Downloading multiple videos

Perhaps I am missing something. There seem to be any number of posts which require content to be able to be download in bulk. This might be a folder, a suer account, or a playlist.

the point is that there are any number of reasons that users want to do this, from editing the content (no offence, but Panopto is not a video editor on a par with proper systems) to redistributing on platforms that Panopto is not appropriate for.

So the question is, where is the bulk download functionality and if there isn't any, why not?

    Hi Chris,

    Apologies that we haven't responded to your question. It didn't land in our "unanswered" queue.

    Currently, there is not a bulk download option in Panopto, but this is high on our list of features that we're considering for future development for the reasons that you've outlined in your post.

    While I don't currently know if this will make it into a future release, we should have more information to share about our roadmap at the end of August.

    Any progress on this high priority feature?

    We are trying to encourage faculty to adopt Panopto for hosting class video content. They like the convenience of capturing raw video, but preferring to use real video editing tools they say the difficulty of managing multiple files with Panopto is a barrier to adoption.

    Hi @Nick DeMello,

    I reached out to the teams working on this, and they've informed me that this feature is on the roadmap but not in the short term. Additionally, I have made them aware of your organization's interest in this feature.

    Best wishes,

    Shouting into the void here, but it's 2024 and I can't believe that Panopto has not moved on this issue at all. There are threads in this forum dating to 2021 asking for the ability to batch or bulk download. 

    I understand that Panopto probably has the stance of "it's not that simple" e.g. still preserving the functionality of deciding if you want the downloaded video to have side-by-side or picture-in-picture presentation, resolution etc but I mean BRUH SERIOUSLY

    I checked with my manager about this, and can confirm that this particular feature request is one that our Product Management team is actively tracking. Additionally, for added context, we are continuing to stack rank this feature request amongst our other most popular feature requests.

    I took a look at your organization's account and can confirm that yours is one already on the list of interested parties for this particular feature request. I will make your local Panopto admin aware of your added enthusiasm for this feature, as well, so they can keep you up-to-date with any additional updates that we may provide our points of contact.
