Getting Started Watching Captures and Media

Platform users may watch captured or uploaded media in any browser or on any mobile device.

Viewing Media within the Media Channels

Many users will use the Media Channels as their primary means of viewing captures; however, they’re also used by Content Creators and Administrators. The Media Channels are fully integrated into the Manage Media suite within the Platform. For most users, this will be the default view when logging into the Platform.

  • Choose Manage Media from the top of the screen.
  • Click on the desired Channel. These are accessible from the fully customizable horizontal selections in the middle of the screen.
  • Select the video you want to watch. The video page will open, showing a preview of the video, tags, and In this Capture information.
  • Press the Play button to open the HTML5 Media Player and watch the video.

Watching Media from the Real-time Class Feed

Captures and linked or uploaded media content posted to the Real-time Feed can be watched directly from the post.

  • Choose Discussion Feed from the Main Menu.
  • Select the desired group or scroll to the posted capture.

Using the Media Player

The HTML5 Media Player provides a full-featured viewing experience for captured or uploaded media. The Media Player offers the ability to watch videos, move forward and back in the video, turn on and off closed captioning, and take private notes.
