Frequently Asked Questions of Recording a Webinar


What is Webinar? Why Record a Live Webinar?

A webinar is an online meeting hosted in real-time. It’s a kind of interactive meeting that connects the meeting host with audiences from anywhere. Users can create conferences online using web conferencing software like GoToWebinar, WebinarJam, and Livestorm, and then invite others to attend the conference. But once the webinar ends, viewers can’t access it anymore. Therefore, many people want to record the webinar for review or later viewing. To achieve this, good webinar recording software is necessary. Here introduces a simple yet powerful meeting recorder – WonderFox HD Video Converter Factory Pro. With it, you can record live webinars on your computer effortlessly.

MP4 is recommended in most cases, but you can still choose AVI/MOV/MKV for different purposes. High Quality is recommended and a frame rate of 30fps is enough in normal conditions.

To record audio during the webinar, you need to check Desktop or Microphone (or both) to enable the audio source.

Click the bottom triangle button to specify a destination for the webinar recording. Finally, press the red REC button to start recording after a five-second countdown.

The window containing the recorded file will pop up on your PC.

Now, you have recorded the webinar and saved the recording to your computer. If you have further demands for editing, go to the "Converter" section of WonderFox HD Video Converter Factory Pro. After importing the recordings, you can cut, rotate, crop, merge screen recordings, add subtitles, watermark and music, enhance video quality, compress video size without quality loss, and do more edits. In addition, the software supports batch mode and hardware acceleration, which helps you save much time and energy for the process.
