9 fans

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).

    Hi Jess, are there any plans to continue the v3 api (open source) version of the plugin by a member of the team for Moodle so that the CE version could still be used for free?

    Hi Andrew,

    Pardon the delay in response, I managed to miss this one before.
    There are no plans to further develop an official Kaltura Moodle plugin that does not rely on the Kaltura Application Framework [KAF].
    However, if someone from the community wishes to take ownership on that front, I will be happy to provide support on forum.kaltura.org.

    Attempting to install and I am getting this message 'The plugin ZIP package must contain just one directory, named to match the plugin name. The file provided is not a valid plugin ZIP package.' Did I miss something, using Moodle 3.1?

    Thanks Jess, I'll take a look since updates will fail due to changes with Moodle code (at the moment) rather than Kaltura (and I'm more familiar with Moodle code). Has anyone managed to get the v3 version of the plugin working with Moodle 3.1?

    Hi Jess, I have a large part of the Moodle Kaltura plugin already working for the old v3 plugin on Moodle 31 but my attempts at using github to share the code failed. I couldn't find the github fork for the v3 plugin version on moodle.org. I thought DBezemer/KaMoodle would be the latest but there were code changes that didn't match my version downloaded here from Moodle. If you can point me in the direction of the fork for the version on this site, I'll try again at submitting my code changes on the github.

    Hi Andrew,

    The GitHub repo is here: https://github.com/kaltura/moodle_plugin/, for 3.1 the branch is MOODLE_31_STABLE which is also set as the default branch at the moment.

    Also, Andrew, for code contributions, please make a pull request to the MOODLE_31_DEV branch, for 3.2 it is MOODLE_32_DEV.

    Thanks Jess, my apologies if I'm reading this incorrectly but I'm actually looking for the non KAF, Kaltura release 3.1.02 (RL: (2014010901) plugin branch. I can only see 3.0-4.0.09 tags which look like plugins to help upgrade to v4. I'm looking to use the free CE edition of Moodle.

    Hi Andrew,
    I'm afraid we no longer maintain non KAF based versions of the Moodle plugin. You're more than welcome to start such a FOSS project yourself of coursesmile

    Thanks Jess, I've started a FOSS project here https://github.com/acheckley/kaltura-moodle_plugin-v3/tree/MOODLE_31 and will take it as far as I can go but possibly will need other contributers to assist.

    Hi Andrew,
    Well done! If you have any questions about using the Kaltura API while working on this, feel free to post at forum.kaltura.org. I'll also refer any community members who are interested to your repo.

    Can I use KAF with Kaltura CE ?
    I use Kaltura Video Platform - Community Edition 12.5.0 & Moodle3.2

    Hi @syusan
    KAF is a licensed product and you can't have it in conjunction with CE.

    Here's the documentation:
    In short - you need to extract the zip at the root of your moodle installation, and go to the notifications page in admin.
