There is a much easier way to record and edit Webex presentations than what I previously posted in How to Record, Edit, and Distribute WebEx Meeting Recordings.
Just record the meeting during the Webex session, then play back the Webex recording while recording it with Camtasia Studio 7. Then you can edit it, add a title page, table of contents, etc.
I had tried other ways to do this, including Webex’s recording editor, Captivate, and even Jing. I was not able to capture the audio from my Webex recordings (arf) with Captivate 5, even though I followed the instructions in Captivate’s startup message and ran Captivate as the Administrator, then set the audio input device as Stereo Mix. I tried this with Jing 2.4 and couldn’t get the audio either, even though I set it to Stereo Mix.
I was able to capture the audio and video with Camtasia Studio 7 without a problem.
Here are the steps:
- 1. Record the meeting during the Webex session.2. Download the recording from Webex. (You don’t have to convert the arf file).
- 2. In Windows 7, right click the sound icon on the taskbar and select Recording Devices. Make Stereo Mix the default.Note: If you don’t see Recording Devices, go to Start > Control Panel > Sound and select the Recording tab.
3. Then in Camtasia, select Record System Audio from the Recorded Inputs dialog (this automatically opens when you start a recording).
4. Play back the Webex recording while recording it with Camtasia Studio 7.
5. After you record the Webex recording in Camtasia, you can add markers to create a table of contents. (See http://www.techsmith.com/learn/camtasia/7/use-markers-to-create-toc/).
Camtasia is $299 and well worth it, in my opinion.
