Creating a Kaltura Capture Screen Recording

  • You have successfully installed Kaltura Capture and are now ready to start recording.

    In the Kaltura Capture Recorder, the default selection is the screen as the primary input and the camera as the secondary input. To record only one input, you must select the input and then turn off the secondary one. By default, all recording inputs are configured to the optimal quality available, so you can start recording.
