Create an Ad Hoc Recording

After the Kaltura Classroom software is installed, see the Kaltura Lecture Capture Administrator’s Guide, you can start recording your media.

If authentication has been configured for Kaltura Classroom, see the article on Using Kaltura Classroom with Authentication Settings.

If you want to record your screen only or camera only, click on the video icon to turn off either one of the devices.

If you want to record multiple inputs, click on the Plus sign to configure the additional inputs. See Input Settings.

After your inputs are configured, either by using the default settings, or you have selected your input(s) and defined all the settings, you are ready to record.
