Install Kaltura Capture Within MediaSpace
Kaltura Capture is free recording software available for both Mac and Windows. Though you can find the installer file in either Canvas or MediaSpace, this article provides instructions on how to find it in MediaSpace.
Kaltura Capture is available to all UC San Diego community members with active directory credentials.
Things to keep in mind:
- Disk space usage. When you record using Kaltura Capture, it will keep your recording files on your computer in addition to uploading them to the cloud.
- More reliable on Windows. We've observed less stability with Kaltura Capture on Macs.
- System requirements. see Kaltura's documentation on your computer's system requirements for the software. It works on both Macs and Windows computers.
- Dual screen recordings. If you elect to record your camera and screen, then your recording in Kaltura will be a dual-stream recording, which allows viewers to control the arrangement of the two video streams. Handy!
