Adobe's Connect Web conferencing product now has a fee-based MP4 conversion service

The latest version of the Adobe Connect Web conferencing system can automate the conversion of recorded Web meetings to an industry standard format for easier availability on mobile devices.

Connect 9.1 offers a fee-based, server-side feature that automatically converts Web meetings from the Adobe proprietary format into MP4, making them available for streaming to mobile devices.

Web meeting owners who wanted to convert the recordings to MP4 had to do it manually by downloading the files to their desktop computers, doing the conversion and re-uploading them to the Connect server.

"It's a very cumbersome process, so we're offering customers the option to streamline it with this service," said Rocky Mitarai, senior product marketing manager for Adobe Connect.

Having the Web meeting recordings in MP4 format makes them available even to users who don't have the Connect mobile application, according to Adobe. The recordings can also be offered via YouTube and Vimeo channels.

Adobe will charge for the service by converted minutes. It will sell "packs" of 5,000 conversion minutes.

Version 9.1 also adds more than 20 new features to the product and fixes more than 100 bugs, Adobe said. It's available now to customers of the on-premises version of the product and is rolling out to those who subscribe to the product hosted on Adobe's public cloud.
