Kanopy: Home


Kanopy is a video-streaming platform dedicated to thoughtful and thought-provoking films, established to provide academic institutions with essential films that foster learning and conversation. In 2016, Kanopy expanded its services to public libraries and now delivers a diverse collection of 30,000+ enriching films, available to stream anytime and anywhere.

Kanopy provides each participating public library and university with a dedicated and customizable website through which members can stream films.

The service includes features such as captions, transcripts, clip creation, and playlist creation that allow users to share videos.

Viewable on computer, mobile device, or television via a web browser supporting HTML5 video or the Kanopy app for Amazon Fire Tablet and Fire Stick, Android, Apple iOS, and Roku.
