Retrieving Meeting Recording - Missing file_type for VTT


#1

I am using the below API call to get a meeting’s recording.

https://zoom.github.io/api/#retrieve-a-meeting-s-all-recordings

We have enabled transcriptions but the recording_files->file_type string is blank for any text data such as VTT, so I am not able to identify which file is the actual VTT, for example:

        }

Please fix this.

Right now it’s the only blank file_type, but in our code we’ve written this as file_type=="" | file_type==“VTT” to make the code resilient to the assumed new value for this field.
