Download your existing Kaltura video

You can download Kaltura videos to your local computer by following the steps below. First the video must be made available to download. Then the download can take place.

Please note that when you create a screen recording with Kaltura Capture with both your screen recording and your webcam enabled, Kaltura keeps these two video files separate. If you download a screen recording back from Kaltura for use outside of Brightspace, only the screen recording and audio recording are retained in the downloaded file.
