My extension doesn't work with the latest Panopto update. My university uses an older version, on which I was able to program the extension, but as soon as they update Panopto I promise to update the downloader. Doing it earlier is impossible because I don't have access to an updated platform :)

- Added support for Embed video: thanks to Salvo <3 

Download video from every and site.
This is a simple extension for Google Chrome or EDGE that allows you to download videos from Panopto for later viewing.

NB: the extension works if your university (or whatever) has not made any changes to the Panopto player; If it uses different players from the default one in Panopto (it's something that could be checked in the code) this extsension won't works. Unfortunately I don't have access to all players from all universities in order to make an universal version :(

HOW TO USE: Navigate to the Panopto video itself you want to download, Click on the extension icon (it's green and located at the top right of your browser) and choose where you want the video to be saved.

NOTE: Feel free to comment if you have problems using it, or if it stops working.

Risk impact

Panopto Video Downloader requires some risky permissions and may not be safe to use. Exercise caution when installing this extension. Review carefully before installing.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

Panopto Video Downloader may not be trust-worthy. Avoid installing if possible unless you really trust this publisher.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that a Chrome extension may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Chrome extension reputation on Chrome Web Store, the amount of time the Chrome extension has been around, and other signals about the Chrome extension. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing a Chrome extension, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.

It's not working at the moment but It was a life saver for me last year. So It deserves this stars I think.

The manifest file declares the requirements and permissions that a Chrome extension will have access to. By reviewing the manifest, you may be able to determine if a Chrome extension is over-reaching (for example, if an extension is overriding your new tab page, or search provider, or requesting access to your web activities without any good reason).
