How to Record a Meeting
Webex meetings can be recorded.
In order to comply with Illinois law, hosts that intend to record a WebEx meeting must state that intention in both the meeting invite (e.g. Exchange invite) and at the start of the meeting before they turn on recording.
If you are the host, you can record a meeting from the meeting room window by clicking on the Record icon or by using the Recorder icon.
The recording panel will display in the bottom right hand corner. You can pause and stop the recording at any time. Use pause unless you want to stop the recording. Stopping and starting again will create multiple recordings.
At the end of the meeting the recording is saved as a file. The recording will be available in your WebEx portal, under My Recorded Meetings from the Meeting Center tab. It can take up to 1 hour for the recording to be available. Within the recording tab you have the option to play, save or delete your recorded meeting.
The system records meetings as .WRF or .ARF files. You can convert .WRF files to .WMV, or .ARF files to .MP4 using the appropriate Cisco software available here: https://www.webex.com/play-webex-recording.html
Note: If you receive an error when opening a file in the WebEx recording player and are prompted to log in, enter uichicago.webex.com for the site URL and any text for username/password, and it will open a separate window to let you log in via single sign-on.
