This article is for students, faculty, and staff seeking information regarding Webex's Record feature and accessing their recorded Webex meetings. Users can share their recording with a public link, or restrict their link to UConn members. Users also have the option to download a mp4 file of their recording. 

If you recorded your meeting in a classroom, reach out to dl@uconn.edu to receive a link to download or share.
Example: You recorded a meeting in Rowe 320, as opposed to a meeting you hosted from your Personal Room.

There are new Recording options, please view this guide to learn about them: Webex Recording Options

Recording Locations

  1. Record to Cloud - recommended option
    1. Unlimited Cloud storage
    2. A transcript will be automatically generated. Learn about Webex Transcripts.
    3. Recording is online and ready to be shared.
    4. If you loose power or drop out of the call, the recording will continue.
    5. Recording can be downloaded as an mp4 file in the original content-participant layout.
    6. Content and Participant videos remain separate. You may switch between viewing content and presenter, or just the presenter. Note: If you download the recording, the .mp4 file on your hard drive will not have this feature.
    7. This recording location will give you the best possible recording quality because the recording happens at the bridge (Webex server), rather than what arrives at your computer. 
  2. Record to local storage - not reccomended
    1. Uses space on your computer's hard drive
    2. A .mp4 file will be saved to your Documents folder, unless you choose another folder after clicking the Record button.
    3. Content and Participants' cameras will be in the original content-participant layout.
    4. Your microphone will always be unmuted in the recording (microphone mute will work during the meeting).
    5. Recording is offline and ready to be edited by a third-party video editor.
    6. Recording will have to be uploaded in order to share (Kaltura, YouTube, Facebook or other).

Set Scheduled Meetings to Record Automatically

You have the option of setting Scheduled Meetings to record as soon as they begin. This will remove the worry of forgetting to start the recording and missing important information. You may also trim the recording if confidential contents are shared before or after you would have normally started/ended the recording; this may be done by downloading the video file and uploading it to Kaltura to be edited. 

If your Meeting is set to automatically record, you may still pause, stop, and restart the recording as you desire. Each recording will be a separate file in your My Recordings list.
