How to Start a GoToMeeting Recording

The process of GoToMeeting recording is not much different from any video recording. You can easily capture your live webinars on Windows or Mac, save the files in a convenient format and share recorded GoToMeetings with colleagues and friends.

In this article, we’ll explore three common ways to start a GoToWebinar recording on PC or Mac. Let’s start with Movavi Screen Recorder – it’s an advanced program with a wide range of settings, high resolution video recording, and a screenshot capture function.

Benefits of Movavi Screen Recorder:

  • Works on both Windows and Mac
  • Offers advanced recording settings: automatic scheduler, specific cursor and keyboard effects, simultaneous recording of separate streams, etc.
  • Lets you take screenshots during the capture and edit them right in the preview window
  • Provides high resolution recordings
  • Includes built-in tips on how to use the program, so it’s easy to start recording without spending time learning functions

Let’s have a look at Movavi Screen Recorder in use.

  • Step 1. Download the Program

    Download Movavi Screen Recorder for WindowsWindows or MacMac. We recommend you to start with the free trial version.

  • Step 2. Adjust the Capture Parameters

    Launch the program and customize the recording settings. Start with the Settings menu – here you’ll find options for scheduling, shortcuts, keystrokes, video and audio formats, etc.

    Then return to the main control panel. What’s your role in the webinar? If you’re a presenter, don’t forget to enable Webcam and Microphone. As an attendee, you just need to turn on System Audio to grab the internal sound and turn off Microphone to block external sound.

  • Step 3. Record the GoToMeeting Session

    Are you ready to start recording? Press the REC button, then sit back and enjoy the meeting.

    We’d like to remind you that you can take screenshots during the recording process without stopping the video. To take a screen capture, click on the Screenshot icon.

  • Step 4. Save the Result in Any Format

    Using Movavi Screen Recorder, you don’t need to convert GoToMeeting recordings. Just choose the most appropriate format for your needs in the preview window.

    When you’re done, click on the Save button. You can also share the file with others by uploading it directly to YouTube or Google Drive, so others can easily download the GoToWebinar recording.

Record a GoToMeeting Session with the Built-In Function

The obvious way to get a GoToMeeting recording is to use the built-in option in the program itself.

Pros:

  • You don’t need to download another app.
  • You can grab audio and video simultaneously.
  • You can record meetings online and save them directly to the cloud without having to spend time uploading.

You may ask – why would I need to install another recording application if GoToMeeting already has this function? The answer is in the program’s limitations.

Cons:

  • Recorded videos are often spoiled by intermittent blank screens.
  • The size of recordings is often too large for your local drive. If you have less than 100MB of free space on your hard disk, the recording will stop automatically.
  • There’s no option to convert video to MP4 or other format. You’ll have to spend time downloading a converter or do an online conversion.

Give the native recording function a try anyway. If it doesn’t work for you, turn to one of the alternatives described here.

    Another Alternative to Record a GoToWebinar

    Last but not least, we’d like to mention one more popular grabber - CamStudio. It’s a nice tool for creating video and audio recording, and you won’t have any problems with the resolution of your recordings or with file size limitations.

    But, as with any software, CamStudio also has some disadvantages:

    • Not compatible with macOS
    • Complex recording settings
    • Unintuitive user interface
    • No editing tools available during recording

    To sum up, these are the three main approaches to how to record GoToMeeting sessions. We recommend you start with the built-in function. If it doesn’t meet your needs, try Movavi Screen Recorder for free.
