Managing Mediasite Presentations/Recordings Frequently Answered Questions (FAQs)

What do I see shared folders and what are they?

The Mediasite administrator creates shared folders and you and other users cannot edit or delete these folders from My Mediasite, however, if you have the appropriate access, you will be able to view, add and edit content in them.

To view your shared folders, click on the "Shared Folders" heading from with the My Mediasite Portal.

How can I edit, trim or chunk my recorded presentations?

To edit videos, please log into your My Mediasite Portal.  Locate the presentation you want to edit.  Then click on the "Edit Video" link that is just to the right of the Presentation Thumbnail.

Editing Guides:

NB:  New editing guides will be available soon, for now please Ignore any “Firefox Bug” reference – the Online editor is Cross-Browser now.

Why can I can watch a recording I have recently created just fine but my online audience get an error message?

The visibility setting for a presentation's general settings needs to be set to "Viewable" so You and users with appropriate permissions will be able to view the presentation.

When set to Private (Default), only you will be able to view this presentation.

NB:  Changing the Viewability of a presentation can be found on page 9 of the My Mediasite User Guide.
