If you use Safari or Chrome browser with a Mac computer and the Moodle course you are in includes videos embedded from Panopto, our lecture capture platform, you may have trouble accessing the videos (see screenshot) until you make a change to the preferences in Safari.

Now when you go to the place where the video is embedded, you should be able to see it.

If you are using Google Chrome browser on a Mac computer and have the same problem, please make the same changes to Safari, as that should also make the necessary changes in Chrome.
