That's it! Your Panopto app is installed and you are signed in. You can use the app to watch, upload, and record videos.


Searching for Videos

One of the coolest features this new app offers is the ability to search for videos by searching for words spoken in the video or presented on the screen in a video. In the picture below, I searched for the word "Smile," and the app showed me a video with the word in the title AND all the instances the word was uttered or appeared on the screen:
