We are planning on an archival solution wherein we download old recordings on our company's WebEx site that meet a configured retention criteria, and then remove them to clear up some space. In this context, I was wondering if
- there is a possibility of native UI integration with WebEx? One idea we had was that if we could add a plug-in (our code) into our WebEx site, then on the recordings page, apart from displaying the recordings currently hosted by WebEx itself, we could query and display the archived recordings as well, leading to a seamless unified view, irrespective of the entity actually hosting the content. Archived recordings could be provided with download links that take the user to our content store.
- there's an automated way of converting from the ARF file format to MP4? Our content store is capable of providing previews for certain standard file types, and so if we could make this conversion during the archival processing phase, we could provide users with previews. A standalone tool with command line options would be helpful to achieve this.
You cannot modify the native UI, if you need to implement such processes I would suggest you create your own UI using the XML API.
At this time there are no tools available for converting ARF formatted files automatically without interaction.
