Share a Kaltura Video Published to a MediaSpace Channel


If you've published a video to a MediaSpace channel, there's a "best way" to share a link to that particular video, provided that the person with whom you're sharing has permissions to see what's in the channel. 

Because anyone can create a channel and add media, these instructions apply to all UCSD community members with active directory credentials. Because channels are specific to MediaSpace, these instructions aren't applicable to Kaltura within Canvas. 

Critical Concepts


Steps to Take

  1. A screenshot of the Kaltura player page, with the share link circled.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 Login.
    3. Enter your active directory credentials.
  2. Click the profile icon again and select My Channels.
  3. Find the piece of media in question and click on it. (Don't click the pencil icon to edit it - you want to be on the so-called "player page," not the "edit page.")
  4. Below the video, click the Share tab.
  5. Click the Link to Media Page, if it's not already selected.
  6. Copy the URL and send it to the person in question. Note that you can also click Email and your default mail program will open with a message that auto-populates with the link, the title, and the description. 

As a reminder, the recipient will only be able to view the media if they have privileges to view the content in the channel.
