 2.1

In the Settings window, go to the “Audio” tab on the left sidebar.
Set the audio settings you want. Make sure that the correct audio input source (microphone) is selected, and that the audio levels are appropriate.
Step 2.2

Next, click on the “Videos” tab on the left sidebar.
Set your preferred video settings, including the base (canvas) resolution and the output (scaled) resolution. For most cases, using the default settings should be sufficient.
Step 2.3

Step 3: Create a New View

In OBS Studio, a scene is a collection of sources (such as your screen, webcam, or images) that will be recorded or streamed together. Let’s create a new view to record your Google Meet session:

Click the “+” icon below the “View” box in the lower-left corner of the OBS Studio window.
Step 3.1

Enter a name for the new scene (for example, “Google Meet Recording”) and click “OK.”
Step 3.2

Step 4: Add a Display Capture Source

Now, we need to add a display capture source to capture your screen, which will include the Google Meet session:

Click the “+” icon below the “Source” box in the lower-center of the OBS Studio window.
Step 4.1

Select “Display Capture” from the dropdown menu.

Step 4.2

In the “Create/Select Source” window, choose the display you want to record (if you have multiple displays) and click “OK”.

Step 4.3

Step 5: Position and Resize the Display Capture

After you’ve added a display capture source, you can change its position and size to focus on the Google Meet window:

Click and drag the corners of the red border around the display capture source to adjust its size.

Position the display capture source so that the Google Meet window is fully visible within the red border.

You can also right-click the Display Capture source and select “Transform” to further adjust the position and size, if necessary.

Step 6: Add an Audio Input Capture Source (Optional)

If you want to include your voice or external audio in the recording (for example, for commentary during a meeting), you can add an audio input capture source:

Click the “+” icon below the “Source” box in the lower-center of the OBS Studio window.

Select “Audio Input Capture” from the dropdown menu.

In the “Create/Select Source” window, select your microphone from the dropdown list and click “OK”.

Step 7 Start Google Meet Recording

Before you start recording, make sure your Google Meet session is set up and ready to go:

Open your web browser and join the Google Meet session you want to record.

Make sure that your camera and microphone are working correctly.

Now, you are ready to start recording:

Go back to OBS Studio and click on the “Start Recording” button in the lower right corner.
Step 7.1

OBS Studio will begin recording your Google Meet session with any audio and video sources you’ve added.

Once the meeting is over, click the “Stop Recording” button to save the video file to your computer.

Step 7.2

Step 8: Review and Edit (Optional)

After the recording is finished, you can review the video in OBS Studio or use video editing software to trim, enhance, or edit the recording as needed.

 

Recording a Google Meet session without an administrator console account is easily achieved with OBS Studio. By following the step-by-step guide given in this blog post, you can easily capture your important meetings, webinars and collaborations. The flexibility and powerful features of OBS Studio make it an excellent choice for recording and streaming a wide variety of content.
