As WebEx is a popular online platform used for running professional meetings and conferences, so you probably often have a meeting with your colleagues and clients via WebEx. Sometimes you might need to record WebEx meeting in order to backup or share with others, since WebEx provides a built-in WebEx recorder, you can easily record WebEx meetings with audio without third-party software.

However, due to its limitations, some of you might want to find a better way to record WebEx meetings. Go ahead! This guide walks you through the steps to record WebEx meeting with built-in recorder and the best WebEx recorder, TuneFab Screen Recorder.


Part 1. Record WebEx Meeting with Built-in Recorder

As mentioned before, WebEx offers a built-in recorder, so when it comes to record WebEx meeting, you must want to record WebEx meeting with built-in recorder at first. The built-in recorder allows users to record WebEx sessions on computer or in cloud.

How to Record WebEx on Computer?

Step 1: Run a WebEx meeting as usual.

Step 2: If you use WBS32, go to "Meeting" > "Recorder Settings" > "Record on This Computer" to manage WebEx recording settings and then click on "Recorder" icon on the main WebEx meeting screen and choose "Record on this computer".

If  you use WBS33 and later, just click on "Record" icon, select "Record on my computer" option and "Record" button from the recording window.

Get Started on Recording

In order to download recordings, you can sign in and go to "My Webex" > "My Files" > "My Recordings" > "More" > "Download". Referring to playing recordings, host need to select "My Webex" > "My Files" > "My Recordings" > "Playback", while you are not the host, you will receive an email sent by the host, just select the link and paste it to play recordings.

Though it's so easy to record WebEx meetings on computer or in cloud with the built-in recorder, you should note that the recorded files are in WRF format so that a WRF WebEx recording editor is indispensable for playing these recorded files. In order to remove the limitation, you should use a third-party online meeting recorder, TuneFab Screen Recorder.
