Publishing Media

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 your Media Gallery.

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

  • In multiple channels/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.
