This feature is available for video-centric network-based MP4 recordings that are recorded in the cloud.


If you shared a video file using Share File during the meeting or event, the MP4 recording will not be saved in video-centric format.

This feature requires Webex video platform version 2.0. To find out which version you’re using, see Find your Webex Meetings version number. This feature isn't available for meetings and events that are recorded locally on the host's computer.

When you change the default screen layout, the new default setting applies to the recordings you make going forward. It does not change the layout of existing recordings.

By default, WBS40.9 and later sites automatically use Grid view while not sharing content, and Stage while sharing content, unless your site administrator set the defaults to something else. If you set your preferred recording layout to Focused content in the past, this is still your default both when sharing and not sharing content.

Screen layout options when not sharing content

WEB_recording-pref_no-shared-content-layouts

Grid view shows the active speaker and up to 24 other participants when no one is sharing content.

Stage view shows the active speaker in the main part of the screen when no one is sharing content. Video thumbnails of the active speaker and up to 4 other participants show at the top of the screen. If the host or cohost syncs their stage and adds participants to it, only the first participant appears.

Focus view shows video of the active speaker in the main part of the screen when no one is sharing content. If the host or cohost syncs their stage and adds participants to it, only the first participant appears.

Blank view shows a blank screen when no content is shared.
