Unlisted Sharing

Unlisted sharing allows you to publicly share media without it having to be published to a channel or category as well as that the video will not be ‘crawled’ by search engines such as Google making it invisible to the web and impossible to find without using ‘hacking’ tools.

In other words, only people with the direct link to your video will have access to the media and the media does not require authentication to be played.

Whilst this is a great feature we must also point you to the risks of using such a feature as a link can always be shared outside of your purview and start to have a life of its own.

For this reason we must refer to our terms and conditions clause as well as the below text which is part of the disclaimer when you add new videos to the platform before we proceed to the ‘how to’:

Students and employees of Leiden University may upload videos on Kaltura. Only upload videos that you made or that you are authorized to use. You must own the copyright to your video or hold permissions from the copyright holders.

It is permitted to use Kaltura to show licensed videos in the classroom during a lecture or tutorial, when security is set to show the video only in the classroom (i.e. video is set to ‘private’ \ ‘not published’).

It is not allowed to upload medical video recordings on Kaltura without the written consent of the patients. Uploading video recordings of minors is only permitted with prior written consent of the minor’s parents or carers.

If you believe your copyright-protected work was posted on Kaltura without authorization, you can send an e-mail message to: beheer@library.leidenuniv.nl

Leiden University expressly disclaims all liability for damages in any way resulting from or in connection with the use of videos on Kaltura.
