Kaltura - Kaltura Video Players

This guide describes the video player options available in the University of Wisconsin System (except for UW Madison) instance of Kaltura. The video player is the wrapper which goes around the video content and determines which features (such as play button, volume controls, and closed captions) are available to viewers.

The user creating the video link or embed (typically the video owner) determines which video player is used when they create the link or embed; the viewer does not get to choose. The same video content can be displayed with different video players in different places. 


Here are the video players available on the UW System (except for UW Madison) instance of Kaltura. Users who would like a new player to be created with a different combination of features should submit a Change Request.
