Locate Recording Files

The place that your recorded sessions are saved depends on which type of recording you are using.

  • Online recording: Have your recordings automatically saved online (recommended)
    With this option, your session recordings will be automatically saved to the My Recordings page of your online account. From there you can view, download and share them with attendees. In addition, any registration settings that you set up for the session will be automatically applied to the recording.

  • Local recording: Have your recordings saved locally on your computer
    With this option, your session recordings will be saved as a file on your local hard drive. In order to view or share them with attendees, you will first need to convert them to a different format (using the Recording Manager) and then manually upload them to the My Recordings page of your online account.

The features that are available on your account may vary depending on your subscription plan.
