This article explains how to save a Mediasite presentation as a video (.mp4) file that can be downloaded to a local computer and played with any standard video player.
By default, Mediasite presentations are saved as packaged files that can only be streamed from Mediasite’s native web player. Mediasite’s “Vodcast," or Video Podcast, feature allows video owners to convert and download their presentations as videos for local storing.
Navigate to MyMediasite and authenticate with your KU credentials. Note: This process cannot be completed until the presentation is fully processed by Mediasite.
Select the presentation that you wish to download from your presentation library. Click on the “Edit Details” link to the right of the video preview.
On the “Edit Presentation” screen, click on the “Delivery” tab.
On the “Delivery” tab, check the box for “Vodcast” and then click on the "Select a Vodcast Project" field.
Then click on the "Select a Vodcast Project" field and select “.mp4 video” from the drop-down list.
Click “Save” at the top of the window.
The server will begin to process the video. You can check the status of the project on the "Delivery" tab.
When the conversion is complete, click the "Download to Computer" link on the bottom right.
Click the "Download Vodcast" button.
