Using Microsoft Expression Encoder with GoToMeeting v5.4

Using Microsoft Expression Encoder with GoToMeeting v5.4

The information in this post is no longer relevant.  

With the release of GoToMeeting v5.4, some of you have run into issues editing your new recordings in Microsoft Expression Encoder, here is the reason and solution.

Some changes made to the GoToMeeting codec in v5.4, this was done to add compatibility with Windows 8. MS Expression Encoder is having issues with the new codec which is why it cannot play/edit your new recordings.

GoToMeeting will be fixing this issue with the release of v5.5, but until then we have a new codec that you can download and install separately on your PC. If you are not comfortable following these steps, please call GoToMeetings toll free Support and one of the Support Representatives will connect to your PC and install the codec for you.

1. Download the GTM codec from here:

2. Move the codec to your Desktop if it wasn’t saved there automatically.

3. Click Start > Programs > Accessories and then right click Command Prompt and select Run as Administrator

4. In the Command Prompt type: CD \Users\yourname\Desktop (Where it says yourname enter your Windows login name i.e. if you login as Brian enter brian, if you login as Brian.Wilson enter brian.wilson), then hit Enter

5. In the Command Prompt type regsvr32 C:\Users\youname\Desktop\G2MCodec.dll then hit Enter

You should then see the following:


After you’ve successfully registered the new .dll, open Expression Encoder and re-encode the recordings you were having issues with earlier, Expression Encoder should work normally to convert the recordings.

  1. If I am actually running version 5.1 and didn’t know it and downloaded this file and went through the process, would that actually put me in a worse condition than I was previosuly if I was running into problems with encoding/converting?? I have tried about 4-5 different “how to” guides (most from this website) and I am still having trouble 😦 I posted a couple comments on this page today and yesterday: Any help is appreciated greatly!!

  2. Hi Glenn, I’ve been bothering you for a couple of hours. Sorry! This is my last question: what’s the name of the “Follow Blog via Email” plugin / widget you are using here at the right column of your blog?

    Excuse the off-topic, please, but I haven’t found something as simple as that for my .org WordPress website. Best regards.
