Staff: Upload, Share, and Embed

If you wish to upload a video or audio file to Panopto for use on a departmental website (or other web pages), here's how.

Request a Folder

To begin, contact and ask us to create a departmental Panopto folder for storing your video/audio. Let us know if you wish to give anyone else permission to upload to this folder.

OPTIONAL: After ITG creates your departmental folder, you can add members to it yourself. Access the folder and click the Share icon at the top-right (it looks like a less-than sign). Under People and groups, start typing a person’s name. Click the desired name. Designate invitees as either Creator or Viewer. Creators can upload to this folder and view media in it, while Viewers can only view. When you're done adding people, click Save.


  1. Go to Panopto and log in with your Emerson credentials.
  2. You can use the Browse button in the left-hand menu to navigate through your Panopto folders. Click Browse to open the folder panel, then click the arrow to the left of a folder's name to expand it and view its contents. The folder ITG created for you should be in the "Staff/Departments" folder (you can expand this folder even though it will appear greyed-out). Find and click on your unit's folder:

  3. Once inside, click on Create and select Upload media:

  4. You will be prompted to upload your media.

  5. Once the media finishes uploading and begins processing, you may close the upload window.

  6. Your media will appear in the Panopto folder that's open in your browser.

NOTE: If your video or audio file fails to upload, try compressing your file for streaming.


  1. Hover your mouse over the video and click Share:

    The revealed Share button is indicated under a video in the Panopto Web Portal.

  2. A window with sharing settings will appear. If you want your video to be publicly viewable, click Change under "Who can access this video". On the dropdown menu, select Public Anyone can find and access.

Shareable Link or Embed Code

At the bottom of the sharing window, you'll find a shareable link. You can copy this link and share it with whomever you wish. Or, click Embed (to the right of Link). The "Video Embed Options" let you determine how your video will look when you embed it on a webpage. You can leave these as they are or adjust them to your liking. When you're happy with the settings, click Copy Embed Code. Then paste the code into the HTML editor of the desired webpage (for example, in a WordPress post). After saving that page, your media should appear and be publicly viewable:
