How to watch a WebEx recorded meeting or event

You can watch recordings of WebEx meetings and events, including webinars, for free—on demand, anytime. There are two ways to watch.

From a URL or hyperlink

Most recorded WebEx sessions are accessed by a clicking a specific URL (a web address), either sent to you via email or on a website. To watch, you don\'t need the WebEx Player at all – just click the link or copy and paste it into your web browser. The recording will play right in your browser.

Note: Please note that a WebEx recording is available to the meeting host and WebEx sends out an email when the recording is available for access. The recording is usually available with in a day or two of the meeting. The host can then forward the email to others as needed.
