Kaltura - Recording Video with Webcam Recorder
Kaltura is the video portal for instructors, students, and staff across the University of Wisconsin System. Kaltura's Webcam Recorder allows users to record simple webcam video and audio directly from within their browsers and upload them to their Kaltura account.
Kaltura's Webcam Recorder works within any WebRTC-enabled
internet browser and is entirely browser-based. No additional software or plugins are needed. The Webcam Recorder only offers basic webcam video and audio recording; users who want to record their screens or need advanced options should use Kaltura's other recording software, Kaltura Capture
