Frequently Asked Questions About Video Streaming

What resources does the HWC Library have available for video streaming?

The CCC Libraries subscribe to two video platforms: Kanopy and Academic Video Online (AVON).

Can I stream videos from the library's video databases on Zoom?

Unfortunately, due to copyright, authentication and bandwidth requirements, neither Kanopy nor AVON support streaming of videos, or "viewing parties", for online classes via Zoom or any other teleconferencing software. There are a few suggested alternatives to synchronous streaming for online classes in Streaming Videos Remotely.

Can I request a video that doesn't appear in either Kanopy or AVON?

If you would like to use a video that doesn't appear in either database, contact a librarian. Please keep in mind that while we will do our best to access titles, not all films can be accessed through Kanopy or AVON. In such cases, we are happy to assist with locating possible alternative titles.

I am showing a video from one of the databases for an in-person class on campus. Will I need to log in?

If you are on campus and are using CCC equipment or CCC WiFi, you will not be prompted to log in.

My students will need to watch a video on their own for class. I have provided the permanent link in the course site. Will they need to log into the library's system to watch the video even though they have already logged into their course page?

If students are accessing the link to the video remotely, they may be prompted to log in again. If they are, they would need to log in with the same username and password they would use for all CCC accounts. Alternately, videos can be embedded in your course site to avoid the possibility of students being prompted to log in twice.
