    If you notice a mistake in a slide, it may take time to correct this.

    If you don't stop the recording to do this, you must spend time editing the video. The servers also bare the extra burden of hosting long stretches of useless video (a waste of fossil fuels and added maintenance/space costs). If you do stop the video, you must spend time merging parts.

    Pausing functionality is there in much simpler recording software, so I'm puzzled why this would not be implemented in Panopto Capture, an otherwise convenient tool.

    How do I up-vote this on behalf of all of my faculty who are not going to come here to make an account to vote?


    And a hot-key - perhaps using the same one YouTube uses or Zoom.

  • Panopto Capture should have a pause button. This will allow users to manage content and screens in a more comfortable manner than switching windows on the fly.

    A pause option would be a terrific addition! Let's get it done!
