- How to enable the Kaltura Capture security setting on MAC OSX
Before you record, you will need to customize the setup options to suit your recording needs. Here are some settings that might be useful to you:
Controls for input devices
Personal Capture allows you to change the following media input devices: screen, camera, and microphone. Click on the drop-down arrow next to the screen, camera, and audio icons to view a full list of options for each setting. You can record a combination of your screen, camera, and audio. Each input device can be easily toggled on or off. Simply click on the device’s icon to switch between enabled/disabled.
Screen and Camera Recording Options
To preview your screen or camera recording, click the drop-down arrow next to the screen icon. A preview of your recording window will be displayed. If you have multiple screens, you can select between them here. You can either record your full screen or a select area.
To view which microphone is recording, click the drop-down arrow next to the microphone icon. A preview of your microphone’s level should be displayed next to the icon. If you have multiple microphones connected to your computer, you can select them here.
To access advanced settings options, click Manage. Next, click the settings icon on the left-hand side of the window. In the settings menu, you can select camera recording quality and screen recording quality. Click save after making any changes.
System Audio Recording
System Audio Recording is the term used to describe recording the sound that would normally come out of your computer speakers.
Windows System Audio: you have the option to record system audio. If enabled, Kaltura Capture will record any audio played from your computer operating system. (iTunes, YouTube, audio from PowerPoint, etc).
Mac System Audio: you do NOT have the option to record system audio. Kaltura Capture does not record any audio played from your computer operating system at this time.
Minimize the recording timer and Tool Pallet
Kaltura Displays a Timer , Start and Stop controls and the White board tools in your recording by default. If you do not want this to be part of your recording you have two options;
- Minimize the tool before you start recording. (or after and trim out the part where you minimize it using the Kaltura editor). To do this click on the line that looks like a minus sign in the top, right corner of the controls.
- In the Kaltura Personal Capture recording application click on Manage> gear icon > Auto minimize when recording> click Save.
