How to Record with Kaltura Capture

If you have not yet installed Kaltura Capture on your computer, follow these instructions for installing on a Mac or PC.

Once installed, you can record with Kaltura Capture as follows --

Navigate to My Media or Media Gallery in Canvas, or to MediaSpace

Click "ADD NEW" and choose "Kaltura Capture"

Click "Allow" to allow the browser to launch the app

Kaltura Capture will launch from your computer

Set your recording settings

Here are instructions for setting the recording settings.

Launch Powerpoint on your computer, or launch other media you want to record

Set your screen up the way you want it to be, to begin your recording

Hit the red, round "Record" button on the Kaltura Capture control panel

A short countdown will begin

During the countdown expand Powerpoint or your other media to fill your entire screen

Don't worry if the recording started before you made your media full screen, or if you do not start your narration right when the count down ends. You will have the opportunity to edit the video later.

Click the small horizontal "dash" in the upper right corner of the control panel to hide it

Everything on screen will be visible in the video you record, including the Kaltura Capture control panel. If you don't want to include it, click the dash in the upper-right corner to minimize it.

Now that the recording is in progress and your screen is set up, give your presentation

Advance your slides and speak as you normally would. Everything on your screen is being recorded, including your mouse movements, and any applications or other onscreen objects that you interact with.

Note: Videos that you play on screen will not record well in Kaltura Capture, because the audio will not be recorded and image quality will suffer. We recommend posting additional videos separately from the recordings you make with Kaltura Capture.

Exit the Presentation

Hit escape to exit full screen mode (if you are in PowerPoint).

If you minimized the Kaltura Capture control panel during your recording it will be in your Tray (PC) or dock (Mac). The tray and dock are the list of icons at the bottom of the screen. Look for the Kaltura Capture icon (shown below). Click the icon to access the control panel.

To pause the recording, click the red button with the " in it

To fully stop the recording, click the white square, and click the confirmation that appears

To cancel and discard the recording click the gray "X"

Once finished, you can name and tag your recording

Change the name of your recording to something that is meaningful to you. This will allow you to find the recording in Kaltura My Media later.

The Description and Tags are optional, but can help you categorize your videos to aid in search.

Depending on how you share your videos with others the name and description may be visible to them.

Click save and upload to save your recording to Kaltura My Media

In order to share your video with others or to edit it with the Kaltura Video Editor, you must first upload it. To do that click "Save & Upload".

Note: if you want to save the file locally on your computer, but NOT upload it, click "Save".

It may take a while -- minutes or hours -- for the video to finish uploading and appear in My Media or MediaSpace. If it's not ready, wait several minutes, or longer (if it's a lengthy video) for the upload to complete.
