Critical Concepts

Steps to Take

  1. If you're not already logged into MediaSpace:
    1. Go to
    2. Click the profile icon at the top right of the page and select My Media.
    3. Enter your active directory credentials.
  2. Find the video in question by scrolling or searching, and click on either the title or thumbnail (NOT the pencil icon).
  3. A screenshot of the embed options for Kaltura media.Below the video, click the Share tab. Information should populate below.
  4. Click the Embed sub-tab.
  5. [OPTIONAL] Configure your embed.
    1. Start Time: Feel free to enter a start time for the embedded video, if desired. Note that viewers can still watch the full video if they want to - it doesn't hide any of the video from them or anything like that.
    2. Player Size: While there are three sizes from which to choose, you can manually edit the embed code yourself to change it to something specific once you paste it on your webpage.
    3. Responsive Sizing: We recommend that you check this box. This will essentially make it so that the "player size" you select is a maximum size. So the video player will dynamically shrink if the page gets really small. This is generally a mobile-friendly option.
  6. Select all of the code in the textbox and copy it to your clipboard (Ctrl-C in Windows, Cmd-C on a Mac).
  7. Paste the embed code on your web page.
