Kaltura (Media Central)

If your videos are hosted on the Media Central video portal or in the University's account on kaltura.com, you may embed the videos directly within a Roxen page.

Media Central is powered by the Kaltura media management system. For more information or to get started, email webmedia@princeton.edu.

Important Update

The Kaltura Video and Kaltura Category List components generate embed code that requires the Flash plugin. Because Flash is not available for most mobile devices, these components will not generate mobile-compatible video embeds.

Because of this limitation, we now discourage the use of these two modules. Instead we recommend grabbing the embed code from Media Central and pasting it into an RXML Component. You can view the embedded video tutorial below to find out where you can find the embed code in Media Central.

If your video has not been categorized so that it publishes to Media Central, you can still grab the embed code directly from kaltura.com; however, make sure you verify the Advanced Options under Preview & Embed. The "Legacy Flash Embed" player should not be selected.
