MediaSpace is a cloud based web service developed by Kaltura which facilitates the conversion and distribution of various audio and video media formats. Faculty and staff may upload media content to the MediaSpace server which automatically converts and optimizes your media for hassle-free distribution on the web. Once on uploaded, MediaSpace will provide links and embed code that you can use to share your media with others.


As questions arise, we will continue to build up the Support and Help sections. Support will be used for videos while the Help page will contain written instructions and documentation. Please email computing@berry.edu to request instructions or report problems with the service.

How do I upload and share media in my VikingWeb courses using Kaltura's Learning/LTI Tool?

  1. Log into VikingWeb and go to one of your courses.
  2. Next go to the Learning Tools page in the left side menu. Note: As of Summer 2015, by default the Learning Tools page will appear in the VikingWeb course template. If the Learning Tools page is not there, you may have used copy course or accidentally erased it. In the VikingWeb Help section there are tutorials on how to add new pages as well as how to add new features/portlets to a page.
  3. Click 'Add another tool to this page' and click on the featured tool, 'Kaltura – Course Media Gallery'.
  4. Now return to the Learning Tools page and click on the tool you just added, 'Launch the Kaltura - Course Media Gallery'. This pops up a new window logging you into where you will be able to upload new media or publish existing media from your MediaSpace.Berry.edu 'My Media' folder into the Course Gallery.

That's it! When students go to the course's Learning Tools page and click on the 'Launch the Kaltura – Course Media Gallery' they will be able to view all of the media you've published to the Course Gallery. By default, students will only be able to view the content and make comments.

Installing Kaltura's CaptureSpace/Record a Presentation software

1. Log into MediaSpace.Berry.edu.
2. Under “Add New” in the top right, click on “Record a Presentation”.
3. Download: You should be taken to a page for you to download the Microsoft or Mac version. Go ahead and download the version you need.
4. Install: This takes a minute to get installed so be patient when you’re clicking. I expected it to open or notify me once installed, but I don’t remember it ever letting me know. You may verify that it’s installed by seeing the Kaltura CaptureSpace icon added to your desktop. If you're on a Mac you'll click and drag the icon over into 'Applications'.
5. Activate: To run the presentation recorder, repeat step 2… Log in to MediaSpace.Berry.edu (if you’re not already) and click on “Record a Presentation”. This time, the software should popup. Again, mine took a few seconds to run the first time so be patient. Note: If you've been waiting quite a while, it may be behind your current window.
6. Record: You'll choose based upon your hardware and what you're trying to produce.
7. Editing: After you've recorded your lecture, you'll be able to do very basic editing such as: trimming the beginning or end, chopping out portions of the middle, adding titles, credits, etc.
8. Finally upload your presentation. This will upload your presentation to 'My Media' and automatically begin converting the video into the various formats needed to playback on all the different devices and screen sizes.



Do we have to upload our videos right when we make them or can we save them to the computer hard drive (or USB drive) and upload later?

  • After you make a recording, it will also show the Save button beside the upload and preview buttons as an option.
  • By default, the recording is getting saved to the ‘Library’ location on your cpu before it uploads. To see where the library location is or change it, click on the settings tab within the CaptureSpace Desktop Recorder.
  • Note: multiple feeds such as a screen + webcam recording ends up as multiple movies (.mp4 files). You could combine these in a basic video editing software to control what you want to show to the student at specific times. Screen vs. Webcam, etc.


What do we need to do to make the video so that a student can switch between the streams of video (camera, screen, presentation)? What do I need to do when recording the video so that is an option?

  • There is nothing you need to do. If there are multiple streams recorded and uploaded, the 'select stream' (monitor + play) button will appear in the bottom of the media player. The student may then easily switch between streams by selecting them anytime they would like.


What is the difference between using "Record Presentations and Lectures" and "Record screen and webcam"?

  • “Record Presentations and Lectures” also allows you to upload a presentation along with all the feeds. You may then sync the presentation’s slides or pages along with the recorded audio & video.
