Recording a Meeting on the Server
When you record a meeting on the server, the recording is automatically copied to your My Recordings page after you stop the recording. It may also be automatically copied to a recordings page for your service center.
If your site administrator has turned on the option to record all meetings with the network-based recorder, all the meetings that are hosted at your site are recorded automatically, and only the site administrator can manage and delete recordings from the network; you cannot delete them yourself.
The WebEx network-based recorder can record your meeting and store it on the WebEx network. The standard format for all Meeting Center recordings is ARF, but MP4 may also be available on WBS32 sites. Contact your site administrator about switching to MP4 format.

Record a Meeting with Other Teleconferences
You can record a meeting with another teleconference service; however, if you use another service, make sure that it is connected to the recording service. If the other teleconference service is not correctly connected to the recording service, your recording will not contain audio.
For best results, use WebEx Audio when recording meetings. If you specify another teleconference service for your meeting, the audio connection and quality depends on that other teleconference service and is outside the control of the WebEx meeting service.

Tips for Improving Recording Quality
The Network-Based Recorder captures video at 2.5 frames per second to create high-quality recordings while keeping the size of recording files relatively small. Use the techniques in this section to further improve recording quality.
Improving Video Quality
When capturing mouse movements, move your mouse slowly at first, and then gradually move it faster.
Before you select a button or choose a menu item, briefly pause your mouse over the object. This allows the recorder to capture the mouse movement before you select the object.
If you plan to record complex or lengthy actions, script the sequence before you start recording to minimize mistakes.
Set your monitor's display resolution to 1024 by 768 pixels before recording.
Improving Audio Quality
If the audio quality is poor, consider upgrading your computer sound card, microphone, or speakers.
Set your microphone volume to the highest level possible that does not cause distortion.
Use a phone headset for recording audio. Headsets typically provide better quality than phone handsets or speakerphones.
Speak clearly about six inches (15 cm) away from your microphone.
To avoid unwanted background noise, record in a quiet location. Avoid moving objects that create noise, such as papers and books.
