HOW TO: Archive Mediasite content
To help the university use its IT resources efficiently and comply with record management policies, it is important to regularly remove from Mediasite any obsolete content that no longer serves a useful purpose. If you have presentations in Mediasite you wish to keep, but that do not necessarily need to be available online, consider archiving an offline copy using one of the methods discussed below.
Archives & Records Management
Download individual presentations
A self-service option is to download one or more Mediasite presentations individually as MP3 (audio-only podcast) or MP4 (audio and video vodcast) files. These formats can be viewed offline on your desktop, laptop, or mobile device, and they are often compatible with other multimedia hosting services.
Download an MP3 podcast and/or MP4 vodcast to your computer using these instructions.
Once you have successfully archived the presentation to your local computer, delete the presentation from Mediasite.
Archive entire folder(s) of presentations
If you want to archive one or more channels or shared folders containing a large number of presentations, the Division of Information Technology can help by using an administrative tool. The tool exports the Mediasite content using a format that allows an administrator to easily re-import it into Mediasite, if necessary.
To request a bulk archival action, please submit a request with the name(s) of the channel(s) and/or folder(s) you wish to archive, and IT will contact you to coordinate further. Because this process normally involves a large amount of data, a requestor-provided portable USB hard drive is often required to facilitate delivery.
