Multi-stream mobile and embed viewer
Exciting changes are coming to mobile devices and the Panopto embed viewer. Users will get a fully interactive multi-stream experience that allows them to dynamically control which streams are displayed and to cycle through visual layouts. Linked Youtube videos are also now supported in this viewer, along with the full suite of features available in Panopto’s interactive desktop viewer.
Content creators can moderate discussions for both live webcasts and on-demand videos, controlling which discussion comments are visible to the full audience of viewers. The default visibility of a discussion post can be controlled at the site, folder, or video/webcast level.
Improved clips ordering
Users can now drag and drop clips to the desired location from the timeline UI in the editor.
Mobile apps: Background/Reliable Upload
Panopto’s mobile app now allows users to create recordings of unlimited duration and will upload videos while the app is in the background.
For more information about this update, please see the June 2021 Service Update (2021-06-26) Full Release Notes.
Drag and drop videos into subfolders
Added the ability to drag and drop videos to the subfolders in the folder view. This makes it easier for users to organize videos in subfolders.
Delete Streams in the Editor
You can now delete or replace video streams from within the video editor. To learn the key benefits on this new functionality, please visit Panopto's article, How to Delete Streams in the Editor.
Panopto Capture in Embedded Video Selector
From within an LMS (Blackboard), you can now directly record and embed new videos using Panopto Capture, all without leaving the browser. Visit Panopto's page on the Updated Embedded Video Selector Interface to learn more.
Share interesting points in a video
Viewers can easily share a link to a specific place in the video with other viewers, right from the viewer. As long as the other user has permissions to the video, they will be taken to the exact spot in the video that was shared with them. If the other user doesn't have permissions they will see the 'Request Access' page.
Creators can make audio levels consistent throughout their video stream by using the new audio normalization feature in the editor. Please note: This feature is not enabled on Panopto staging servers but is targeted to ship in the Dec 19th release.
Updated Mobile apps
In the next app update, coming out soon, users will be able to upload or record videos more reliably. The new version will support background upload without needing to keep the app active. Users will automatically get this update from Android and iOS app stores when the new version is released.
Panopto’s innovative Smart Chapters feature uses artificial intelligence to automatically generate a table of contents for any video with a screen capture, including recordings from Panopto Capture (web-based recorder) and Zoom.
