- Search for or scroll until you find the piece of media you want to link to or embed. Click on it.
- After the media loads, click the Share tab located underneath the media item:
- 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 and also set the start and end times for the video. People you send the link to either need to have co-viewer, co-editor, or co-publisher access to the video as described in Kaltura - Media Collaboration: Changing media ownership, adding editors and publishers . Alternately you can set the video to Unlisted under the publishing settings to let anyone view the link. Be careful to not set any videos which include copyrighted content to Unlisted. You can also be set a video 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 but restrict it to UW-Madison users. For more information on publishing settings see Kaltura - How to change publication settings to media and channels in Kaltura 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 you can set the start and end times for the video, and 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 and what you are embedding.
