Can instructors use MediaSpace media in Blackboard?

Yes. Instructors who have uploaded media to MediaSpace can link to it in Blackboard. Furthermore, by leaving their media unpublished in MediaSpace and simply embedding the media in Blackboard, the instructor can prevent anyone but their assigned students from accessing that specific piece of media.

How does the new MediaSpace impact my previously uploaded "Private" media?

All media previously uploaded and set as "Private" will continue to behave in the same way. That is, the media will not be discoverable by searching MediaSpace or by browsing through the galleries or channels. Only if you link to that media will people be able to access it, with the added caveat that if that link becomes publically accessible, then *anyone* will be able to access it.

How do I upload my .TS/.MTS/.M2T/.M2TS video file?

How do I make my video unlisted?

Marking your video as unlisted means that your video will not be discoverable in 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.
