Canvas Media Recordings

Canvas Media Recordings

Hello, we have come across a small problem.  Say I have done a media recording of myself, in Canvas.  I did the Media recording, the count down, and it is in my Art 1 class. However, I also want to use this video, that I made in Canvas in my Art 2 class.  I can not find this recording in my files. The only place I can find it is in the class I recorded it in and I have to be using the new RCE to even find that. Since it is my file, my recording, I think I should be able to find it in my files, to be able to use it in other classes.  

This idea has been developed and deployed to Canvas

I was able to share it from one class to another by copying the HTML code for the video, and then pasting it in the new course.

Where did you get the HTML code from? It is a video that was produced in Canvas, (not studio).

If you have the New RCE, click on this button:

This will take you to the HTML editor.   I then looked for the code.  Mine looks like this:

<p><iframe style="width: 400px; height: 225px; display: inline-block;" title="Video player for [Untitled Mon Sep 21 2020 16:50:43 GMT-0400 (Eastern Daylight Time)]" data-media-type="video" src="https://trainingk12.instructure.com/media_objects_iframe/m-eYJhP9oucvvChC2B4NeEfTYsfxzNF65?type=vide..." allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen" allow="fullscreen" data-media-id="m-eYJhP9oucvvChC2B4NeEfTYsfxzNF65"></iframe>&nbsp;</p>

 

In the old RCE, to get to the HTML editor, look for this button:

Thank you.

But I still would love to be able to find it, in my user files.

Hello, I am just trying to get to someone, that might have the ability to fix the fact that you can not find the videos, that are made in Canvas for Course A, and be able to find it in Course B. I think we should be able to find those videos in the user files, without having to find "work" arounds.

Rated 5 stars! My ideal implementation of this idea would be for each media recording to be a selectable item of content in the Course Import Tool.

Agreed!  It would calm our teachers, and me, to know that the video file was stored somewhere, downloadable, and moveable (besides copy/paste). Ideally, wherever the video file was stored would have back-ups, in case the page the video was on got deleted. 

 

Double votes for @RobDitto's idea of the content selector!

I actually have just found that my videos are available in all course with the NEW RCE,  I went to the link icon, and clicked on Course Links.  I was then able to search in Files for my media.  It included ALL of my media -- even from other courses.  I know this because I tried this in a course where I had never made a video.

@jcarpenter1   That's handy!  Thank you.   

Did you find a way to download/save those recording in the new RCE?  I didn't see anything. 

Also, it looks like the recordings are only accessible through the RCE, and not found in the Files, which would be nice.

The new RCE is where you can find a lot of your videos and it is great.  But I have still not been able to find the videos that I recorded in Canvas, from the "video record/upload" and I can not find the videos that are used in my other Canvas Courses. (I looked again today after seeing your message)

@amoore , I just found them by accident.  I was looking to make course links, and found the videos that I had made using the RCE video tool. @Kim_Murray these were the videos I recorded in Canvas, and NOT with Studio.

Newly recorded media and uploaded media via the Upload/Record Media link is stored in the Course, Groups, or User Files folder, respectively. This change ensures users can reuse media uploaded or recorded as media content. Previously, newly recorded and uploaded media could not be repurposed without being exported as part of course content.

Thanks to everyone who contributed to this conversation. Your investment in this idea helped refine a feature that is now part of Canvas!
