GoToMeeting is a web-based tool for recording online meetings, webinars, and screen shares. Upon completion of the recording process, sessions are saved in GoToMeeting’s proprietary format .GTM .
.GTM media files are not supported by 3Play Media. Sessions in this format must be converted to a format supported by 3Play Media such as .mp4, .mov, or .wmv. Please note that mp4 is the preferred format to convert GTM files to.
Follow the steps below to convert a .GTM file to a format supported by 3Play Media using GoToMeetings Recording Manager.
Step 1 - Open GoToMeeting Recording Manager
Depending on how the GoToMeetings Recording Manager settings are configured the Recording Manager will launch either immediately upon completion of the recording process or will need to be be manually launched.
