In Kaltura, how do I install and use CaptureSpace?

Kaltura CaptureSpace, Indiana University's personal capture solution, is a desktop application that gives you access to a wider range of recording options than the webcam recording option in Kaltura MediaSpace. Recordings created using CaptureSpace can be uploaded and managed alongside your other content in MediaSpace.

Note:
CaptureSpace has a maximum recording time of two hours. If you are recording and reach the two-hour mark, CaptureSpace will end the recording.
