  VIDEO OUTSIDE OF CANVAS: MEDIASPACE

If you're interested in adding and using video in websites and other distribution channels outside of CANVAS, then you should use the Kaltura upload and video file management tool called MediaSpace. You can copy a supplied html embed code for your video file and include that in a web page. The video file will then stream from the Kaltura video servers. Media files can also be added to customized CHANNELS and PLAYLISTS.

To access MediaSpace, the University of Utah has a very specific URL for you to use.  You will be asked to log in with your UofU campus uNID and its associated password...

MEDIASPACE USER GUIDES:

There are two types of support help for using MediaSpace:

A. TLT's Own Articles about MediaSpace

B. Kaltura's MediaSpace User Manual

This all-purpose, comprehensive user guide, written by Kaltura, covers all aspects of MediaSpace. The manual is not so much a "how-to-guide." It identifies and explains the many features of MediaSpace. We recommend using the manual's table of contents to locate a topic of interest.

Kaltura's MediaSpace User Manual

NOTE: The implementation of MediaSpace for the University of Utah varies somewhat from the menu options found in Kaltura's all-purpose user manual. To review instructions and features specific to the University's instance of MediaSpace, see Section A above for "TLT's Own Articles about Kaltura MediaSpace."
