Remove a webcam video recorded in error

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) > > Remove a webcam video recorded in error

Scenario: You’ve recorded a Panopto video, but accidentally recorded your webcam and screen, whereas you actually only wanted to record your screen.


Solution: you can remove the webcam recording by following the instructions below:


  1. First you need to download the audio recording (as this is tied to the webcam recording).
  2. Open your Panopto video in the Editor
  3. Click on the Settings button (cog icon) in the top right corner of your video
  4. Click Outputs
  5. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click to download the ‘Podcast’. This will download a mp4 file to your computer.
  6. Once complete, go back to the editing screen for your video
  7. On the far left side, click Streams. You’ll see two streams listed (primary = webcam, and secondary = screen). Make a note of their names for later.
  8. Click Add Stream
  9. Use the large box on the right side to upload your downloaded audio file as a Primary Stream.
  10. You will now have two primary streams. The new audio stream will need to process (please wait)
  11. Once completed, click the 3 dots next to the primary stream you no longer need and click Delete (it should be the ‘webcam’ stream, but hopefully you made a note earlier!).
  12. Save changes by clicking the Apply button in the top right of the editor
