Possible Solutions to Play WebEx Recording on iPhone
"Currently, iOS does not allow me to watch WebEx recorded meetings on my iPhone. When I try to load the recording it says WebEx recording playback is not yet supported on your mobile device.
Any suggestions for a workaround? I’m not the most technologically advanced, but is there anything like a PC emulator or an APP that I could use to watch WebEx recorded meetings on my IPhone? (WebEx IOS app does not let me watch recordings either).
I need to watch a recorded meeting each week on my commute and I’m getting sick of carrying my laptop around to listen! Thanks!"
