How to Enable Presentation Downloading in Mediasite

*This is a resource for staff who have access to the Mediasite management portal.

*There are different types of downloading you can make available:

  • Podcast- Audio-only mp3 file
  • Vodcast- Audio and all sources of video combined into one video mp4 file (most commonly selected)
  • Publish-to-go (when enacted, the resulting files are only available for download via the management portal)- Allows downloading of stand-alone content files (i.e. audio-only file, presenter camera-only file, computer content-only file)

*The default for a majority of recordings in Mediasite is for content to be downloadable. If this option was previously selected, please skip to Step 7 to access the download files.

  1. Navigate to the Mediasite management portal portal.
