Kaltura plug-ins for Moodle 2.1 - 2.x

Kaltura's Video Package for Moodle 2.x makes it easy to add the robust capabilities of Kaltura's open
source online video platform to any Moodle site. The package was developed specifically for Moodle
and integrates with other features and modules, such as resources and activities, so that users can
upload and embed media easily.

The package adds the following features for all users:

* My Media: users’ personal media gallery, for uploading, viewing, managing, and sharing media

* Create screen recordings and use them in the Kaltura activities

* Integration as an external repository with the file picker accessible from the text editor: embed your media or media you have access to, anywhere you can author text

In addition, Teachers and Admins have the following features available:

* Video Resource activity: Easily add video content to your course as a specialized resource

* Video Presentation activity: Create a synchronized view of a Document and a Video

* Video Assignment activity: Allows students to submit videos as an assignment submission

* View engagement reports for videos used on your course


Version information:

Please take note of the version of Moodle you have and the version of the plug-in you are installing. The Download page states which version of Moodle the version of the plug-in is for.

Version information example: Kaltura release 3.0.96 (RL:

3.0.96 is the version of the plug-in that Kaltura has release. It does not correspond to any Moodle version number and it should be referenced when contacting Kaltura support.

RL: is our internal version. The first two points (2.5) correspond to the version of Moodle that it has been tested with (Moodle 2.5.x).

    Hello Andrew, that message appears because the repository plug-ins attempts to create a Metadata profile on the Kaltura account but your account hasn't bee configured (on the Kaltura end) to allow that operation.

    You should contact Kaltura support and let them know of the error message. In the earlier days of the plug-in, there were a lot of users receiving this message. So Kaltura support should be familiar with what needs to be done to your Kaltura account.

    Hi Akinsaya Delamarre. Thank you for your reply. I'm currently testing out the CE 5 version. I've worked out how to add meta-data and enable via the 'Moodle Repository Profile' in the KMC (publisher) but couldn't find a list of fields and data types. Do you know if this is freely available? Thanks, Andrew

    Hello Andrew. The Kaltura repository plug-in has a file "xsd_schema.php" where the schema is defined. You can create the profile manually. However the plug-in should have created one automatically (if the account has it enabled).

    Hi Akinsaya, thanks for the info. I now have it all working on the desktop (including recording with a webcam without any errors) but I'm having a problem with iOS. Would I be correct in thinking that the uploader for the video assignment is Flash based and therefore not compatible with an iPad? If so, is there a way of using the Moodle repository to upload video assignments instead?

    Hi Akinsaya, I'm looking at integrating the KSR and read your post regarding:

    The widget and its settings are not part of the on-prem package by default. The following are missed and should be added:

    ksr_id = Kaltura
    ksr_site =
    ksr_key = "MCwCFF6Dzysua7GrBD2nhZHVKh83dIepAhQeBA6RhicNXOPKsRMV2/RCoU0ulg=="

    The following should be updated from SVN on the flash folders:

    I've updated the ksr/v1.0.32 folder but I'm not sure where to find and add the Local.ini information. Would this work on CE 5? I could only see a Local.ini on CE 6. Thanks, Andrew

    Hello Andrew,

    Unfortunately I'm not experienced with CE setups. As I tested with a development account from Kaltura.

    There are some users who have commented on this plug-in page that have made some progress with CE setups. Otherwise, I would try to contact Kaltura support or a specialized CE forum to get tips from other users.

    Hi Akinsaya,

    I have described the problem that we are having with our Moodle and Kaltura CE in my posts earlier (last October). I revisited the issue and found out that the plugin throws the INVALID KS error when it tries to connect our Kaltura server. What could cause this problem?

    Moodle 2.5.1
    Kaltura Release 3.1.01
    Kaltura CE 4

    Hello Ricky,

    Invalid KS could mean quite a few different things, but basically it means that there was an error calling the login API method.

    You should search through the messages for this plug-in as there are users who have ran into problems with the CE version in the past. There might be something in there that can shed some light on your issue.

    I've updated the Kaltura plugins to release 3.1.02 for Moodle 2.4, 2.5 and 2.6. See release notes for details.

    Hi Ricky, I had a similar error which I solved by updating the Moodle and Kaltura server times/dates which were no longer in sync.

    I've temporarily taken down the 2.6 release due to an error in the build. I will re-upload the release soon.

    Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Hi, I have tried to install the 2.6 plugin by clicking the install now button and following the steps. But all I get is the following error message - "There is a request to install an add-on from the Moodle plugins directory on this site. Unfortunately the request is not valid and so the add-on cannot be installed." What am I dong wrong? I am using 2.6

    @Mark, as this is a package you cannot install it from directly. Hopefully the maintainer will split it up in the various components so this becomes possible.

    @Ricky, make sure the times are aligned on both Moodle and Kaltura, additionally CE4 is very old, and CE5 and CE6 both work flawlessly with the plugin.

    The latest version of Kaltura is now also available as easy to use RPM packages, and I believe there will be an upgrade procedure released by one of the community members next month.

    I can confirm that CE5 is working fine.
