I work for FreeConferenceCall.com and we offer a service that will allow you to record on your own and then broadcast it on a live call. StartMeeting.com is an audio conferencing and online meeting service that offers tons of free features as well as paid. With the toll number that is provided you can record as many recordings as you need, then go to your History and Recordings section to listen, download or share. To broadcast those recordings, use the Broadcaster tool (during a live conference call) and you are all set. I suggest that you sign up and play with it so that you are familiar with the platform. If you need assistance, please contact our Sales or Customer Service departments (number listed below).
To sign up, visit this url (if you want just the free services, make sure to turn off the paid options):
If you have any questions, call us at 800-644-9070 and our Sales or Customer Service reps will be more than happy to help you get started.
Hope this helps!
I have a specific need for which i am looking for an answer.
I googled it but since i do not have much knowledge about these king of things i am not able to draw the conclusion myself.
Please look into my query and suggest me the right thing.
Any help would be highly appreciated.
Here it goes:
I would like to know if I do use a free (or low cost) recording software, if I can record a lecture (approx 40 minutes) well in advance, on my own without anyone on that call. I would then want to hop on a LIVE call, but simply start to play that recording for everyone to listen to who is on the live call (but not have them know I'm doing that, I would welcome everyone within the recorded lecture when I make it). I would then want to say at the end of the recording "okay, great, I see some hands raised, so let me just get everyone un-muted, and we will accept questions". At that point I'd turn off the recording and start to speak live myself.
I want to know if this situation is feasible with Free Conference Call.com, or another type of program, and which would be best for something like this. I will likely only need to do this once every three months or so, but still need it to run smoothly when I do.
I will also want to record interviews with other individuals and play them for an audience (via phone, where they call in to a specific conference bridge #) at a later date and want to see how that's most do-able (streamlined, easy, seamless).
For all of these recorded calls, I will likely be using a cell phone, and assume I just need to be in front of a laptop (same one all the time? with a program installed, or can I be anywhere and just need to log-in somehow to the call?) ---and I can see who is "on", and can "mute" everyone, or take them off mute, and they can press a certain # on their phone to "raise their hands".
I know its long, but it would be a great help.
Thank you for reading and answering.
