What is My Media?

My Media is your personal media storage where you may upload and manage your media content. From the My Media area, you may edit your videos, manage captions, create clips, delete videos, add users as collaborators, publish videos to the Course Media Gallery, and more. My Media is different for each user because it shows media you yourself have uploaded or created over time. Nevertheless, it is the same for each user when accessing it from MediaSpace or Moodle (note: by default you will not have access to My media content from our MediaSpace. Contact tlc@ecuad.ca if you want to publish your content outside of Moodle.). Items in My Media are private to you until you decide to publish them.

Media File Formats: Mpeg-4 and QuickTime Formats (MP4, MOV, QT, and M4V), Flash Video (FLV and F4V), Microsoft Windows Formats (AVI, ASF, WMV and WMA), MPEG-1/2 (MPG, M1V, M2V, MP3), WAV, Matroska (MKV), OGG OGM & OGV, WEBM, 3GP, RM, Webex (ARF), MXF

What is the maximum file size I can upload for a single file?

MediaSpace does not impose a limit on the upload size. Keep in mind that larger uploads will take more time and consume more of your computer's memory during the uploading process.

How can someone else upload media for me?

You will have two options if someone is uploading media on your behalf. The channels feature in MediaSpace makes it possible for multiple users to share access to a media item on MediaSpace.

Keep in mind, however, that the person who uploads the media remains its owner. If the owner leaves, his or her media will eventually be removed. If you want your media to remain on MediaSpace longer than any particular individual, then we recommend uploading with a generically owned ID.

The second option is to have someone else upload the media and then change the owner. In this case the media is transferred to a different owner, as only one ID can have ownership of an item. Your collaborators can share media to you. If you are sharing media with another person, they will need to add you as a collaborator.

How do I change media ownership?

  1. On the 'My Media' tab, find the media item and select the 'Edit' button.
  2. Beneath the media, select the 'Collaboration' tab.
  3. Select the 'Change media owner' button.
  4. Enter the GT Username for the new owner.
  5. Select the individual and choose 'Save.'

How do I allow for co-editing or co-publishing?

  1. On the 'My Media' tab, find the media item and select the 'Edit' button.
  2. Beneath the media, select the 'Collaboration' tab.
  3. Enter the GT Username of the person you are adding as a collaborator.
  4. If you would like the individual to have editing rights check the 'Co-Editor' box and choose 'Add.'
  5. If you would like the individual to have publishing rights check the 'Co-Publisher' box and choose 'Add.'
  6. If you would like the individual to have both editing and publishing rights, select both boxes and choose 'Add.'

How can I change the thumbnail?

  1. Locate the video you wish to set a thumbnail for.
  2. Select the Edit icon in the upper right corner.
  3. Select the thumbnails tab.
  4. Choose an option for adding a thumbnail to the video:
    1. Upload Thumbnail: Upload a thumbnail from your desktop and use it as the default thumbnail.
    2. Capture: Use the player to seek the frame you would like to use as your default thumbnail and then click the Capture button.
    3. Auto-Generate: Select one thumbnail from ten automatically generated thumbnails of the video and set it as the default thumbnail.
  5. Follow the on-screen prompts for completing the selected option.

How can I generate embed code for an entry in MediaSpace?

  1. After the media loads, click the Share tab located underneath the media item
  2. Click on the Share tab, which will allow you to select one of the above:
    1. Link to Media Page: If you would like to share a link to a video you can copy the link. You will need to have the video set to Unlisted under the publishing settings. Alternately the media can be set to Published to either a public channel that everyone can view or an open channel which requires users to login with their UserID if you want to share the link to the video more widely.
    2. Embed: Embed code can be used to embed a piece of Kaltura media in a website HTML page or other online tool. After you click the Embed tab select the player and player size from the list of options at the bottom of the sharing tab. Finally you can copy the 'Embed Code' and paste it in your own HTML page or other online tool. Embed code overrides entitlements and publishing settings. Depending on where you use the embed code, it could make the media public to the world - be thoughtful about where you embed media.
    3. oEmbed: oEmbed code is often used for WordPress and Pressbooks. Click the 'oEmbed' tab and select the player skin and player size from the list of options at the bottom of the sharing tab. Finally you can copy the oEmbed link and paste it in your WordPress or Pressbooks page.

  • The following special characters are not searchable: &, <,>. For example, searching for "hello&world" will not yield any results.
  • The character “/” is not searchable and ignored by the system. For example, searching for the date 1/1/2015 searches for the string 112015
  • The character '+' is treated as the spacebar - and is used as the AND search operand.

For example, searching for hello, world will result with all entries that include either hello, or world in one of the searchable entry attributes.
