Hi Mary!  You got it.  😊

Exporting Video from Rise
If you are viewing a Rise course that includes a video, you might have the option to right click on the video and choose "Save Video As."  Your browser and where you have the Rise course hosted (LMS or Web) might factor in to your permission to grab that content.  This example is from using the Rise share URL:

Making a Video of a Rise Course
Rise will publish either an output that you can upload to your learning management system, or one that is suitable for your website.  Both outputs contain multiple files to support the interactive nature of Rise where the learner is in control of the navigation.

Could you use Peek to record a screencast of you navigating the Rise course?  Peek will automatically create an .mp4 file that you could then load onto your video hosting service.

Hi, Elena-Corina. It sounds like the size of the video files is 300 MB larger after being exported as a part of a Rise 360 course.

Typically, Rise 360 will compress your video files to reduce file size while maintaining quality. Sometimes it will end up a little bit larger to normalize the bitrate to run consistently on all devices. We are investigating why video file sizes are increasing too much, however, and I'll keep this discussion updated with changes.

Is this increase causing problems when uploading your output to your LMS?

Hi,

Yes, I agree with you, normally Rise 360 compress a little bit but not this time.

I’ve even tried to delete the video blocks within the modules, create new ones but the export remains at 815MB. And yes, it creates problems uploading this output to the LMS we use since it has a limit around 500 MB for each module.
Thanks,
Corina

Thanks!

If you want to see the problem directly, look at the course, under my credentials called “Inter-Institutional Share! event on inclusive language”.
I thought some hidden cache memory would be attached to it since I’ve uploaded several times different versions of compressed videos. Otherwise, I don’t see the explanation.
Thanks,
Corina

Hi Elena-Corina!

I checked in on your case, and I see Renz shared that this behavior is due to a software bug. As soon as we know more about that, we'll pass the information along to you. 

In the meantime, is it possible to host your videos on a web server and embed them using a multimedia embed block? That will significantly reduce the file size of the published output.
