How to make a GoToMeeting video recording with Movavi Screen Recorder

Step 1. Download and install the program

First, download the recorder for Windows or Mac. To do so, click the appropriate button for your computer operating system, launch the installation file once the download is complete, and follow through with the installation.

When the installation process is completed successfully, configure the preferred settings. To do so, launch the screen recorder and go to the Settings panel. On the settings window, you'll find different options, including audio and video formatting, scheduling, keystrokes, and shortcuts. Customize each to your liking.

Step 2. Start the recording

Click Start recording and adjust the recording frame as needed. As a presenter, be sure to enable the Microphone and Webcam. As a participant, disable the Microphone to eliminate external sounds and enable the System Audio to capture the internal sound. To record your GoToMeeting session, press the REC button, sit back, and enjoy the meeting.

Step 3. Take screenshots (optional)

If in need of taking screenshots with the video recording in progress, hit the Screenshot icon. While at it, edit the resulting image in the preview window – if need be – all without interpreting the screen recording.

Step 4. Finish your recording

Once the webinar is over, hit Stop. In the preview window, click Export. Select your preferred video format (MP4, AVI, or MOV) in the preview window and hit the Save button. Note, you can make it easy for your workmates and friends to access the recording by uploading it to Google Drive or YouTube.

How to get a recorded GoToMeeting call with a built-in tool

Best for: Recording GoToMeeting sessions without additional software

OS: Mac, Windows, iOS, Android, also available online

Most (if not all) devices have a built-in screen recorder, which you can use to capture video and audio at the same time – all without downloading other software/programs. Note, you're required to have free space on the hard disk (think of 100 MB+) for a successful recording.

How to record GoToMeeting sessions with a built-in tool

  1. Locate the Organizer Control Panel and on the View panel, hit the Recording button. In the Recording window, click the Settings hyperlink.

  2. In the Settings tab, select/disable audio or video recording options as per your preferences. Note, selecting Windows Media Player as the preferred output format calls for large hard disk space to accommodate the recorded file.

  3. Next, select the folder in which you'll save the recording and hit OK. If you skip this step, the local recording will be saved in the Documents folder by default.

  4. To record the webinar, click the Start Recording button. Conversely, hit the Stop Recording button once the GoToMeeting is over and give the program time to format and save the file as per your preferences.
