Using Lync Recording Player

Microsoft Lync 2010 Recording Player communications software provides a rich viewing experience for the presenter who created the recording. With Lync Recording Player, you can access the audio, video, instant messaging (IM) conversations, application sharing, Microsoft PowerPoint presentations, whiteboard, and polling portions of the Microsoft Lync Online recording just as they were experienced during the Microsoft Lync Online meeting or conversation. You can also hide any of these features so that you can focus on other parts of the Lync Online recording. With indexing, you can listen to a particular speaker or view specific content, and you can also access a list of attendees and download attachments.
