Check your internet stability by heading to https://ping.canbeuseful.com/en

If the Recording Doesn’t Contain Audio or Video

After a video call, you may notice that your recording doesn’t contain audio. This may be due to your operating system’s preferences. 

Mac Desktop 

Ensure your microphone is on and working properly. In System Preferences > Sound > Output & Input, check the inputs and outputs, as well as the mute buttons.
