Way 2: How to Record Webex Meetings on Windows

OBS, also known as Open Broadcaster Software, offers both recording and streaming in high definition, with no limits on the length of your videos.

OBS Studio is an open-source & free video recording software for Windows, Mac, and even Linux users to take real-time video capturing. It allows users to capture the entire display screen, webcam, and also the microphone.

Apart from the intuitive screencasting features, OBS is equipped with live-streaming capabilities that you won’t find in the default screen recorders of major operating systems.


Step 1. Go to the OBS Project website.

Step 2. Download the correct version of OBS Studio that matches your operating system.

Step 3. Install OBS Studio on your computer.

Step 4. In Windows, go to the taskbar and search for OBS Studio.

Step 5. Select and open the application (32-bit or 64-bit).

Step 6. You will see the OBS Studio interface open up.

Step 7. Under the Controls menu, select “Start Recording” to record your screen.

Step 8. Finally, push “Stop Recording” when you are finished.

Step 9. Then screen recordings will be saved on your hard drive.


To locate your saved recording, you can go to the “Settings” section to see where your files are automatically saved to.



Way 3: How to Record Webex Meetings on iOS/Android

The fastest and easiest way to record webex meetings on phone(iPhone/Android) is to use the built-in recorder of Webex. 


Step 1. You just need to Run Cisco and start a Webex meeting as it normally happens. 

Step 2. Go to the Recorder Settings, set everything as you need.

Step 3. Then click on Record, and the meeting will be started and automatically be saved in WRF format after the meeting is closed.


But this process is just likely a formality. You will have a lot of noise in the recorded video, and you won't get a proper video after the recording. And it becomes tough to use the built-in recorder.
