Replacing a Recording of a Meeting

The creator of a meeting, the Chair, and the system administrator can replace a recording with another file. This feature is helpful if a recorded meeting is damaged and you want to replace it with an undamaged copy of the meeting. To ensure that you have an undamaged copy of the recording, you should export the recording to your computer.

You can also replace a recording with an edited version of the recording. Currently, you cannot edit a recorded meeting using IBM® Lotus® Sametime ®. If you want to edit a recorded meeting, ask your system administrator if your company has any tools for editing recorded Lotus Sametime meetings. Your system administrator might have created or bought a tool that allows you to edit a recorded Lotus Sametime meeting.

Tip Before replacing a recording, you might want to export the recording (save it to your computer). When you replace a recording, the original recording is deleted, and you cannot retrieve it.

Note Your version of Lotus Sametime might not allow you to export or replace a recording. See your system administrator for more information.

To replace a recording:

  1. Click on the meeting name in the Meeting Center. (You can find the meeting in the Recorded Meetings view, the Finished view, or the Calendar view.) The meeting details appear.
  2. Click "Replace the Recording." In the Replace Recorded Meeting dialog box, browse to locate the recorded meeting file that you want to use to replace the current recording.
  3. Note The file must have an RAP extension (the extension for a Lotus Sametime recorded meeting file). If you do not use a file with an RAP extension, no one can view the recording.

  4. Click OK. The edited version of the recording replaces the original recording on the Meeting Details page.
