What is an .ARF file?

.ARF is WebEx Advanced Recording File

An ARF file contains a recording of an online meeting downloaded from WebEx. It is recorded using Network-Based Recording (NBR) and stores the video data, a table of contents, an attendee list, and other information on separate panels.

ARF recordings can be converted to Windows Media (.WMV) or Flash (.SWF) files using the free WebEx ARF Player.

NOTE: ARF files are WebEx recordings downloaded by the user, while .WRF files are WebEx sessions recorded directly by the user.
