Updated over a week ago

A presentation can be created from a pre-recorded MP4 media file as your webinar source with synchronized slides. Depending on your webinar license, we suggest a file no larger than 5GB. The suggested video format is 8mbps at 720p.

When creating or copying a webinar, populate the "Create webinar from a pre-recorded video" on your General Settings page. A webinar created using a pre-recorded video and slides can only be scheduled as Pre-Recorded Live or On-Demand.
