Provide podcast in .mp3 format so that students can listen to podcasts on their phone

At present, Panopto provides podcasts in .mp4 format only (video format). This means that when a student is listening to a podcast on their phone and their screen locks the podcast stops playing. For the podcast to be useful for a student to listen to on their phone it should be provided in .mp3 format. Can you make this change so that this feature becomes useful for students.

Thanks you.

The mobile app no longer behaves like this. Users can open a video on the app, lock their phone, and continue playing the audio only while the phone is locked. If you are looking to be able to download a video (audio only) in an .mp3 format, please refer to the following post: https://community.panopto.com/discussion/1519


  • I second that!

    In general, it would be desirable if Panopto focused on improving their podcast experience. At Copenhagen Business School, we are using podcasts a lot, but unfortunately run into some shortcomings. That means that our teachers, students don't get the best experience compared to other platforms.
