Although GoToMeeting has its own recorder, many people seek for a third-party tool to record GoToMeeting session because of limitations of the built-in recorder. The limitations make work not convenient. So, it's better to find an alternative. A useful screen recorder makes your work easier and more efficient. In this article, I will list the limitations and give you an alternative to record GoToMeeting video.

Do the limitations of GoToMeeting recorder effect my recording in work? Read the limitations below to find your answer.


• Automatically stop if the hard disk space drops to 100MB.

• Recorded videos are often spoiled by intermittent blank screens.

• The output format is G2M and you have to use GoToMeeting Recording Manager to convert it to MP4 so as to share with others to watch. What's worse, it requires 1GB or twice its size to convert your recorded session in Windows.
