Kaltura: Creating a Video Screen Capture


There may be broken links in this article, the GROK staff has been notified and is working to resolve the issue.

Kaltura's Screen Capture feature allows you to record an image of your screen activities as a video and include an audio narration. You can also insert a video image of yourself through a webcam.

NOTE – this feature requires the JAVA plug-in to be installed and active within your browser. For Download information about JAVA, see: http://java.com/en/download/.


IMPORTANT NOTE: If you have trouble using the Screen Capture program, or your browser does not support JAVA, please use Kaltura Capture Space Lite to record a screen capture, PowerPoint, or webcam.

6. If you have a webcam on your computer, you can also include a video image of yourself. To enable this option, click the Video Menu and select your camera. The video image will be inserted on the lower right of your capture area. The video image will not appear within the frame while you are recording. If you are recording a PowerPoint presentation, you may want to allow extra space on the right side of the frame so that your video image does not cover your presentation slides.
