This document describes the steps to add YouTube media to Kaltura.

  2. Enter the Video Page Link or the Content ID and click Preview.

    NOTE: To obtain the URL, right click on the video in YouTube and copy the URL. Only public YouTube videos are supported.

  3. Enter the relevant data and click Save.
  4. Go to My Media to see the YouTube media. Click on the media to open and play it or the Edit / pencil button to edit the YouTube entry.

    NOTE: If the original owner of the YouTube video makes it private or deletes the media after you've added it to Kaltura MediaSpace you will see a message that says "This video is unavailable" when you try to play it.
