How to convert a webex presentation to something I can stream?
Posted on 2008-11-14
I recently ran a Webex webinar, which was recorded in their .wrf format. I know they have a converter that I can change this to .wmv format and post it online. However, the resulting file will be >30MB, and since I don't believe .wmv streams, it's infeasible to have users download this size file before they can start viewing. It was suggested that I get a converter to change the .wmv to a flash presentation. My question is three fold. First, is this the best approach? Second, if yes please recommend a converter. And finally, once the flash file is created, what do I have to do to get it to stream? Is it as straight forward as loading on a webserver and accessing the link to it? Or, do I have to load some software onto the webserver--which could be problematic since we're on a shared server and I don't believe they allow us to run server side applications. (BTW, It's a unix server.)
