Logging In to Kanopy Videos
You no longer need to create an account to browse the Kanopy collection, watch films, and view playlists in a browser on a computer.
You do need to create an account if creating watchlists/playlists or watching videos from mobile devices and Chromebooks (download the required Kanopy app first at the App Store or Google Play, then create your account).
Your steps to access Kanopy may differ depending on if you're on campus and how you arrive at Kanopy's website. To get started:
NOTE: If you had a Kanopy account from another school or library, use that account to login, then hover over your name, go to My Account>My Libraries, and choose Add New Library. Select Find Your Library and follow the prompts.
Kanopy requires a mobile app for watching videos on iOS and Android phones, tablets, and Chromebooks. After you download the app, you can click Get Started to set up an account, or Log In if you have previously created an account.
Through the app you will have access to the complete catalog, your Watchlist, and can continue watching films started on other devices.
