Working with Video


If you are going to be pre-recording your lectures, you can download Universal Capture for a PC to your computer. You can also upload a video you have already created. 

If using a Windows device, the user needs to have Windows 10 or later for Universal Capture Personal to work. In some cases, you may need admin permission to download software on a device.
