Which web conferencing tool do your company use to conduct an online meeting, GoToMeeting, GoToWebinar, Hangouts or the others? Well, no matter what, record the session and capture meeting highlights are so important.

Because they may also miss some of the key points and need to review the recording. This article will tell you how to record a GoToMeeting webinar as an example.
Part 1. Get a Screen Recorder First to Capture GoToMeeting Session
The advantage of online meetings is that it is easy to record and capture important moments through screen recorder, which is very convenient for recreating conference scenes. Although GoToMeeting has its own recorder, it has some disadvantages. For example, recordings will automatically stop if the hard disk space drops to 100MB and converting your recorded session to Windows format requires 1GB or twice its size. Besides, the format of the recording made by GoToMeeting recorder is G2M, it is not convenient for the people you share with to watch on their own devices if you don't convert it.
Therefore, when I was at an online GoToMeeting session, I always used a screen recorder named VideoSolo Screen Recorder. I have already used this program to record hundreds of online meeting and I am sure it will be helpful for you too. It has the following features.
