Can I embed the MediaSpace player in a web page?

Yes, the MediaSpace player can be embedded on a web page. Click the Share tab underneath the media. Copy this code and paste it into the source code for your web page. This can be done on any web page including Drupal and Blackboard pages. Only the owner of the media has access to the HTML code necessary for embedding that piece of media.

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 By default, every piece of media in MediaSpace is unpublished and remains inaccessible until the owner either publishes it to a category or adds it to a Channel with defined access controls.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.

Can videos in MediaSpace be captioned?

MediaSpace allows for the captioning of media and is compatible with SRT files. You may upload your own captions file if you are familiar with the SRT format. Otherwise, Disability Access Services can assist you in generating and adding captions to your video. You can contact DAS at 541-737-4098.

Does MediaSpace allow me to stream live events?

Media Services can assist with the streaming of your live events. These events can be webcast at http://live.oregonstate.edu/. If you would like more information on streaming a live event, please contact Media Services at 541-737-2121.
