Media Hopper

Media Hopper is the umbrella term for video-related services at the University of Edinburgh.

Media Hopper Create is the (original) Media Hopper service and is sometimes referred to as the ‘University’s YouTube’. It is both a recorder and a player. Download the recorder to seamlessly record your screen, audio and video (or any combination thereof) and upload to the dedicated streaming server. You can choose to publish privately, a limited audience or to the world. Additionally, you will be prompted to assign a license to your recording.

Media Hopper Replay is the name given to the new lecture recording service. If you’d like to record your lectures, notify the Teaching Office and they can ensure you are timetabled in a supported room. If you’d like to record a lecture / seminar / presentation which isn’t in a supported room, please get in touch with your local learning technology service.
