Kaltura is a set of tools for media hosting and delivery. It is integrated with my other UNH tools including myCourses for hosting video and audio content for classes and Zoom for storing meeting recordings. Kaltura also provides the MediaSpace tool available at media.unh.edu for sharing media files with the campus community and the public.
For course use, it allows instructors and students to upload video/audio files to a course. The media files can then be viewed using a streaming media player right on the course page. It is also possible to create webcam recordings, screen recordings, and video quizzes. Kaltura can even be used to submit media assignments.
Features of Kaltura:
Kaltura can be found within myCourses (Canvas) and MediaSpace (media.unh.edu) and can be used in a few different ways. Click on any of the following to learn more.
Please refer to the official Kaltura documentation.
Check to see if the file type meets these requirements:
Video: FLV, F4V, MOV, MP4, QT, M4V, AVI, 3GP, ASF, WMV, MPG, M1V, M2V, MKV, Ogg, RM, and WEB
Audio: MP3, MP1, AC3, AAC, Vorbis, AMR, PCM, WMA7/8/9, WMSpeech, FLAC, QDM2, RA, Nellymoser, Cook, GSM, and SPEEX
Make sure you are on a strong Internet connection. If your device has a weak Wi-Fi signal you may experience problems. Use an Ethernet cable rather than Wi-Fi for faster speeds.
Links for these features can be added to your course's sidebar or to a module. Please visit this link for more information.
If you are a student and cannot see your upload, it probably means that your instructor has enabled "moderate content" within the Media Gallery. This means that student uploads will need to be approved by the instructor before they become visible to the rest of the class. You can visit My Media to see your previous uploads and verify that your media was uploaded successfully.
No! When adding media to a course, you will have the opportunity to re-submit a past upload without needing to upload a second time.
You can add collaborators to your video, or you can hand over ownership of the video completely.
Kaltura adjusts the quality of video playback depending on the quality of the viewer's Internet connection. For example, a video will look much better on a stable hardwired Internet connection compared to a wi-fi connection with low signal.
Processing time will vary depending on a number of factors, including length of video and amount of load on Kaltura's servers. As a general rule, videos should not take longer than 24 hours to process.
