  2. Click the Video link and the recording will load in a new tab in the browser.
  3. Right-click on the recording in the new tab and you will have the option to Save Video As.. which will allow you to save whatever was being displayed in the Presentation window during the Conference (uploaded files, Screen sharing and annotations, audio, and webcams) to be saved as an M4V file.
