How to record a Webex meeting

There’s a built-in Recorder feature in the Webex Meetings application, you can easily start to record a meeting without using third-party meeting recorders.


  • Before you attend a meeting and start to record it, make sure you’ve inserted a webcam so that other attendees see you and Webex can capture your image.
  • Also, if your webcam isn’t equipped with a microphone, you need to plug in a microphone device to your computer.

Now, let’s see how we can take advantage of the Webex recording feature.

Step 1 Launch Webex and attend a meeting

On your Webex desktop app, start a meeting.

Caution: You cannot use the Webex built-in recorder on the web page Webex, download a desktop version if you don’t have one.

Step 2 Set up for recording

Before starting, you can decide to take a local recording or a cloud recording.

Choose Meeting from the menu bar and locate Recorder Settings.

By default, Webex Recorder will save the video on your computer. You may choose Record in Cloud, the video will be exported to the cloud of Webex.
