Sharing your recordings with
viewers not on your course roster
You may also add viewers who have a Directory ID (Bb login
name) to the
viewer list with the instructions in this
If you want someone without a Directory ID to see your
recording, you may add them
with any email address. Panopto will send that address
an email with a password. Then it will send a second email with
a link to the recording. When they click the recording link the
first time, it will ask them to change the password sent in the
first email. When they wish to view the recording
these viewers will use the Panopto login, this email
address and the new password they just created.
Alternately, you can use the "share" tab in this tool to
remove all access restrictions and send the URL to anyone - even
people not in the list of viewers. NOTE: Everyone who logs into
umd's Panopto server will see this recording in their list of
available recordings so please consider this carefully before
you choose it.
If you have a recording in one course folder on
capture.umd.edu and you want to move it to a different course
folder you can do that quickly.
Get into the Panopto folder
management tool from the "Manage My Recordings"
link on the Panopto recorder under the
"Recording Status" tab OR by logging into
Then go into the settings for that
video (the icon that looks like a wheel in the
column next to the name of the video)
Click the edit button next to the
name of the folder and change it to the folder
If you want the recording to be accessible in both
courses, you can create a copy first and then move just one of
them. You'll find the "copy session" button from the "Manage"
Another option for sharing - From the share tab, you'll
see an email feature. This emails the URL to individual users if
you just add their email addresses (any email address - doesn't
have to be @umd.edu). When you add someone to this user list,
they receive two emails - first a Panopto login to view your
video - navigation and video included - and then a link to your
recording. These users don't use a directory ID to log in, but
use the Panopto login form with the account they're emailed.
You can make a recording public so that anyone you send the URL
to can open the recording.
To capture the URL, open the Overview tab and copy the
You can get to your recordings from the Panopto management tool.
Two ways to get to the management tool:
If you want an mp4, open the management tool. From the list
of all your recordings, check the box to the left of the
recording name and a "Download" button becomes clickable. Click
that to save to a zip file. Share the zip file any way you like.
The Outputs tab will allow you to save a single mp4 file that
you can publish as well. Explore the Panopto Support site for
more about this or email us at
and schedule a time for a short demo of this feature.
