Linking to Kaltura media files outside of Blackboard

If you wish to provide access to a media file outside of Blackboard, there is the ability to copy the embed code so that you can load the file in a web page. As the file is hosted on the Kaltura server, users will not need to login to Blackboard in order to play the media.

QUICK STEPS: Accessing the embed code for a media file

  1. Upload your file to your My Media area.
    • Note: If the media you wish to access is not stored in your My Media but you have collaborative rights on it, you will need to change the view via the View Media I own drop down.
  2. Click on the file name or thumbnail.
  3. Select Share and the embed code will then be listed beneath.
  4. Select all the embed code by clicking in the code area and using Ctrl and A on your keyboard. Then copy the code by using Ctrl and C on your keyboard.
  5. Paste the embed code in to your webpage.
