Recording Audio from Webinar Applications (e.g. Zoom)

Some webinar applications will ask you to download a desktop application to join online meetings. 

This article explains how you can access audio from these applications through your browser, using Glean's Record Screen Audio options.

N.B. If you are a  Windows user you can either follow the instructions below, OR follow the instructions on recording from desktop applications (Windows only)

If you are a Mac or Chromebook user, you can still use Glean to capture audio from these applications, please follow the instructions for the service you are using below:

Join a Zoom Meeting in a browser:

Zoom meetings are often set to launch using a desktop application (the 'Zoom desktop client') as default.

You can get round this by following the steps in https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/201362193-Joining-a-Meeting > Web Browser.

The meeting organiser may have configured the session to default to use the Zoom desktop client. If this is the case:

  • When the prompt appears click 'Cancel':

  • A new option should be available which says: "If you cannot download or run the application, join from your browser."
  • Click join from your browser.

Join a GoToMeeting / GoToWebinar session in a browser:

When you are invited to a GoTo meeting or webinar, you will usually have a unique join link included in the invite.
Clicking the join URL will prompt you to download the GoToMeeting desktop app, or, if the desktop app is already installed on your computer, the session will be launched in the desktop app by default.

To get around this, simply: 
  1. Do not click the join URL. 
  2. Instead, copy the 9 digit Meeting ID (or 'Access Code') which will be in the format 111-222-333.
  3. Go to https://app.gotomeeting.com.
  4. Enter the Meeting ID, then click the arrow key.
