how do you save a video to canvas
Savannah, Is this a video you created in Canvas or one you created outside of Canvas and are trying to upload to Canvas?
Howdy, I'm not sure if Savannah is experiencing the same problem as I am. Some students are unable to save videos to Canvas. They have video assignments, open those and do via 'Record Video', but for some reason, they cannot save them. They can change file names, pretty much it. These students experience problems at home as well as at school. Could be a wifi issue but why is it such a huge barrier to completing work when it refuses to simply save and turn in?
The alternative to this issue is to have them record on their phones, save to Drive and then upload to the Canvas assignment. Not what I want as I have a rubric for the video work.
I use a Chromebook. After making sure that Canvas had access to my webcam and internal mic, I recorded a video in Canvas. However, the Save button did nothing. My workaround was to right click in the frame of the recorded video and save the video file to my drive. Then I uploaded it to (within) Canvas and submitted the assignment. Seemed to work well. Cheers!
Good evening, Savannah Parks...

I have had teachers report that students in their class are encountering the same issue in which they are using the media recorder within Canvas to make a video recording, however when they click save, nothing happens. It is frustrating to both the students and the teachers that they are losing work due to the tool not working.
I am going to share with the teachers some of the potential work arounds, but has anyone identified ways to avoid the issue from occurring?
We are noticing the same thing in our district. It seems like it was an issue last winter than is back around now. We did not have any issues with this earlier this fall.
I'm continuing to have this issue. I can click the save button, but nothing happens and my recorded video does not embed.
We've had a few reports of this. However in our testing, we found that after clicking the save button, the save/upload process cant take as much time as the length of the video, or more, before it completes. I tested with a ten minute video (of mostly blank wall and not a lot of audio) and it took about 8 minutes from the time I clicked save to finish processing, with no indication that it was "Saving...". I'd imagine that could also be affected by the students camera quality and internet speed, where it could be an even longer process. With no notice/indication that it was processing, I could see students just giving up and thinking it did not work; that would be very frustrating.
We let one of our students know about this, but she never responded on if she got it to work or just tried one of our other methods to get her submission in.
