Pressbooks - Known Issue - Kaltura videos not embedding properly within Pressbooks (UW-Madison)

Kaltura videos embedded in Pressbooks are not displaying properly.

    When users copy and paste a Kaltura video's oEmbed code from MediaSpace into Pressbooks, the video does not embed properly and instead displays a link.


    This issue affects anyone embedding new Kaltura videos into their Pressbook. The embed will also break if you are making edits to a page that already has a video added. Students and instructors attempting to view the video will not be able to directly view it within Pressbooks.


    This issue is present as of December 4, 2020. The vendor has been notified and is working on a solution.


    Depending on your video privacy settings, students may be able to view the video by clicking on or copying and pasting the displayed link into a new tab.
