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


If you share content during the meeting or event using Share File or Share Whiteboard, the MP4 recording will not be saved in video-centric format.

This feature requires Cisco Webex video platform version 2.0. To find out which version you’re using, see Find Your Cisco 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 Video thumbnails view while sharing content. If you changed the default screen layout for recordings in the past to Content-only view, this is still your default.
