Making a Mediasite Recording Downloadable

Issue/Question

How do I make my recordings from Mediasite downloadable?

Resolution

Video tutorials and additional Mediasite information can be found by clicking here.

 Note: Recordings must be downloaded within the myMediasite portal.

To make a recording as a Publish to Go recording:

  1. Click the recording tile you want to change.
  2. Click Edit.
  3. Click Delivery.
  4. Click the check box next to the Publish to Go option.
  5. Click Save.
  6. The Mediasite server will then begin the process of creating a Publish to Go package of the recording. Depending on the server usage, this process may take up to 30 minutes.

 Note: When creating and executing the download option of a Publish to Go recording, a zip folder is downloaded to your computer. Each portable presentation contains a launch file (Player.html) and all the files required to view them locally and/or offline. This zip folder must be unzipped before they can be played backed, hosted on a server, or copied to a CD or DVD. This zip folder will split the audio and video streams into seperate files and will require the use of a third-party video editing software to recompile the recording into one cohesive file. It is reccomended to use the Video Podcast / Vodcast option to achieve one cohesive file for offline viewing.

To make a recording as a Video Podcast:

  1. Click the recording tile you want to download.
  2. Click Edit.
  3. Click Delivery.
  4. Click the check box next to Vodcast option.
  5. Click on Select a Vodcast Project.
  6. Select Vodcast at 2.5Mbps from the drop-down menu.
  7. The Mediasite server will then begin the process of creating a Video Vodcast option of the recording.  Depending on the server usage, this process may take up to 30 minutes.

 Note: When creating and executing the download option of a Video Podcast recording, a single MP4 recording is created and placed onto your computer. The MP4 can then be viewed locally and/or offline.
