Record Video with Kaltura Capture

Kaltura Capture is a desktop recording application that allows you to record video content via your computer.  You can combine multiple source inputs, including audio, webcam, and screen recording.

In order to record audio, you will need a microphone (built into a laptop or an external USB mic).  If you want to record video of yourself or of a demonstration, you will need a webcam.

1. Launch Kaltura Capture

Launch Kaltura Capture through your web browser by navigating to Kent's video page > Add New > Kaltura Capture (must be logged into the website) or by double-clicking the Kaltura Capture desktop icon.  The first time you launch Kaltura Capture, you must launch it from Kent's video page so that it can link up to your account.

Note: When launching Kaltura Capture through Kent's video page, your web browser will pop up a dialog box asking you to confirm that you want to launch the application.  These messages will vary by browser and may look like the screenshot below.
