ARF file extension is a WebEx recording file generated from network-based recordings such as educational conferences. ARF files do not play in usual media players like VLC, mobile phone and windows video/audio players. On the contrary, MP4 files play in all media players as long as the device supports MP4 file formats. At ARFtoMP4, we provide a digital solution to enhance the process of converting ARF file recording to a more supported format, MP4. Here are three methods of changing ARF media files to MP4.

The other two ARF file conversion methods are based on our work, and provide a modern way of converting files with ease.

1- WebEx player does not support multiple file conversion. Therefore, you must be patient with this approach.
2- ARFTOMP4 solutions are designed uniquely to support multi-file conversion.
