Change Kaltura Video Viewing Permissions


By default, videos that are uploaded to via the Kaltura Capture recording application are listed as "private," which means that only you can access them unless you a) embed them in Blackboard courses using the Kaltura Media mashup tool or b) change the video permission to "unlisted" and share the URL.  Unlisted videos may be viewed by anyone who has the video URL. 

Alternatively, videos uploaded via the Media Upload option are "unlisted" by default, but can be changed to "private" if desired.
