Overview

The Kaltura Capture desktop recorder enables easy video creation on your desktop computer with a fairly simple interface. It requires only one click to record, without complex setup or a lengthy learning curve. Kaltura Capture is supported on both Mac and Windows PC.


You can record:

  • two camera inputs at once*
  • one/two screens*
  • a camera and a screen
  • audio only

*This will depend if you have multiple monitors or cameras setup. 


Videos recorded with Kaltura Capture can be uploaded directly into Moodle or media.kpu.ca.


Note: Kaltura Capture must be opened from your web browser to successfully upload directly because that's how it knows to upload to your My Media post recording.)
