Panopto Video Access Issues

Posted September 8th, 2020 at 10:30 am.

We have received numerous reports from instructors and students about access to Panopto videos. There are a few known issues that Panopto tech support is working to diagnose and fix. In the meantime, here are two workarounds that will fix many problems:

  1. By design, Panopto creates an account for course participants (if needed) and grants them access to course videos the first time they click on a link in the Panopto block in a Moodle course. If you are having difficulty accessing videos, try clicking the link to a recording in the Panopto block in one of your Moodle courses.
  2. As a workaround for video access issues, instructors can get a Panopto share link that works for Anyone who has the link and add it to a course page as a URL resource. (Turn editing on, then click Add activity or resource and choose URL)

We will post more information as we have it from Panopto.
