Sometimes certain (video) content should only be available for a limited period of time, to facilitate this one of the features of the Kaltura video system is the option to publish your video for a limited time (by default your video is published perpetually).
To make use of this option you can either set this option during creation or afterwards by navigating to the video you wish to publish for a limited time and editing its settings.
For new video’s the option is available in the ‘Details’ page which will open after you upload a new video or create a new recording, the option to set the scheduling is found at the bottom of the page:
Or when you need to edit an already existing video, follow the following steps:
- Navigate to the video.
- Scroll to the bottom of the video.
- Press the ‘actions’ menu to the right of the screen and choose ‘edit’.
- In the ‘Details’ tab, scroll to the bottom of the page and select ‘Specific Time Frame’ and enter your schedule.
- Press save when ready!
My name is Stefan and I am a new addition to the digital services group specifically hired as functional manager for Leiden University’s Kaltura and web-lectures systems working with Mads.
For now I will have to be inducted by Mads before I can pick up issues fully on my own but I am confident this will happen fairly quickly and my work this first week has included writing a new version of the Kaltura manual here on this website as well as translating that to English which has given me a good understanding of how this platform works.
My background related to this job is that I have worked as a systems and software support specialist (specializing in Apple products) for various companies also providing support for audio/video services and as a web-developer.
In my spare time I am an avid musician mostly playing classical piano music by Liszt, Chopin, Schubert and Beethoven but also creating my own dance music. I also like to play games both on (mostly RPG’s and strategy) and off the computer (snooker, pool, darts).
Of course I hope you won’t need my services much (because a stable system is a good system) but if you do I am happy to help!
