I have the play URL from a webinar recording, which API call can give me the meeting ID?

I have the play URL from a recording in our account. But I do not know the meeting ID. Is there a way to find it?

I have already downloaded all recordings and compared the play URLs - but for he recording where I know it should match, the play URL is now different.


This redirects to the following URL, but again the meeting ID is obfuscated:


Which App Type (OAuth / Chatbot / JWT / Webhook)?

Hey @jahrralf,

Thank you for reaching out to the Zoom Developer Forum. Unfortunately, there isn’t a way to obtain the meeting ID based on the recording URL. From here, the best option might be to compare the video content at that URL with the other videos that you’ve downloaded.

Let me know if you have any questions.


Hi @MaxM, thank you for your response. I’ll consider this but before implementing a web scraper to download the original video from the play URL which we have I’ll first try some other hacks…

Gad Max was able to help clarify. :slight_smile:
