Publish Media in MediaSpace

This article describes how to publish media in MediaSpace. 

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

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

  • In multiple categories and multiple channels
  • Only when file conversion is complete, and the media is not waiting for moderation

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