As the host or cohost of a meeting with a paid Webex account, you can record meetings in the cloud. Your cloud recordings include the participant audio, video, and anything that's shared during the meeting. If you're attending a meeting, you can't record the meeting yourself. Ask the host to record and share the recording with you.


If you start a meeting by phone, you can't record it.

If you are the cohost, you can't start recording a meeting if the host is in the meeting.

To record a Webex Training session, see Recording a Webex Training Session.

Recording Format

Recordings in the cloud save in MP4 format.

Recording Location

When the recording is ready, it saves to your Webex site. The meeting host can access the recording and share them with the cohost or anyone else that needs it. The host also receives an email with all the details to share and play the recording.

If your meeting is associated with a space, the recording link automatically appears in the space where the meeting took place. Everyone in the space is treated as the host and can access the recording.


Depending on file size and bandwidth, it can take up to 24 hours to receive the recording.

Recording Settings

You can select the screen layout for your recordings so they fit the format and content of your meeting or event. You also have the option to record a transcript of what was said during the meeting.

If your meeting is associated with a space, you can't change the settings.
