If there are people who are unable to attend a conference or event, you can record it on your computer so that they can watch it later or refer back to what was discussed.
If your site administrator has enabled the capability of local recording for your site, you, as the host or cohost, have the ability to capture meetings on your personal computer.
After using Webex version 42.11, you will have the ability to record sessions as a cohost.
Your recordings include the audio and video of the participants as well as anything else that was shared during the conference.
The MP4 file format is used to save recordings to your computer.
The panels, such as the conversation panel and the participants panel, as well as any files that you share using the Share File feature, are not included in the recordings. You are not given the option to select a recording arrangement.
When you record a conference onto your personal computer, you have the option of saving it to a location of your choosing, or you can save it to the system’s default location.
- Recordings will automatically be saved in the Documents subdirectory within My Computer if you’re using Windows.
When saving recordings, you should always do so in a private folder on your computer. It is not possible to listen back recordings that have been saved to a network file location, so you should avoid saving recordings in that location.
- On a Mac, recordings are saved by default in the Home subdirectory, which can be accessed using the Finder application.
Allow anyone with the presenter role to record (Webex Training)
You are able to let a participant capture the training session by making them the presenter if the administrator of your site has permitted recording in the WRF format for Training (this format is only compatible with Windows). The Recorder icon will display in a participant’s session controls once that participant has been designated as the presenter. You will not be able to begin a new recording on your computer while you are the host until you have made yourself the presenter once more. You still have the option to capture in the cloud. If you have already begun recording on your computer and then decide to make someone else the presenter, the new presenter will be able to begin recording without interrupting the recording you have already begun on your computer.
Record your meeting
- Simply click Record, then pick the choice that corresponds to your computer.
You don’t see a computer as a choice, do you? It is possible to turn off the choice. Get in touch with the administrator of your Webex account.
If you obtain your Webex subscription from your Service Provider, please direct any questions you may have regarding this feature to the customer support staff of your Provider.
You are required to select Computer audio as the audio choice in order to incorporate sound into your recording. A warning will display if you connected to audio using a different choice, but you will still be able to record even if there is no sound.
- Select the Record button.
- (Optional) Simply keep selecting Pause and Resume after clicking the Record button to keep a continuous recording.
It is a good idea to make numerous recordings of events or meetings that last for a significant amount of time because this makes the file size more manageable and facilitates easier viewing.
- To stop the recording you are currently working on, click the Stop button.
