Kaltura – Express Capture Recorder

Use Express Capture to record short videos with your webcam and microphone directly from your browser without the need to install any software. This is a great alternative for devices that do not support Kaltura Capture or for those wanting to quickly record a short video of themselves.

Note: Not all browsers support capturing your webcam and microphone. For the best experience, it is recommended you use the latest version of Google Chrome.

To get started, access My Media for your account:

  1. Log in to canvas.unm.edu.

Note: If you are accessing Kaltura for the first time inside of Canvas, you may be asked to Authorize the Kaltura Tools in your account.


  1. Your My Media repository will load.
  2. Click Add New > Express Capture.


  1. If this is your first time launching this tool, be sure to allow your browser to access your webcam and microphone.
  2. Click the settings gear to choose a different webcam or microphone.

Note: For an audio only recording, click the toggle next to the selected camera to remove it.


  1. Click the record button to start your recording.
  2. When finished, click the stop button.

Your recording preview should start playing. If you need to re-record and/or select a different source, click Record Again and return to step 6 above.
