  5. After selecting the Share tab, you have the following options:
    • Link to Media Page: If you would like to share a link to a video you can copy the link. You will need to have the video set to Unlisted under the publishing settings. Alternately the media can be set to Published to either a public channel that everyone can view or an open channel which requires users to login with their NetID if you want to share the link to the video more widely. For more information on publishing settings see Kaltura - How to Change Publication Settings in MediaSpace (UW-Madison) .
    • Embed: Embed code can be used to embed a piece of Kaltura media in a website HTML page or other online tool. After you click the Embed tab select the player and player size from the list of options at the bottom of the sharing tab. Finally you can copy the 'Embed Code' and paste it in your own HTML page or other online tool. Embed code overrides entitlements and publishing settings. Depending on where you use the embed code, it could make the media public to the world - be thoughtful about where you embed media. For information on how to use embed code in your site, please see the documentation for your site or tool.
    • oEmbed: oEmbed code is often used for WordPress and Pressbooks. Click the 'oEmbed' tab and select the player skin and player size from the list of options at the bottom of the sharing tab. Finally you can copy the oEmbed link and paste it in your WordPress or Pressbooks page. For oEmbed to work on your WordPress site, you WordPress admin would have to have implemented the steps found in this document: Kaltura - Enabling MediaSpace oEmbed in WordPress (UW-Madison) .
