Webcam Recording

This option would be used when you want to record a video using your webcam.

Note: the Webcam recording tool is only supported by certain browsers – we recommend Chrome or Firefox (Internet Explorer, Edge and Safari are not supported for this tool).

Files recorded will always be stored in your My Media area regardless of whether you are selecting the Webcam Recording option from within a course Media Gallery; from the Build Content Kaltura Media option; or from directly within My Media itself.
