How do I upload a video file into Panopto (.mp4, .wmv, .mov, etc.)?

Having recording access to Panopto includes the option to upload an external video file (such as .mp4, .wmv, .mov, etc.) into WGU's Panopto server site.


If you choose to upload a video file into Panopto, instead of using the Panopto recorder, you do not need to install the recorder. You'll simply use the Create > Upload media option. Using this option is recommended if you've recorded your video using an alternative method, due to Panopto technical difficulties.


Note: The video will be uploaded into your assessment's "drop box" or "assignments" folder. This guarantees the privacy of your video, and also generates a video link for you to submit for evaluation.


Please open the PDF document attached at the bottom of this article for step-by-step instructions. You'll notice the tutorial recommends compressing your video file - if uploading is projected to be quite long. The free compression tool recommended is HandBrake.
