Panopto on iPad and iPhone
How to access Panopto on Apple mobile devices by changing Safari's cookie settings, and limitations using Panopto on these devices
To access your 'My Panopto Folder' via Canvas on an iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch:
- You must use the built-in Safari web browser (not Chrome, Firefox, any other browser, or the Canvas or Panopto apps).
- You must change a Safari setting to enable 'Cross-Site Tracking', as explained below.
You should then be able to log into Panopto via https://canvas.ox.ac.uk
Once logged in, there are a few differences to accessing Panopto via your desktop or laptop computer. The main one is you cannot easily create or edit content on a mobile device -- this is still best done on a computer.
Note: some Apple mobile devices can record and upload video to Panopto, but it varies significantly by model so we do not support these features.
