Changing Settings for Embedded Videos

  • You can change embed options before copying and pasting the embed code in Panopto. These settings also apply when you're adding a video to a Canvas course using the WYSIWYG content editor in Canvas.

  • Things you can change before embedding a Panopto video: 

    • Aspect Ratio 

    • Width (px) 

    • Height (px) 

    • Start At (time) 

    • Show Captions

    • Auto-play

    • Enable "Watch in Panopto" button

      • Turning this setting on will allow users to pop out of Canvas and watch the video within the Panopto web interface instead.

    • Shot Title of presentation

    • Show Logo with presentation

    • Interactivity (search and rating, comments, etc) 

      • Leaving search and rating on will allow viewers to use the search tool in the video. Ratings are automatically set to off system-wide in Panopto and cannot be turned back on.

      • Turning off all interactivity will only allow your viewers to watch the video and nothing else.
