How To Do a Lync 2013 Gallery View Formatted Video Meeting Recording


Currently Lync 2013 records in active speaker format just like Lync 2010. Currently if you want to do a gallery view format recording you’ll have to be creative. (and a little experimental) Below are my quick steps:

  1. Login to
  2. Set Lync to use “Microphone X”
  3. Have Meeting playback through speakers (not headset) that Microphone X can “hear”
  4. Start Lync Meeting
  5. Set screenr to record from Microphone X and start recording

The resulting 1 minute HD gallery view recording in mp4 format was 2.24MB

1638x720x10fps w/4 Participants for 1minute = 4.08MB


  • Screenr seems limited to 5minutes, but I suspect there are other screen recording tools
  • If you would like Lync to natively be able to record gallery view click here and vote
