I need help converting a webex recording to any other video type. I cannot find a converter that will even recognize the .wrf extension. If anybody knows where I can find a converter I would be greatful.
You can download the WebEx Recording Editor at the link below which will allow you to edit modify and enhance .wrf files and save them as Windows Media Video.
There is an editor for windows at: http://www.meetingcenter.net/record_play.htm
You can download it, install it, then open a wrf file and in the file menu choose export to, you can export to wmv if you have media player 9 or later.
You can convert the WebEx recordings to WMV file format (playable in Windows Media Player) using WebEx Recording Editor Software.
To convert the WebEx recorded file to WMV file format, you need to have the WebEx Recording Editor 2.4 or higher version.
To check if the WebEx Recording Editor 2.4 or higher version is available on your WebEx Web site, please download and install the WebEx Recording Editor, so that you can check the version of the WebEx Recording Editor.
NOTE: You need to have host account on your WebEx site to download WebEx Recording Editor.
Another possibility is not to convert the document, but to put on intranet or internet following the instructions in this document: http://www.dynametric.com/pdf/webextipsandtricks.pdf
Here is a summary of what is in that document (in case it becomes a deadlink)
Setting up a Hyperlink for Automatic Playback
1) Have your web master create a sub directory on the web server for you to post you’re
WebEx recorded files, example: http://www.companyname.com/webex/playback
2) Have your web master create a page that has hyperlinks that point to these WOT/WRF
Note: The hyperlink first goes to WebEx, and the WebEx Player is installed or updated
as needed. Then the WebEx Player launches and opens the file on your web server, and
begins playing the file. The user must have “read” access rights to the WOT/WRF file, or
they will not be able to open it.
3) Test the links to make sure they are working properly before you post them to your production
system or “live” system.
does anyone know how to change the resolution on a webex .wrf file? I Have a file created at 1280 x 800...need to convert down to 1024 x 768 so that others can stream this file without being too large on their screen.
Tried to convert to .wmv using the webex editor, but having issues with audio losing sync with the video.
Regarding coverting Webex recordings (.wrf) to another format:
Try the free Webex Recording Editor at
Scroll to bottom of page and get the standalone editor.
Open the WRI in the editor and then export to WMV.
Grab it now while its still free if you deal with WRI files.
Your posts helped me a lot, but I still have a problem:
the player/recorder provided on the website of webex is in version 2.7
whereas the version of the editor of meetingcenter is 2.4
So I can’t edit the files I recorded with the recorder v2.7...
Do you know where to find the editor v2.7 ?
When I export to WMV, the video is terrible. Does any know what the best settings to select when exporting to WMV to obtain the best possible graphics.
It is great to be able to convert the file, but if I lose the graphics quality, it ruins the whole point.
