Disabling Downloads for an Individual Video

  1. In your Canvas class, select the Panopto folder.
  2. Hover over the video you wish to disable and select Settings.
  3. On the next screen, in the Overview section, click Share, click Change in the Who Can Access This Video section. 
  4. Click the option for the restrictions you want.
