Difference between playlists and channels
What is the difference between a playlist and a channel?
A playlist is a collection of media that can be shared within a single player outside of Illinois Media Space. A channel is a collection of media that is shared with specific users on Media Space.
Please note that YouTube videos do not have the same options available as media uploaded to Kaltura. For example you will not have the same sharing features, or clipping and trimming. You will need to access the available sharing options from YouTube directly. This media can be added to playlists and channels.
