I am not able to see the Video viewer

I need to download and it says to go to video viewer but it just brings me to the home page and there is no obvious video viewer where I can download and start to use

    Hi @Kari White,

    The Panopto viewer is web-based, both as an interactive player in its own browser tab, or embedded in an LMS course, such as Blackboard or Canvas. If you log into Panopto and select a video, the Panopto interactive viewer should appear in a new tab. I wasn't sure if you are trying to download a video to watch, or the Panopto for Mac application to record content, so here are our articles on both:

    If you are attempting to download a video, please see How to Download a Video as an MP4 for guidance.

    If you are attempting to download the Panopto for Mac application, where you can record content, How to Download and Install Panopto for Mac provides guidance on this.

    I hope this helps - if you have any additional questions, please feel free to ask - we're always happy to help!

    Best wishes,
