In the past, when accessing My Media from the Insert Stuff button in the D2L HTML editor, users had the ability to record themselves here using their webcams. With web technology moving away from Flash towards more modern HTML5, this feature was removed by Kaltura but replaced with the more robust and user friendly Kaltura Capture.
