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.
  2. In the Global Navigation, Click Account > My Media.

My Media is the 6th item down.

  2. Click the webcam or audio settings to select a different device (if you have multiple) and to toggle the camera/audio capture on/off. 

First item in the recording menu is Camera. Click it to turn off webcam recording or switch devices if you have more than one.

Note: For an audio-only recording, click the menu for Camera, then move the slider left to turn it off. If successful, the icon will be dark gray with a slash through 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.
