How to Record a Webinar as an Attendee on Windows 10 for Free

COVID-19 has turned the whole world upside down. Everything has dramatically changed. However, on the other hand, it also promotes the development of digital technology and social media. Online webinars and distance meetings are deployed as alternatives to offline meetings in many countries. In this situation, it’s better to record a webinar for later viewing in case you need. Last time we talked about how to record Webex meeting as a participant. But can you record a webinar? Do you know how to record a webinar you are watching?

Can I Record a Webinar I am Watching? 

Yes, you can. But the case divides on how to record a webinar while watching it. Why do I say so? There are numerous online meeting platforms in the market, from GotoWbinar to Zoom, from Webex to Google Meet, and so on. In general, all of them design an in-built screen recorder to make webinar recording more convenient. However, the situation divides.

If you are the host

You have the default right to record a live webinar and give recording permission to other participants. In general, you need a paid account to record the long-time webinar and save the webinar recordings to the cloud.

If you are not the host

How to record a webinar as a participant? Well, as rule, only the host has the recording right. Therefore, the most direct way is to ask permission from the host. But it may leave you in an awkward position if the host is your boss or other people you’re not familiar with, thus forcing you to choose another way – to install third-party webinar recording software like WorkinTool Vidclipper.
