Audio/Visual: How to convert Webex .arf files to .mp4


In Ubuntu 1.04, I did the following:

  1. Downloaded: http://support.webex.com/supportutilities/nbr2mp4.tar
  2. Decompressed the file: tar -xvf nbr2mp4.tar ./
  3. Move the file nbr2mp4.sh to my home directory: mv nbr2mp4.sh ../
  4. cd ../
  5. Changed nbr2mp4.sh to be executable: chmod +x nbr2mp4.sh
  6. Ran the installer: ./nbr2mp4.sh
  7. cd mnbr2_mp4/
  8. Since I am using a 64bit OS and this is a 32bit application I ran: ldd nbr_play

9. Look for “=> not found”.  These are the missing libraries
10. apt-get install libpangox-1.0-0:i386 libpangoxft-1.0-0:i386
11. apt-get install libwxbase3.0-0v5:i386
Once you have installed your missing dependencies you should be able to run the conversion tool
12. ./nbr2mp4 myfile.arf
