Sharing your media in Panopto

If you haven't already, you will first need to request a media library for your course or administrative office and then upload your media to Panopto. After you have uploaded media to Panopto, it will show up in your media library. If you are using the default video playlist, your media should display in this playlist. If you would like to create separate playlists for content, read the playlist help pages

To link to individual media, read below.
