Record & Playback

Live meeting recording capabilities and free cloud-based storage

OmniJoin™ meeting hosts can easily record their web meetings to the cloud or on their local hard drive. The Record & Playback feature can be very useful for those who could not attend your meeting, for archival purposes (e.g., to document a vendor meeting), or for online training purposes for later playback on demand.

  • It’s Easy – Recording meetings is simple. Just click the “Meeting” tab and you will see the “Record Meeting” tool button. Click the button to see recording options such as recording size and file name.
  • Everything Gets Recorded – Web. VoIP. Video conference. When you record an OmniJoin™ web meeting, everything gets recorded – all VoIP audio, multi-party video, and all items being shared that are visible on the display screen*.
  • Industry Standard Recording Format - The output is an industry standard MP4 file. This format is easy to edit using a variety of editing tools and multimedia suites. Unlike other conferencing solutions, there are no manual conversion steps involved.

Recording Meetings in Standard File Formats

Numerous web conferencing products record one or the other data type, but not all of them; and most hardware-based video conferencing products are only capable of recording the video and one H.239 data sharing channel. OmniJoin™ captures everything it controls in display memory, then runs the data through an encoder that compresses it and creates an output file in one of two industry-standard formats: FLV (Flash) and AVI (Audio Video Interleaved). Many products save their conference data in proprietary formats, which limits playback to those computers with the proprietary player already installed.

Because the recording is in a non-proprietary format, OmniJoin™ users can edit the recording with standard tools such as Adobe Flash Professional/Creative Suite, then distribute it as needed.

For the FLV format, any computer running OmniJoin™ can play the file in the OmniJoin™ Flash Player, which is included in the OmniJoin™ application. FLV is also playable on other media players that support Flash — e.g., Adobe C5, FLV Player, Real Player, and many others. Files recorded using the AVI format are playable on Windows Media Player.

In generating the AVI files, OmniJoin™ uses compression techniques that are highly optimized for this application — multi-party video conferencing with live sharing and web collaboration — thereby producing a smaller file that makes it easier to distribute.

You also have the option of HTML output. This generates an HTML pointer to the FLV file that you may place on a web server. When users click on the link in the HTML page, it invokes the Flash Player plugin and plays the recording in their browser. This feature may be useful in posting video recordings to websites and employee portals.

FREE Cloud-Based Storage

OmniJoin™ web conferencing Pricing Plans include at least 1GB of free cloud-based storage**. Your OmniJoin™ recordings are automatically stored in the cloud. The meeting host has the option of downloading their recordings for local editing and off-line storage, or changing the access rights so they are publicly accessible. This makes the process of conference recording and publicly posting your media files much easier.

*If telephone connections are used for audio, those will not be recorded.

**Cloud storage is not included as part of the OmniJoin™ Private Cloud plan.
