When you view a Panopto video, the viewer will look like this:
*If you do not have Silverlight installed, you will be prompted to do so now. Please install Silverlight at this time, following the instructions given.
The following list gives a description of the various sections shown while viewing a session:
Primary Source Content:
1.) Primary Output
The primary output will playback the available primary stream of the session. This will include at least audio, and sometimes contain a video feed as well.
2.) Pause/Play button
Clicking this will pause or resume playback.
Clicking in this area will jump the playback to the designated area.
This slider bar will adjust the desired audio levels for the session.
5.) Full Screen Mode
This button toggles Full Screen mode on and off.
6.) Playback quality
Hovering your mouse over this area will show you the playback quality in bits per second. Slower connections will display a lower number.
Secondary Source Content:
Please note the availability of these streams will differ depending on the session you are viewing.
1.) Available Tabs
All of these are tabs that are present in the recording. The white tab represents the current source that you are viewing.
2.) Zoom In/Out
Click the - or + magnifying glass to zoom in or out of the secondary source.
3.) Active stream
This is the active tab you are viewing. Note: you can double click on the feed to make the image full screen.
Depending on your session, you will see varying amounts of thumbnails. In this instance, the first thumbnail is of a PowerPoint slide, and the other two are of screen capture thumbnails.
Clicking on any of these will seek playback to the corresponding thumbnail.
This section is used to navigate using different data points such as notes, events, public comments, etc..
Click on any of the timestamps to seek your recording to the corresponding event.
If captions exist for the currently viewed session, click on any of this data to seek the recording to this dialogue.
This tab shows any notes you have made, or currently have access to. Please see the article here for more information. Like the other tabs, clicking on one of these notes will seek playback to the related timestamp.
This tab shows public comments about the session you are viewing. More information can be found here.
Clicking on the Search tab lets us search for any available text data for this session. In this example, we searched for "request" and found 3 results.
Clicking the "Sort" drop box will let us sort by Relevance or Time, while the "Show" drop box lets us sort by "All" "Notes" "Slides" or "Captions" to refine our search.
Clicking on Info will give us extra options in order to manage the content, but only if we have access to these features. For instance, a viewer is not allowed to Edit, Share, or Manage a recording he or she did not create.
Note the presenters, and the folder the session is contained in. "My personal folder" is the description we have of this folder.
Finally, we have the bookmark button. This lets us earmark specific points in the recording to view later. More information about bookmarks can be found here.
