This guide explains how to upload a video to your personal Panopto folder (My Folder) and then embed or share it outside of Canvas.
For help using Panopto to submit to Canvas, see Submit to Video Assignments or Discussions in Canvas.
NOTE: When you embed a Panopto video in a Canvas course, any member of that course can view that video! When you embed a video anywhere else, you'll have to change the video's sharing settings to allow others to view it. See our guide, Share Videos and Folders in Panopto, for help.
Access My Folder
Go to Panopto and log in with your Emerson credentials. You'll open to My Folder. You can also reach My Folder from the Browse section of the left-hand menu. Any video uploaded to My Folder is private until you share it with others.
Upload Your Video
Once in My Folder, click Create and select Upload media.
You'll be prompted to upload a video.
Once the video finishes uploading and starts processing, you may close the upload window.
Your video will appear in My Folder.
Get the Shareable Link or Embed Code
Hover over the video and click Share.
A window with sharing options will appear. Click the large grey rectangle under "Who has access" and choose a permissions setting for your video (if you choose "Anyone at your organization with the link", users will need to log in with their Emerson accounts). Then click Save Changes.
At the top of the sharing window, you'll find a shareable link.
Copy this link and share it with whomever you wish. Or, click Embed, copy the entire code that appears, and paste it into a web page's HTML editor to embed your video on a web page (a WordPress post, for example).
