How Do I Edit a Webex Recording?

With the built-in recording option (available for the host only) or a third-party recorder, it’s easy to record meetings on Webex whether you are permitted or not. According to the official information, recordings saved either to the cloud or your computer will be stored in MP4 format, which can smoothly play on most applications and can be easily edited with a video editor. The following article introduces two pieces of Webex video editing software and gives step-by-step guides. Just keep reading.

Note: There are three types of files for Webex recordings: MP4, ARF (Network-Based Recordings), and WRF (Local or Standalone Recordings). MP4 can be edited on most editing apps, WRF can only be edited on a Windows PC using Webex Recording Editor, while ARF cannot be edited. Nevertheless, you can convert ARF to MP4, WMV, or SWF and convert WRF to WMV for easier editing on your PC.

Click “Preview playback range” to start playing the recording, then select “Pause” and drag the playback start control to the point you want to save from the recording. Finally, press “Save playback range” to save your changes.
