How do I install Kaltura Capture on a Mac?

NOTE: Kaltura Capture software versions that start with "3._" are outdated. If you have a version that starts with "3._", we recommend that you uninstall it, and re-install a current version.  Once you have the current version installed, it will auto-update in the future. Click here for installation instructions for Mac or PC.

NOTE: Users of Macs running MacOS 10.15 Catalina may get an error message which says: "KalturaCapture can't be opened because Apple cannot check it for malicious software."

If you get this error message, you can launch Kaltura Capture with this workaround:

  • On your Mac go to the Applications folder, right click on the Kaltura Capture application icon and click "Open".
  • A button will appear on the pop-up asking if you want to run the application anyway. Click this.
  • Once you have launched the application this way, the error message will no longer show.

Kaltura Capture can be accessed through either Canvas or MediaSpace. In Canvas you access Kaltura Capture with the "My Media" tool in the white left-hand menu of any Canvas course site.  In MediaSpace you access Kaltura Capture in the "+ Add New" menu.  During your first use, the app will be installed locally on your computer. Installation instructions for Mac are below.

In My Media in Canvas, or in MediaSpace, click on "+ Add New" and choose "Kaltura Capture"

Click on Download for Mac

The installation app will be added to your downloads folder.

Locate the installation app and double-click on it

The installation app is called KalturaCapture_#.dmg. (Note: the numbers to the right of the installation app will be different from image shown here).

Drag the Kaltura Capture logo onto the Applications folder to install it

When installation is complete, return to Canvas or MediaSpace and click "+ Add New" and choose "Kaltura Capture"

Choose "Open KalturaCapture" to Launch the App

This step is needed to connect the Kaltura Capture app you just downloaded to your Tufts Kaltura account.

NOTE: Videos you capture will be uploaded to the Kaltura servers (i.e Kaltura's "cloud") as part of the capture process. Your videos will then be accessible in both Canvas and MediaSpace regardless of which platform you are currently using, and which computer you are on.
