Kaltura, Obtaining embed code for media

How to create/obtain an embed code for a media item, and allow viewing without logging in

How to get a link or embed code for media

You must be logged in to https://mediaspace.illinois.edu to see the link to "Share" a video.  
  • Click the "Share" button under the player.
  • Two tabs will load with the link and embed code.
  • For a link:
    • Select the 'Link to Media Page' tab.
    • Copy the link in the text box and paste it where ever you are sharing it.
  • For a embed code:
    • Select the 'Embed' tab.
    • Select a player and embed size. This is not an option for all media types.
    • Copy the embed code. You will need to paste this into the HTML of a webpage--or publish.illinois.edu, Twitter, or other social media service for the media to display.  
Note: Users who click on the link or the embedded video will be prompted to log in as they do to https://mediaspace.illinois.edu.  If you want people with no U of I connection to view the video you will need to do one of the following:

  • If the media has been published to a public gallery, anyone who clicks on the link will view the media, without logging in, just as when they visit https://mediaspace.illinois.edu without logging in.
  • If the media is set to Unlisted, anyone clicks on the link will also be able to view the media, without logging in.  To set a video to Unpublished, choose "Publish" from the actions menu under the video and choose "unlisted." 
(Note: if your media is published to a non-public gallery, such as might be used for a class, you would have to create a copy and make it unlisted in order to share it in this way.) 

Setting media to Unlisted.
