Share Media from the Kaltura Media Gallery or My Media

As a live room Instructor (Set as a Manager or Moderator in a Channel/LMS) you may share media from the Media Gallery or My Media in the live session for synchronous playback. 

  1. Select Tools in the upper bar of the live room.
  2. Select Video Library from the Course Tools pop-up.
  3. Select Media Gallery or My Media respectively.
  4. Find the Kaltura media you want to share in your live session.
    Utilize the search or scroll through the list of media.
    If you are searching for media, you must enter at least 3 characters to render results. 
  5. Select the file(s) you want to share or use by entering Shift + Click or Ctrl + Click to select multiple files. 
  6. Click Add to playlist to play later or click Play.

💡By default, all microphones are disabled while a video is being played in the room. This is to prevent echoes caused by participants' speakers being streamed back into the room. Microphones are re-enabled automatically when the video is paused or stopped. 

The microphone settings may be configured both through the room settings menu or at the company level by Kaltura's backend.

💡Kaltura Media plays through the Kaltura Player. Playing a video or changing slides, plays the video or slides for all participants in the live session.

💡Your real time sessions may be recorded. Completed recordings are automatically published to Media Gallery within 10-15 minutes after the real time session.
