GoToMeeting Recording Manager (Mac)

If you record a session on a Mac, you must first convert the recording file to an .MOV file before anyone can view it. Using the GoToMeeting Recording Manager, you can easily convert multiple recordings at once either immediately after you end a session or whenever it's convenient for you.

Note: If you’re a Mac organizer using GoToMeeting v5.2, your recordings will be saved as .MP4 files.

Recording sessions on Macs is only available if you're running Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard) or newer with GoToMeeting 5.2 or higher.

Convert Your Mac Recordings

1. After you end a session on a Mac, the GoToMeeting Recording Manager automatically launches and prompts you to convert your recording (if you haven't changed your default settings). You can choose Not Now or Convert Recording.

2. If you click Not Now, you can launch the Recording Manager later from Preferences - GoToMeeting > Convert Recordings Now. To convert your recording immediately, click Convert Recording to launch the GoToMeeting Recording Manager.

If you have older recordings you need to convert as well, expand the "Recordings You Need To Convert" option to see a list of all your recordings that need to be converted.

3. Choose the recording(s) you need to convert by selecting the check box next to the recording. Then click Convert Recordings.


The conversion process may take some time depending on the size of your recording. If you want to delete a recording without converting it, click the Trash Can iconnext to a recording.

4. After the conversion process is completed, you can share the .MOV file via email, YouTube, Vimeo, etc., and anyone can view it. In the Recording Manager, either click the Magnifying Glass icon next to a converted recording or click Open Recordings Folder to open the location where your converted recordings are stored.

Note: If you’re a Mac organizer using GoToMeeting v5.2, your recordings will be saved as .MP4 files.

Note: GoToWebinar organizers can't currently archive Mac recordings.

By default recordings are stored in /Users/<current user>/Documents/Recordings. To change where recordings are saved, open Preferences - GoToMeeting > Recordings > Choose to browse for a new location.
