Lecture Capture Podcasts (Camtasia Relay)

Each semester, there has been an increase in instructors wanting to create videos or podcasts of their lectures. They use a product called Camtasia Relay to record their screen and their voice. These videos are delivered from our streaming server.

Streaming Video

Streaming video plays the video as it is downloading in the background. It allows you to play your videos without having to download a large video file first. An example of streaming video is a YouTube video.

Many of the streaming videos at KUMC are in a Windows Media format (.wmv) which means it will run in Windows Media Player. If you have a Mac, you can play these videos within Quicktime if you install a plugin called Flip4Mac. Make sure your computer can play Windows media videos by clicking on the following link:

Some of the streaming videos are MP4 or MOV files. To play these files, download and install Quicktime on your Windows or Apple machine. To test this out, click on the following links.

You will also come across a Flash Video File (.swf or .flv) in which case you need the flash video player to play. You most likely already have Flash installed on your computer. Click on the next link to test your flash video. (This will not work on an iOS device)
