Kaltura - Media Collaboration - Changing media ownership, adding editors and publishers (UW-Madison)

This document covers the attributes of UW-Madison Kaltura Mediaspace's collaborators feature. With the collaborators feature, you are able to designate other users as owners, co-editors, and co-publishers of your media items. This is extremely beneficial if you work in a collaborate environment in which other people might need to manipulate or post media for you. An example of this might involve an instructor uploading a media item and then designating a local support person as a co-editor and/or co-publisher so that person can embed the content in a learning management system or departmental website.

For more information on the collaboration feature, permissions granted to co-editors/publishers, and how to add people as co-editors/publishers, please see the Kaltura document located here:

Please note that the person you are trying to add must have logged into Kaltura MediaSpace at least once in order for you to be able to find a person and add them as a collaborator. If the user has not logged in at least once, you will get an error message: "Error: user does not exist". Once you've confirmed the user has logged into try adding them to the channel again.

If you would like to retain access to media but change ownership from you to someone else, make sure you add yourself as a co-editor/publisher before changing the owner.

As of 06/23/2016 MediaSpace does not provide the functionality for you to bulk change the owners, co-editors, or co-publishers of individual or multiple media items.
