How to record a Webex meeting with Movavi
Step 1. Download the Webex recorder for free
Download and install the Webex recorder. The process is so quick and easy that it takes no more than 2 minutes.
Step 2. Adjust the capture parameters
Choose the recording settings according to your needs. When you need to capture your own screen, you can enable Keystrokes and add visual effects to your mouse movements. All these settings are available in the Settings menu. Then, choose the recording option.
As a participant in an online conference, you can turn off Webcam and Microphone to exclude unwanted noises and images from the recording. You can also schedule the recording remotely ahead of time, so it will start even if you forget about the meeting.
Step 3. Record the meeting
When you’re ready to grab the screen, press the REC button. The recording starts after three seconds.
To control the capture process, you can use the semi-transparent recording panel – a smaller version of the main panel. Because it’s semi-transparent, it doesn’t distract you and, at the same time, shows you that the recording is happening.
Step 4. Save the recording
After you click Stop, the preview window appears.
Hit the Export button, and you’ll see the save settings. Here you can choose the video format, so you won’t need to convert it to MP4 later. Finish the process by clicking the Save icon.
