    Kaltura Mediaspace "Share" button does not appear for any Interactive Video Quizzes

    Affects

    All browsers on all operating systems are affected.

    Status

    As of 8/3/2016 this issue is still present. The bug has been submitted to Kaltura.

    Workaround

    As an editor or co-editor of media, you have the option to get to embed code in another screen. Here are the instructions for finding this screen and the embed code.

    1. Go to your "My Media" (https://mediaspace.wisc.edu/my-media) and click the Edit button for the media you wish to embed. Alternatively, if you are on the media page, you can click the Actions dropdown (below the video on the right side) and click Edit
    2. Click the share icon in the upper right corner of the player.

    3. Make sure "Secure Embed" is checked and copy all the text from the embed code box. You can now paste this embed code in your learning management system or website.

    Interactive video quizzes can only be embedded if they use secure embed. This means that your viewers will need to have and log in with a NetID account to view the quiz. Although not yet confirmed by Kaltura, it is believed that the absence of the "Share" button for IVQs is related to secure embedding.

    Private media items and Microsoft Products

    Users report issues with all versions of PowerPoint (OS X and Windows). Users are placing links to media items in Microsoft products. When users click this link their web browsers never open the media. On OS X they see an error message. On Windows, they get stuck at a login page. This only affects media that is set to "Private".

    This issue only affects Microsoft products 2007 or earlier - you can fix it by updating to the newest version of Microsoft Office. This is a known issue with older Microsoft products. You can read more information about it here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/899927.
