Kaltura Capture: Recording PowerPoint Slides


Recording PowerPoint slides enables viewers to easily navigate through a video by jumping to a specific slide, or by searching for text in the slide. 

Kaltura Capture can record any displayed PowerPoint Slides during the recording. Slides are added as chapters with their time stamp as part of the recording. 


  1. Start Recording.
  2. Open the PowerPoint presentation in Slide Show mode before or during the recording and present the slides.

    Each PowerPoint slide you use during the recording creates a chapter in the recording. Slides shown when recording is paused are not uploaded. 
  3. End your recording.

When the recording is completed, the slides are uploaded as images and are set to chapters at their designated timestamps in the recording. 


  • When using multiple screens, slides are only captured and recorded from the screen being recorded.
  • If PowerPoint is opened in Protected Mode, slides cannot be captured in the recording. The following message will be displayed.
    "PowerPoint is running in protected mode - no slides will be captured". 
  • You may click Enable Editing and create an identical PowerPoint presentation to use with Kaltura Capture
  • .PowerPoint Viewer is not supported
  • Kaltura Capture's automatic slide indexing feature does not currently work with Google Slides.
