The Video Service offers the following as part of this agreement:

  • Prerecorded Streaming Video: OIT offers two platforms that allow users to select and watch video content whenever they choose, rather than at a scheduled broadcast time. These platforms are provided through YouTube for users to post publicly available videos and Microsoft Stream for videos restricted to users with an OHIO ID. Videos hosted through the Prerecorded Streaming Video service offering are for official University use and are not interactive (i.e., they are not a collaboration tool). Panopto and Flash Media Server are no longer supported as prerecorded streaming video platforms. Panopto is intended for classroom video capture only. Please refer to the Teaching and Learning service offerings for classroom and teaching video capture tools.

  • Live Streaming Video: OIT offers two platforms that allow users to broadcast live University events in real-time over the internet from a desktop computer, laptop computer, or webcam. These platforms are provided through YouTube for users to post publicly available videos and Microsoft Stream for videos restricted to users with an OHIO ID. Live videos hosted through the Live Streaming Video service offering are not interactive (i.e., they are not a collaboration tool - see Microsoft Teams Live Events). Adobe Connect and Panopto are no longer supported as live streaming solutions and are intended for classroom video capture only. Please refer to the Teaching and Learning service offerings for classroom and teaching live streaming video tools.

Accessibility

For a video to be accessible, it must have captions.

Captions are a text version of the audio of a video. Unlike subtitles, which are typically a straight translation of spoken dialog, captions can and should include other audio elements that are significant to the understanding of the video. Captions can also include notations for who the speaker is and when speakers switch. Caption files are text files with timing added to them. A video player will use this text file and join it with the video. The timing in the caption file is used to show the text on the screen at the appropriate times.

Ohio University strives to make its digital resources and services accessible to all visitors, including those with disabilities who may also be using assistive technology.
