Once the session is over and the recording is done. you can choose to convert the file from the extras menu in the TeamViewer main screen. but this option is available in the TeamViewer Windows version only. The file conversion is done by choosing one of the preinstalled “encoder” embedded within your Windows OS.

In the menu of the main TeamViewer window, click Extras > Play or convert recorded session:


Choose the desired file you want to convert.

and this is done. In my case, I have converted the file into AVI format. And it runs smoothly.

Minimize file size

In case you require smaller video sizes, you might want to install an additional encoder. A list of video codecs such as the “ffdshow” can be found under http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Video_codec.

After installation, select the desired codec from the Codec dropdown in the convert dialogue.
