  2. Configure the following options on the General tab:



    Default Recording Type

    Select a default recording type from the drop-down list. When you open a meeting, the option selected here is automatically selected by default when you are prompted to select a media option.

    If you change the default media type for a meeting that already has a media option selected, the media option for the existing meeting does not change.


    This option is not available if Media Publishers are not configured for your instance of Minutes.
