Upload Media File Question

Jump to solution

When you use the Record/Upload Media button and record a video directly to Canvas on the Webcam, I have a few questions:

1. Is it saved anywhere else within Canvas?

2. What type of file is it saved as? (MP4, etc?)

Hi Emily,

The media files you record or upload are saved and stored in a secure media server. They are currently not accessible from anywhere except the original location in Canvas where you created and saved it from. Generally they are stored as MP4/MP3 for Video/Audio respectively.

Hi Emily, 

I just saw another post that describes being able to "Save the video as" with a right click while you are watching it. Found here: https://community.canvaslms.com/thread/35743-download-media-recordings 

Then it downloads to your computer as an MP4.
