Panopto Bug Alert

Panopto5Logo

Panopto has recently notified us of an issue with the Panopto Recorder. The issue: Enabling “Capture Computer Audio” results in randomly truncated recording – Panopto for Windows

Problem

If “Capture Computer Audio” is selected, there is a chance that the product may stop capturing audio sometime during a recording. This results in the session ending prematurely and without warning.

What products are affected

Panopto for Windows v5.0, v5.1

How do I resolve this issue?

Download and install the latest version of Panopto for Windows from https://desales.hosted.panopto.com. Removing the earlier version of the Recorder is not necessary. This issue is resolved in the product versions listed below:
Panopto for Windows x86: 5.1.0.26220 or later
Panopto for Windows x64: 5.1.0.26221 or later

Will this impact the recordings already made on the PC?

No, all recordings made earlier will remain accessible/editable using the new version of the Recorder. Also, Panopto for Mac is not affected by this issue.
