How to Upload Video Files to Panopto

On occasion, you may wish to upload a video to your Panopto folder that is not a standard lecture capture session, such as an instructional video or a recorded Zoom class.

In this article, we will provide the steps using the Create button in Panopto, which can batch upload video files via the Create button to create individual sessions.


  • Creator access to Panopto


Uploading Using the Create Button

Select Browse from the left-hand navigation on your Panopto site, select All Folders or My Folders on the left-hand column, and then locate and select the folder to which you want to record your video. Note: in the example image, All Folders is selected.
