What is the difference between cloud and local recordings?

GoToMeeting offers you 2 options for session recordings. You can either have your recordings automatically saved online to your web account or stored locally to your computer. The type of recording available to you depends on what your account admin has enabled.

The type of recording available in your account depends on what your account admin has enabled in the Admin settings.

With cloud recording, the recording is automatically stored online in your web account after the session. There's no need to convert the file or manually upload it – it just appears in your account! From the recording page, you can play, download, and share the recording link.

Note: Another benefit of online recording is that you can include shared webcams in the recording! Local recording does not support webcams in the recording.

With local recording, the recording is saved locally to the organizer's computer. The organizer or co-organizer who starts recording a session will have it saved to their local hard drive as a .G2M file, and you will need to manually convert those sessions using the Recording Manager.
