Record Skype for Business (Lync) Meeting user guide.
Recently I noticed users are not correctly recording their Skype / Lync meetings due to that recording shows in pending state but never get complete. Many time user start recording however forget stop before closing Skype / Lync Meeting.
So writing user guide to help user to record their Skype / Lync meeting.
Join Skype/Lync meeting which you want to record. Follow the below steps.
If the recording option is dimmed, your audio might not be connected. Click the mic/phone icon to connect audio, then try again.
Refer below Image.
Step2: Use the controls at the bottom of the meeting to pause, resume, or stop the recording.
You can see who else recording, point to the red recording button is.
Step3: When you’re done, click Stop Recording.
Skype for Business (Lync) automatically saves the recording in MP4 format that plays in Windows Media Player. You can exit the meeting while the recording is being processed.
a. If your meeting recording status shows pending status then, you can mouse over the pending status, the tile message could say "Pending was paused to save power, plug in to continue". Mean you are on a laptop and that need to plug in to the electricity.
b. Most recording mp4s are available within a few minutes after the recording is stopped.
c. ‘Immediate publishing’ is paused while the laptop is on battery power. This is to converse battery resources during the meeting because the capture and publishing of the recording material is CPU-intensive.
Recording will take few minutes to get ready for share or play.
When your recording has been processed, you can access it to play or send to others. Skype for Business (Lync) displays a message when the recording is ready. You can click the alert to open Recording Manager, or if you miss that, click Tools on the Skype for Business (Lync) main window, then Recording Manager.
Recording found on path: C:\Users\
In the Recording Manager window:
a. Click your recording to highlight it, then click Play on the right side of the window.
b. You can also rename or delete your recording here.
c. To share your recording with others, click Browse to locate it, then copy the file to post on a shared location, such as OneDrive or an internal SharePoint site.
If you cannot post the recording, check to make sure you have enough space on the page.
Recordings are saved in the Videos/Skype for Business (Lync) Recordings folder on your computer.
