Ensemble Help:

Laptop and iPad Directions

  • Videos recorded with the iPad camera app, then uploaded to Ensemble, will experience upside videos at times, depending on the orientation of the iPad when recording. If using an iPad, make sure the Home button is located horizontally to the right when you video.

  • You are advised to use the Ensemble Live app in Self Service to record and upload media, which is a smoother, less complicated process anyway.  For support in configuring the iPad app, please visit:

iPad App - Ensemble Live Configuration


Editing Ensemble Videos:
Ensemble has features like Trim built into the program, there are more advanced editing tools out there. Teachers may download the video from their Ensemble Library and then open it in the Windows 10 video editor program but finding it in the Start Menu and typing “video editor.”  From there, they may use many different features to clip and past various parts of the video, resave and re-upload to Ensemble.  For more information on the video editor, here is a helpful link.
