Kaltura (Capture) - Downloading multisource video

Sometimes University of Wisconsin System students, staff, or instructors want to download a local copy of multisource recordings that they made with Kaltura Capture. For example, they may have made a recording of simultaneous webcam video and screen sharing, and now they want to download both video sources to edit them. Kaltura makes it easy to download one of those two video sources (called the "parent" source), but makes it much harder to download the second source (called the "child" source). This guide shows users how to download both sources from a multisource Kaltura video which they own.

The following instructions are adapted from Kaltura's How to download a multi-stream media guide.


Users can follow these instructions to add a third source to their multisource video, which unlocks an option to choose which video source to download:

6) Add a slide in the supported formats: JPG or PNG. It doesn't matter what's on the slide. You'll delete it again in step 11, below.

7)  Click Save and View in Player to finish adding the extra slide.

8) The Content Selector icon (a stylized set of three overlapping screens) will now display on the right side of the video player. Click the Content Selector icon and select different source file to view.
