Duplicate a Kaltura Entry


Kaltura allows you to duplicate almost any entry, but it's not necessarily intuitive how to do so. This tutorial describes how to create a new copy of your media. 

These instructions apply to all UCSD community members with active directory credentials (students, instructors, staff, etc.). 

Critical Concepts

Steps to Take

Kaltura entries can be duplicated in either Canvas or MediaSpace. Remember that your "My Media" is identical in both locations, so it doesn't matter where you duplicate it. 

In CanvasIn MediaSpace
  1. Log into Canvas.
    1. Go to https://canvas.ucsd.edu
    2. Enter your active directory credentials.
  2. Within Canvas, click My Media in the left navigation.
  1. Log into MediaSpace.
    1. Go to https://mediaspace.ucsd.edu
    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 Media.
  1. Find the entry you want to duplicate and click the pencil icon on its row.
  2. In the gray box next to the player, click Launch Editor.
  3. In the left navigation of the page that appears, ensure that the Video Editor icon is selected. (It looks like a film strip. Or maybe a road.)
  4. At the top of the page, click Save a Copy

  1. Change the title of the new entry (if desired) and click Create.
  2. Click OK, Media Page, or My Media, depending on where you want to go.

Your new entry is created and you should see it in your "My Media." Remember that it will take a little while for the new entry to be processed by Kaltura.
