How to record a Webinar... as a participant

Posted on 2011-05-02
Last Modified: 2012-06-21
I will be attending webinars, some of which are done in WEBEX, some of which are done in other online venues.  How can I record these so that I can view them at a later time.  Some of the moderators are NOT computer savvy and have NOT been able to successfully use the recording faciliteis provided by the web-based meeting organizations.
Windows XP SP3 is what I have loaded on my PC.

    Camtasia Studio is a very good paid solution.  Easy to use and reasonably priced. If you are looking for something free try,  GNU PL (free)  desktop recording software. Not many options but it will get the job done.

    Dear All:
    I am NOT a moderator.  I am a PARTICIPANT. I am at a remote location.  I cannot use the WEBEX recorder.  That's for the moderator.

    As sbateman mentions - you need to record what occurs at your PC (because this is the only source you have available to capture) and some screen recording software is what you need.  There are various on the market - free and paid solutions.  Camtasia is a good paid solution.  I use CamStudio which is free & produces good quality.  Windows Media Encoder (by Microsoft) is another good alternative.

    With Camtasia, using the supported option as an example, you do not need to be a moderator.  You install camtasia on your computer.  After camtasia is installed join the web conference from that computer and click record.  If the audio is coming through the computer, Camtasia can pick that up to.  If not, you can add the audio by using a device to put that audio on the computer.  I have used:
