Save and Publish

Use the Save and Publish dialog box to specify the name or location of the Windows Media recording. You can save the Windows Media recording on your computer, or if you have the appropriate rights, in a shared network location or a Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 asset library.

  1. Click Start, click All Programs, click Microsoft Lync, and then click Microsoft Lync Recording Manager.

  2. In the Microsoft Lync Recording Manager dialog box, on the Lync Recordings tab, select a meeting, and then click Publish.

  3. In the Save and Publish dialog box, under Recording file name, type a name.

  4. To change the location of the recording, under Save to, do one of the following:

    • Paste a Web address in the text box, such as a SharePoint Server 2010 asset library URL.

    • Click Browse and navigate to the folder where you want to save the video.

  5. If you also want to select the type of content to include or set the recording start and end times, click Options and follow the instructions in the next section.

Note:  If you have trouble uploading the file to SharePoint Server 2010, ask the Microsoft SharePoint administrator to increase both the default maximum upload size (default 50 MB) and the upload timeout setting.

Save and Publish Options

Use the Save and Publish Options dialog box to select the type of content to include in the Windows Media recording (.wmv), the recording start time, and the recording end time. The checkboxes in the Content in video section indicate the content types that were originally included in the Microsoft Lync 2010 session. If a content type is not available, it was not originally included in the Lync 2010 session. By default, all available types are selected, but you can deselect the checkboxes if you don’t want to include a particular content type.

Note:  If you plan to share a Windows Media version of the recording, you should be aware that if certain content in the original Lync 2010 session was very large in size (for example, a large whiteboard, a long instant messaging (IM) session, or dual monitor sharing), the content may be less readable in the finished video. Additionally, any ink messages in the IM portion of the recording are usually truncated because of limited width in the finished video.

  1. Under Content in video, if you do not want to include a particular content type, click the check box to clear it.

  2. Under Time, use Start Time and End Time up and down arrows to select where in the original recording you want the published version to start or end.
