How do you turn off ability for students to comment on a video in Studio.

Jump to solution

When I made a video in Studio, I uploaded into an assignment and students were able to make comments throughout the whole video.  I don't want them to comment on certain videos (spelling tests etc..) How do I turn off the commenting?

@chofer has told you how to do it for newly embedded videos.

If you need to remove the comments from an existing embed, you can either remove the video and reinsert it as Chris describes or you can edit the HTML of the page (use the < /> button at the bottom of the editor) and convert the type from embed to bare_embed.

If you view the HTML source for the content, you're looking for "custom_arc_launch_type%3Dembed"

The %3D is the encoded version of =, so this is really custom_arc_launch_type=embed, but is has to be encoded because it's part of an URL.

If you do not want the comments enabled, then change this to "custom_arc_launch_type%3Dbare_embed"

That's the only difference in the two: embed gives the comments and bare_embed gives just the video.

If you are not comfortable editing the HTML, then you will need to remove the video and re-embed it.

Hello there, @shigley ...

When you embed a Studio video into your Canvas course(s), you should have a toggle switch to allow (or not allow) commenting on your video.  This Guide shows how you can do this: How do I embed Canvas Studio media in a course? - Canvas Community.  Scroll about half-way down to the section on "Disable Comments".

I hope this will be of help to you.  Sing out if you have any other questions about this...thanks!
