Publish Media in KAF

This article describes how to publish media in KAF.

By default, media that you upload is private. You can access private media on My Media. On My Media, you can grab the embed code of private media or publish it to make it public in your Media Gallery.

Publishing media makes the media publicly accessible to users. You can publish media: 

  • In multiple Media Galleries
  • Only when file conversion is complete and the media is not waiting for moderation

If you cannot publish media, ask your Kaltura Application administrator to give you the required permission.

To see where media is published

For published media in My Media, click the green Published button to see where the media is published.

Click the green Published button again to close the pop up.
