HOW TO: Download Your Mediasite Presentation
You can download a copy of your Mediasite presentation for archival or offline viewing. The instructions below describe three ways to download your Mediasite presentation from your MyMediasite portal.
Webinar: Downloading Mediasite Content (28:34)
From within the list of presentations in your MyMediasite portal, select the name of the presentation you wish to download. A summary of the presentation will appear.
Select Edit Details in the right column. Options for editing the presentation will appear.
Check the appropriate checkbox(es) to select your download format(s). There are three downloadable formats:
Podcast: Creates an audio-only MP3 file. Choose your quality.
Video Podcast: Creates a single MP4 video file. Choose Vodcast MP4. This format is best suited for offline playback on mobile devices. Please note that video podcast creation for videos longer than approximately three hours may fail.
Pro Tip: The "Vodcast MP4" option will add the presentation's banner to the top of the vodcast video. To create a vodcast video without the banner, choose "Vodcast MP4 No Banner."
Publish To Go: Creates a self-contained .zip package containing all of the components necessary to watch your presentation offline. This format is best suited for offline playback on desktops and laptops, as some mobile devices cannot read .zip files. Publish To Go (P2G) packages are advantageous to the other download formats because they maintain the viewing experience - watching an offline Publish To Go presentation will look just like it would if you were watching the presentation online and will include closed captions (if available) and other metadata not available in the Podcast and Video Podcast delivery formats.
Select Save at the top-right.
From the presentation summary, select Download to Computer, located at the bottom of the right column.
See the instructions below to download your Mediasite presentation in the format you desire.
Select Download Podcast to download the audio-only podcast as an MP3 file.
Please Note: The server must first create the MP3 podcast file before the download option will appear. Please be patient while the server creates the file and refresh the page periodically for the "Download Podcast" option to appear.
Select Download Vodcast to download a video podcast as an MP4 file.
Please Note: The server must first create the MP4 vodcast file before the download option will appear. Please be patient while the server creates the file and refresh the page periodically for the "Download Vodcast" option to appear.
Publish To Go
Select Download Publish to Go to download the Publish To Go package.
If the Publish To Go package has not been created yet by the server or if it has expired, select Add Publish to Go to start the creation process.
The download package may take several minutes to be prepared. If you do not wish to wait, you may close the dialog box, and Mediasite will continue preparing the download behind the scenes, but there will be no notification when the creation process completes, so you must remember to return to the page by selecting Download to Computer again.
When the download is ready, the dialog box will display a Download Publish to Go button. Select the button to download the .zip file to your computer.
