How Can I Convert Recordings From GoToMeeting?

Have you just found out that your recordings from GoToMeeting aren’t able to open or playback on your PC? Is this the first time you’ve tried to playback a GoToMeeting’s recording? If yes, then it’s probably because of the incompatible codec. Even though the recording is in WMV, the codec used is meant for playing back on the GoToMeeting’s platform.

You can try out either Method 1: Through installation of the GoToMeeting codec or; Method 2: download a converter to solve the conflicting codec issues.

After that, you can easily start a new recording on GoToMeeting with a slight adjustment in the Settings>Preference (convert to a vanilla WMV file, which is without the GoToMeeting codec) so that your future recordings can be playback without that much of a hassle.

If the problem still persists, you can always refer back to the methods mentioned below.

Method 1: Install Codec

In order to open or play your recordings from GoToMeeting on the PC, you will need to install the GoToMeeting codec in advance from HERE. Simply click on the link and then save the file before you run the installation. Just follow the on-screen instructions and after that restart your PC.

You can then try to launch your Windows Media Player or any other players on your PC to play your recordings. Alternatively, select by highlighting your recordings and then right-click on the file to Open With a defaulted program on your PC.

If an error message still prompts up, try out Method 2; by downloading an external converter.

Method 2: Download a Converter

File types and codec that are supported by defaulted programs on the PC can be limited sometimes. However, that boils down to the model or version of your PC. Hence, you might need the help of an external converter in order to convert your recordings from GoToMeeting before you can open it.
