Manual Recorder - for end users
For academic users new to Panopto, we recommend reading our Manual Recorder guidance before downloading the software by the method outlined in the installation guides on that page, which will ensure you have configured it correctly. The following links are more useful for IT staff needing the direct software package (manual recorder current version: 18.104.22.168):
For older operating systems, or for Linux, consider using the browser-based Panopto Capture recorder.
For CONNECT PCs, the manual recorder can be installed by the end user from the Oxford Applications menu. The manual recorder available on CONNECT machines is typically updated twice yearly (January and July).
For Orchard Managed Macs, the manual recorder can be installed by the end user via the Orchard Software Centre https://docs.orchard.ox.ac.uk/OrchardSoftwareCentre.
Remote Recorder - for teaching spaces and lecture theatres - (Windows only)
To install the remote recorder on a lecture room PC for scheduled automatic recordings, we recommend you first read and follow the guidance on our Remote Recorder page. The installation packages for the remote recorder (current version: 22.214.171.124) can be downloaded at the following links:
When installing the manual or remote recorder, you may be asked to enter a server address. Use ox.cloud.panopto.eu
The remote recorder requires a description. Please use something that allows the central Replay team to identify the location of the recorder, ideally in the format Dept/Building - Room - PC
e.g. Exam Schools - Room 2 - Presentation laptop
or English Faculty/St Cross Building - LT2 - AV booth PC
The remote recorder also requires a registration key. The generic key for the 2023/24 academic year is afe20ed00a897eca4c56e8cd97005555
If you are installing a new instance of a remote recorder, always contact firstname.lastname@example.org after installation with a list of staff who require access to manage the recorder or schedule recordings. If updating an existing remote recorder, the central Replay team need not be notified.
For CONNECT PCs, please raise an application installation request with the Desktop Services team to install the remote recorder. You will need to provide them with the asset tag of the PC, and specify the description of the recorder (see above for naming convention). The current version of the remote recorder available on CONNECT PCs is 126.96.36.199. Updates to existing remote recorder instances on CONNECT PCs are automatic twice yearly (January and July), and do not require additional application installation requests.
