Rich Media Playback

Panopto recordings played back through a web browser on your laptop a rich media viewer that includes a number of advanced features that leverage the power of search. For an overview of the Panopto viewer, see https://support.panopto.com/s/article/Navigate-the-Viewer. Here are some additional tips about viewing Panopto recordings:

  • Your instructor or event organizer will provide you with the URLs to your recordings.
  • If Panopto prompts you to log in, choose NetID from the drop down menu and enter your NetID and password.
  • You can enter time based text notes (aka bookmarks) as you watch the recording and then search those notes. For more information on taking notes, see https://support.panopto.com/s/article/taking-notes-1
  • The presenter may decide to make their recording available via audio podcast or video vodcast through Apple Podcasts or via RSS feeds. Contact your presenter (instructor) for more information as to this availability.

Podcasts (RSS)/ Mobile Playback

In addition to creating Rich Media versions of recordings, Panopto also has the ability to automatically generate video and audio podcasts  that can be accessed either via individual links, or via RSS feeds you can import into Apple Podcasts or other media players that handle RSS. Many recordings created at Duke in Panopto automatically have podcasts created in addition to Rich Media. If you have questions about whether your recordings are configured to create podcasts, or if you have questions about how you can access your Panopto podcasts, contact your Site Administrator.
