Changes to Webcam Recording in Kaltura

This post is to inform you that the old Webcam Recording Tool in Kaltura will be removed on Monday 26th March 2018. You can still use Kaltura to make webcam recordings using the CaptureSpace Lite desktop recorder.

Why is this change necessary?

Since the introduction of Kaltura’s desktop recorder CaptureSpace Lite, staff and students have been able to make screen, webcam and audio recordings from one simple application.

The Webcam Recording button was left available for ease of access, but this tool started to cause issues for our users as it uses dated Flash technology that is no longer supported by most modern browsers.

To provide a consistent experience for all users, the Webcam Recording tool will be removed. CaptureSpace Lite will be the recommended tool for all your recording needs.

Where can I get advice?

If you want to discuss the implications of these changes, or how to make use of Kaltura for learning and teaching then don’t hesitate to get in touch with any member of the LTT via the IT Service Desk.
