You can also upload a video that you have recorded on your phone by navigating to on your mobile browser, signing in, and selecting Add New (plus icon) > Media Upload. Please see Kaltura - Mediaspace service overview for more information on using the MediaSpace website.

Method 3: Use a Cloud Storage App to Transfer Video to a Desktop/Laptop Computer

It can be easier to use a desktop or laptop computer to upload a video to your Kaltura My Media library. To transfer your video from your smartphone to a desktop or laptop computer, you can share/upload videos from your phone's camera app to a cloud storage app like OneDrive, iCloud, or Google Drive. Once the video is saved to your cloud storage app, access your cloud storage app from a desktop/laptop computer and download your video file. Then follow the instructions in the guide Kaltura (Canvas) - Uploading Videos to upload the video file to your My Media library.

Sharing a My Media Video in Canvas

After uploading your video, we recommend switching to a desktop or laptop computer to add the video from your My Media library to a page, discussion post, or assignment submission. Share your video by embedding it with the My Media tool in the Canvas Rich Content Editor or HTML embed code or by copying and pasting the video's share link.
