How to Upload a Video to Panopto
Video and Photographic Cameras
Most video and photographic cameras will record in their own proprietary format which may not be supported by the Panopto video platform. If you are using a Video or Photographic Camera to shoot your video make sure that you set the recording format to mp4 (or one of the supported formats listed above) before making your video. This will ensure the video can be uploaded to the system.
Have your video prepared and ready in one of the supported video formats. The following formats are the most commonly used: mp4, m4v, wmv, mov. Other supported formats are: 3gp, asf, avi, flv, mkv, mpg, mpeg, ogv, webm
