Kaltura Capture offers users the ability to record both screen and camera in just one click. It also includes a new automatic slide detection feature—if a user has a PowerPoint presentation in presenter mode when recording the screen, Kaltura Capture automatically detects and captures it, allowing the viewer to search and browse by slide.
Note: Kaltura Capture replaces the older CaptureSpace tool. CaptureSpace may still be installed on your computer, but it will no longer work. Users must download this new version.

Completing and Uploading Your Recording
Note: Editing your recording (trimming beginning and end, and clipping) is only available in your My Media space online once the recording has been uploaded. It cannot be edited via Kaltura Capture before uploading.
While it is unlikely you will need to access the recording file, all recordings are stored locally on your computer. On Windows recordings are stored at C:\ProgramFiles\Kaltura\Capture\Recordings. On a Mac, recordings are stored at /Users/[your username]/Library/Preferences/Kaltura/Capture.
If you save a recording without uploading it, the Management window shows all recordings completed on your computer. You can choose to Delete or Upload recordings from this screen.
