Kaltura - Legacy Kaltura Embeds Disabled 01/15/21

In a long-planned move, University of Wisconsin System Administration has disabled any remaining embed code or video links pointing to UW institutions' retired, D2L-itegrated, Kaltura servers. Users who attempt to access videos embedded or linked from those legacy Kaltura servers will now get a country error message reading "Unauthorized country: We're sorry, this content is only available in certain countries." Users encountering this error should contact the video owner and ask them to update their links or embed code to point to the Digital Learning Environment's current Kaltura environment.

The University of Wisconsin System has been assisting campuses in migrating their Kaltura content from the legacy Kaltura servers to the Digital Learning Environment's current Kaltura environment since 2018, and users haven't been able to directly access the legacy Kaltura environment since D2L was retired in June 2020. Each campus created its own plan for which videos would be migrated from the legacy Kaltura environment to the DLE Kaltura environment, and in most cases, any actively-used, instructor-owned video was migrated to the new environment. 

Video owners should see the Inserting Videos in Canvas guide for instructions on how to update the links and embeds pointing to their videos.
