How do I record PowerPoint slides using Kaltura Capture?


When you record a slide presentation the Kaltura Capture application uploads the slides as chapters and indexes the text so it can be searched for in the video. When recording slides, PowerPoint must be in Slide Show mode. Follow these steps to set your screen settings for recording a presentation.


Open Kaltura Capture desktop recorder.

Use the drop-down menu beneath the screen icon to select which will display the PowerPoint deck.

Use the drop-down menu beneath the mic icon to select your audio source.

Use the drop-down menu to select or mute the webcam source.

Click the screen, mic or webcam icons if you want to mute any source for your recording.

When viewing the presentation video in Kaltura MediaSpace each slide can be viewed independently, or jumped to as required, as Kaltura Capture creates a new time stamped chapter for each individual slide.

In order to see this:

  • Locate the burger menu in the top left of the video.


  • When you click on the burger menu this opens up the chapters (i.e. individual PowerPoint slides), you can select the one you want to jump to, and view, from this point in the video. 




If you want to film yourself talking alongside the PowerPoint presentation, you can do so by:

  • Selecting all three inputs, Camera as well as Screen and Audio making sure that the correct inputs are selected from each individual drop down menu:




  • When the presentation video is uploaded to Kaltura MediaSpace, you will see that on playing the video, the Camera recording is embedded in the bottom right of the presentation screen:
