Relinking Mediasite Videos to Panopto

Links pointing to Mediasite videos in LearnJCU subject sites, must be relinked to Panopto videos.

Mediasite will be shut down on the 30th of June 2022. When this happens it is important that videos are re-linked within LearnJCU if they are required for ongoing Learning and Teaching.

Things to know:

  • More than 90% of videos in Mediasite have been copied over to Panopto. The work now is to locate them, organise them so they better align with their related subjects, and re-link them.
  • Videos are broken up into two categories:
    • Videos that were in you recorded with the Mediasite Desktop Recorder or uploaded will be in a folder in your My Folder in Panopto which has been given your username (ie. JC123456.). This video, also embedded above, shows how to locate these folders.
    • Captured Lectures are stored in an institutional area and will need to be recovered by either the Video Capture team or Digital Support Assistants in colleges. See below.
  • Some videos you may have had access to in Mediasite may have been housed in someone else's folder so you may not have automatic access to these in Panopto.

Migrated videos will be in this folder in your My Folder in Panopto

Migrated videos can be found in sub-folders in your My Folder in Panopto

If you cannot find your videos in Panopto contact videocapture@jcu.edu.au or your colleges Digital Support Assistants and provide:

  • Title of the video
  • Recording ID - 34 digits found at the end of the Mediasite video URL, example https://mediasite.jcu.edu.au/Mediasite/Play/e1b497faafe141f890e46bdda5c1ed591d
