Kaltura MediaSpace Overview

Kaltura MediaSpace is a fully customizable media destination site for your organization. MediaSpace is an out-of-the-box video-centric site that can serve as a repository for media collections across the organization or a full-featured "Corporate YouTube.”

MediaSpace enables community, collaboration and social activities by leveraging the power of online video. MediaSpace enables true collaboration with many contributors, moderators and viewers in a multitude of channels, projects and communities.

The MediaSpace User Interface

Kaltura MediaSpace 5 (KMS 5) implements a responsive web design for optimal user experience across all devices. The MediaSpace User Interface displays differently on each device.

Changing the KMS Language

MediaSpace users can change the language of their specific instance dynamically. When a language is changed, it is saved on a persistent cookie on that specific browser until it is deleted. For a list of the latest  KMS and KAF languages that are supported, see What are the supported KMC, KMS & KAF languages?

To change the display language in KMS

  • Click on the Flag icon on the upper right section in the header and select the language of your choice from the drop down menu.

Administrators can create additional languages and customize existing languages.  See Localization for KMS/KAF Administrators - How to Change Your Kaltura Application Language? for additional information.
