How can I find the link of an embedded video file?
« on: January 05, 2020, 03:27 PM »
Hello!

I want to download videos from the Panopto platform, how can I get the direct link to the file?

Thanks!

Any hint?

The videos are broken down into small chunks and they are streamed one after the other.

Is there a way to capture/save these videos?

Thanks!

Any hint?

Sure, it'll be streamed using HLS or MPEG-DASH protocol.

Ask the creator to enable offline download for mobile devices.

Unfortunately the creator has not enabled the download feature, is there a third party solution?

Doesn't answer what I said.

... is there a third party solution?

Use Google, best you're going to get without giving us:
a) the URL;
b) the account details to access it so we can see what works.

What is the question exactly? I asked if we can download the videos and they said they have disabled that feature.

I cannot give url and account details are they are behind a login page.

What are the best practices to achieve this generally? They may have been tried to panopto as well?

Any idea?

The file is hidden behind a JS apparently.

The only way to record it is to capture the screen but I wonder if there is any better way?

You could try UrlSnooper.. go guarantee it would work but worth a try.
