  8. Can old videos be imported into their delivery system?
    Videos can be imported directly from Youtube and any saved files can be uploaded from a desktop or mobile device.

  9. Where will videos created with Kaltura MediaSpace be stored?
    Kaltura MediaSpace stores videos in their management console that is set up with an intuitive interface and allows the user to organize their content, search their media, edit, moderate, create playlists, and more via the MediaSpace webpage. Created content is also stored in a folder on the user's computer so they can always have a local copy at hand.

  10. Can we continue to create videos with Camtasia (or other preferred tools)?
    Use the Camtasia Relay Publishing Plugin for Kaltura. Before Camtasia Relay can publish presentations to Kaltura, your Kaltura account must be set up to accept Custom Data. Custom Data allows Kaltura to accept important presentation information from Camtasia

  11. Can video content be exported?
    Local exporting: Any videos created with Kaltura have the option to have them saved locally on the user's machine as well as in the Kaltura MediaSpace.
    External exporting: Kaltura offers an All-In-One Distribution Module that provides a set of connectors for distribution to destinations like Youtube, Hulu, Facebook, Dailymotion, and other video streaming platforms.

  12. What are supported video resolutions?
    Kaltura video players currently support Standard Definition (480p), Semi-High Definition (720p), and True High Definition (1080p). Kaltura is working to meet industry standards in order to offer support for 4K resolutions, but that is not available at this time.

  13. Do interactive video quizzes export to the gradebook?
    Kaltura currently interacts directly with Canvas, Moodle & Blackboard gradebooks, but other LTI LMS integrations are scheduled to come later in 2017

  14. What languages does Kaltura MediaSpace support?
    Kaltura currently fully supports 10 languages and are continually working on adding more. Since Kaltura provides the capability for KMS administrators to upload additional languages through the language module, there are also languages available that Kaltura did not provide themselves. Because of this, they can be used, but are not fully supported by Kaltura incase there is a problem with them. This chart shows which languages are available and whether or not they are fully supported.
