Kaltura (Recycle Bin) – Permanently Delete Items from the Recycle Bin

The Universities of Wisconsin's Kaltura video management system now provides a "Recycle Bin" feature that allows users to delete video entries with an option to restore them later (within 30 days of being deleted).

Users no longer have to worry about accidentally deleting a video or changing their minds after deleting a video. Not only will the video be restored to its rightful place, but its original name, tags, details, metadata and functionality will also be restored. 

Although the items in the recycle bin are automatically deleted after 30 days, a video can be permanently deleted manually by the media owner.

This guide explains how to permanently delete items from the Recycle Bin.

Deleting a Single Video

  1. Access Kaltura through Canvas MyMedia (Canvas > Account > My Media) or through Mediaspace ( > log in > My Media).

    The Recycle Bin page opens.
