Upload Videos to Panopto

Learn how to upload your video files to create new, individual Panopto videos either via the Create button or the drag and drop feature.

Note

  • To upload multiple video and presentation files that you want to combine and turn into one video, you will need to use the Build a session feature in Panopto. For more information, visit How to Use the Build a Session Feature (opens in a new tab)
  • Panopto does not impose a hard limit for file size; however, it's important to note that large files are subject to network timeouts, so we recommend monitoring your upload(s) through completion. It's best to upload large files from a work station with a strong and reliable network connection. If you have issues with uploading larger files, you may need to reduce the file size. 

Upload via Create Button

Step 1

Navigate to the Panopto folder where you want to upload your video file.

The uploading process may take a few moments to finish, based on the size and amount of files. Once the upload process is complete, you can close the window. The video sessions will be processed for playback in Panopto. After processing, you will be able to view or edit your videos.
