The Kaltura Screen Recorder continues to function properly in all other major browsers. To ensure that the Kaltura Screen Recorder continues to work properly in Chrome (42), Chrome needs to be set to use Java, using this flag: chrome://flags/#enable-npapi. For more information read here. If a user is using the Chrome browser, version 42, and did not enable the NPAPI flag, a message will be displayed in the KSR screen.

  • Kaltura Screen Recorder Troubleshooting Guide - Since the Kaltura Screen Recorder uses Java which may cause issues on certain devices and browsers, a clarification note was added in the screen recording media creation. The note states that "The Kaltura Sscreen Recorder uses Java which has certain limitations on certain devices and browsers. For more information see here". We intend to add an option for MediaSpace Admins to enable/disable this note and to edit the text and link as they wish to.
