Anyone logged into MediaSpace, Compass2g, or Moodle, that can see the video in a Media Gallery or Channel will see the Download option IF it is active for the video file. The general public will not have this option. The Download tab will be visible below the video. Within Compass2g and Moodle, if the video is embedded in a page via the mashup tool/in-context, the download option is not visible. It must be viewed in a gallery or channel within the LMS or MediaSpace.An important note: If you make the video asset available for download in MediaSpace, Compass2g, or Moodle, the Download option will appear wherever the media asset appears in the other publishing locations. This is an example of the cross functionality of settings available in Kaltura publishing points.
