If Kaltura is not working, you can use Canvas's built-in video service.  Using the above Kaltura service is recommended, however.  The following contains information about how to upload a video for an assignment submission: https://community.canvaslms.com/t5/Student-Guide/How-do-I-submit-a-media-file-as-an-assignment-submission/ta-p/279
