Can my content on MediaSpace be password protected?

You cannot password protect your media in MediaSpace but you can restrict who has access to it to only certain users who must first log in before reaching your content. By default, every piece of media in MediaSpace is unpublished and remains inaccessible until the owner either publishes it to a category or adds it to a Channel with defined access controls.

Can I restrict who sees my content in MediaSpace?

MediaSpace allows you to restrict access to your media by assigning it to a restricted category or by creating a Channel and assigning an access list to that Channel. By placing your media exclusively in one of these categories or Channels - and not publishing it publically anywhere else - you can thus control who can access your content.

Can I use MediaSpace to archive my media?

No. MediaSpace is intended to be used as a media distribution and management tool, not an archival tool. Please keep your original media files stored somewhere safe, such as on your personal computer, a CD/DVD, or other form of electronic storage.

Where is my content from Media Manager?

How do I make my video unlisted?

Marking your video as Unlisted means that your video will not be discoverable in Kaltura MediaSpace either by browsing the site or by searching. But the video will remain accessible so that if you share a link to your video with others, they will be able able to watch your video without having to login. But if this link is shared by others or added to another web site, it may become public to the world. This is a suitable solution for discreet but not sensitive material.
