Record a meeting - Live Meeting 2007

Meeting organizers and presenters can enable recording for their meetings and allow you to save the recording to your Live Meeting service conference center or your computer. By default, a recorded presentation includes the slides shown at the meeting and content added during the meeting, such as questions and edited text slides. You can also choose to record the audio, video, and panoramic video. Meeting recordings are saved in the Windows Media Player format (.wma) and are stored on your Live Meeting conference center or on you computer.

Recordings are especially useful for people who cannot attend the meeting and might want to view it at a more convenient time. If recording is enabled for a meeting, you can begin recording at any time.

Before recording your meeting, choose whether you want to save your recording to your computer or your Live Meeting conference center (To Service) and what you want to record.

Important: You can only save a recording on your conference center (To Service) if you have a Live Meeting service account.
