Upload Existing Media from Computer to Kaltura

If you've already made a video in a common format using MovieMaker, iMovie, Premiere, or other software or have a video saved on an SD card from a digital camera, you can upload it to Kaltura.

NOTE: If your instructor has asked you to upload a PowerPoint presentation, you will need to present your PowerPoint with narration and do a screen recording. You CANNOT upload a PowerPoint directly to Kaltura.

Tips

  • All common video, audio and image formats and resolutions are accepted.
  • Content should be less that 2 hours in length and less than 1200 MB in size.
  • For best results with video, we recommend preparing videos in 1280x720 pixels and using the H.264 video codec at about 4000 kb/s.
