Having a great recording of your web seminars for use in marketing your product is just as important as holding the event itself.  Similarly, customers who use Breeze Meeting in highly regulated industries, such as Life Sciences, Government, or Financial Services, must archive meetings for compliance with industry regulations.  And for everyday users, preserving a record of your meeting is a useful tool that keeps team members on the same page and maintains a historical record of past decisions.

Breeze provides many unique capabilities that combine to create compelling meeting recordings. Rather than producing a monolithic, static recording, Breeze provides a fully interactive, streaming experience that gives users the ability to download shared files and interact with content as if they were in the live meeting.  Breeze automatically creates bite-sized chapters within recordings that keep the content digestible and allow viewers to skip to content that is most relevant to their needs.

This article provides information about the mechanics of Breeze Meeting recordings as well as best practices and strategies for how to take advantage of the unique features that Breeze provides. 


To complete this tutorial you will need to have the following installed:

  • Access to a Macromedia Breeze Meeting Account (Hosted or Licensed)

Breeze Meeting is a powerful web conferencing solution that allows you to record meetings to repurpose meeting content for users who are unable to attend a meeting in person.  Breeze Meeting contains a wealth of features that help users experience your recordings as if they were there in person.  If traditional meeting recordings work like a VHS tape in your VCR then it helps to think about Breeze Meeting recordings as an interactive DVD. You can even skip to specific “chapters” that are of interest.

In this article I first describe how meeting recordings work, followed by a discussion about the advantages of Breeze’s approach to recording meetings.  Once you have an understanding of these basics, I provide a set of best practices that help you create compelling, interactive recordings that keep viewers engaged.  I then discuss some special considerations that you need to keep in mind about audio and bandwidth when recording meetings.  I end with a discussion about the various ways that customers are using Breeze recordings today, and link to a step-by-step process for making a recording publicly viewable.
