Panopto: How To Record A Video
1. Launching Capture
2. Panopto Capture launches in a new browser tab.
2. Select a Microphone
2. Each microphone connected to your computer will appear. Select the desired microphone, and a checkmark will appear over it. Note: Test your microphone by speaking at a regular volume. The audio bar to the left of the microphone name should show green feedback as you speak. If yellow or red feedback appears, the video's audio may be distorted. If no feedback appears, the microphone is not picking up audio.
3. Select Camera Sources
Note: You may be prompted by your browser to give Panopto access to your camera(s). If you accidentally block a device, please refer to our document How to Unblock a Device on a Browser for assistance.
2. Your connected cameras will appear and show a preview. Select the desired camera(s)
and a checkmark will appear over the preview. Note: The first camera selected, automatically
or manually, will be used as the presenter (primary) video source. Additional cameras
will appear with the option to either switch to them for the recording, or to add
them in as a secondary video source.
4. Capturing Screens and Applications
Screen capture: select Your Entire Screen. Then, select the screen to record and click Share. Optionally, select Share Audio to add the audio from your computer to the recording. This is ideal for when you are recording a video call or any application that has sound.
3. Application capture: select the Application Window tab to record everything that happens in one application window only. Select the application and then click Share. Please note: After starting the recording, Panopto will record PowerPoint slides as a video stream when a presentation is put into slideshow mode. If you are a Firefox user, please see How to Record PowerPoint with Firefox and Capture.
4. Browser capture: Select the Tab option, shown here in Chrome, to record everything that happens in one browser tab.
Select the tab you want to record and click Share. Optionally, select Share audio to add the audio from the tab to the recording.
5. Firefox users: a permissions pop-up window will appear. To learn how to capture PowerPoint using Firefox, please visit How to Record PowerPoint with Firefox and Capture.
6. Select the drop-down menu Select Window or Screen to pick the window, application, or screen you want to share. Note: To display a specific browser tab, you will need to make sure that the tab is open in a separate browser window in order for it to appear as an option. To update the list of windows or screens that appear, refresh Firefox. Firefox does not allow for audio capture from windows or screens.
7. After choosing one screen or application source, you may add additional sources by selecting the monitor icon again.
5. Recording the Video
2. To stop recording, select the red square button at the bottom center of Panopto Capture. The video will immediately begin to upload. Do not close the Panopto Capture browser tab until the upload is complete.
6. Video Upload and Processing
2. On the right side of the top toolbar, you can select Redo if you are not happy with the video you have produced and want to return to Panopto Capture to re-record or select Record New to film another video using Capture.
3. In the video details box, you can edit the video’s name, which automatically uses the date and time the video was recorded as a placeholder, change the video’s folder location, add tags to the video, enter the video’s description, and open the video in the Panopto editor by selecting Edit or view it in the Panopto viewer by selecting View.
4. In the text box underneath Share this video, you can add names, group names, usernames, or email addresses of the people with whom you would like to share your video. Once you are done, select Send.
