Replay migration to EU cloud server.

As of 1st July 2016, our Replay content is hosted on a North American (NA) cloud server at https://oxforduiversity.hosted.panopto.com. As some of you may be aware, we will soon be migrating this content to a new European (EU) cloud server.

From 11th July 2016, the NA server will become read-only and no new recordings can be uploaded to this server. All existing recordings will remain accessible to students on the old server during the content migration period, which is expected to last two to three weeks. However, the recordings on the NA server cannot be modified or edited. At the end of the process, all existing Replay content will be moved to the equivalent folders on the new EU server and we will remove the old LTI links in all WebLearn sites.

This will require you to update your Windows and Mac Panopto recorder software to point to the new EU server address at ox.cloud.panopto.eu

Throughout July, you will see two LTI menu links: the existing link typically labelled “Recorded Lectures”, and a new LTI menu tool typically labelled “Recorded Lectures (new)” or “Recorded Lectures (EU)”. Clicking this new LTI tool will take you to the new EU server, directly to the new Panopto folder and subfolders associated with your WebLearn site. Initially this folder will be empty, but once the copy process has completed near the end of July, this folder will be populated with the content from the NA server. The migrated content may then be modified and edited again.

Please update your recorder software before 11th July so that you do not experience a break in your ability to create new recordings. We recommend you also take this opportunity to download and install the latest 5.2 version of the Panopto recorder software, as older versions (v5.0 and earlier) will be unsupported from July 29th:
