How to record a webinar
How to start a webinar recording in session
In case you decide to leave automatic recording off, here’s how to do it manually:
Step 1. Start your session
While in session, start the broadcast and share your screen.
Step 2. Set up your recording
GoToWebinar has recording abilities built in so there is no need to download an external screen recorder. Simply click Start Recording (Windows) or Record (Mac) to begin the recording of your screen. If you’re recording locally, you’ll need at least 5 GB of available hard drive space.
Step 3. Stop your recording
When you’re finished, select Stop Recording in the Screen Sharing pane. It is that easy!
Step 4. Edit and share the recording
When you end your webinar, you will be directed to your Video Library. Once the video is done saving, click on the video dropdown to download, edit, or share it.

To pre-record a webinar with GoToWebinar, you can use Recorded (formerly called “Simulated Live”) webinars. First, host a Classic or Webcast webinar and record like you were presenting live (you don’t need to have anyone in attendance). Then schedule a new webinar and select Recorded as the webinar type. Choose the recording you just created, select a date and click Schedule Now. You can even incorporate polls, add handouts and configure Q&A settings to make it feel as vibrant as a live event!.
If you want to record what you share on screen during a GoToWebinar session, simply click Start Recording (Windows) or Record (Mac) at the bottom of the Screen Sharing pane.
If you would like to record your presenters’ webcam , select the “Show webcams in the recordings” box within your GoToWebinar settings. And finally, if you want to capture the video clips that you share live during your event, make sure that the video you upload ahead of time is an MP4 file. Any YouTube video you add will be cut from the recording.
