I was presenting to a customer the other day and the question came up as to where the content is stored and if I have access to the attachment when recording. When you record using Lync all information is available – audio, participant video, panorama video, IM, and shared content. The recorded content is managed by the Microsoft Lync Recording Manager on your desktop. When you stop recording you will received toast on your screen that the information is available in the manager. If there were attachments uploaded during the session they will be saved as part of the Lync recording.

The content is all available via the Recording Manager.

There are 3 actions you can do with the content you recorded, play within the Recording manager, Browse to the content, or Publish the recording to a windows media play formatted file. The content is found under the Lync recording under PubData/Handout/. Here you can take the handout and post to a website.

The really cool part is the recording and publishing.

and either publish locally or to a Sharepoint 2010 Document Library. I decided to post to a library as a media web part.

I uploaded and configured the media web part and now the presentation is available for streaming from the Sharepoint site. Very Cool!!
