Kaltura plug-ins for Moodle 2.1 - 2.x and 3.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).

    I am a bit confused.

    I'm looking into replacing an in-house video solution with Kaltura CE.
    However, it would appear from the posts here that the Moodle integrations are not supported in Kaltura CE.

    Hmm does this mean that the description of this these plugins are inaccurate?
    '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.’

    Should it rather read?

    'Kaltura's Video Package for Moodle 2.x makes it easy to add the robust capabilities of Kaltura's Paid for using Kaltura's OnPrem solution video platform to any Moodle site.’

    I would be grateful for clarification of this, as it is a requirement of any solution that we put in place that
    - It tightly integrates with our VLE (Moodle 2.7)
    - It is easily maintainable

    Thanks in advance

    Hi Michael,

    I can confirm that the Moodle integrations work well (none-paid) in versions like CE5 and the previous version of the Moodle plugin. I have it up and running with RED5 without any problem on a 2.6. I'm not sure whether this is the case for the future since I believe that the new plugin uses the paid for KAF.

    The best question to ask would be whether there are any plugin versions for Moodle that continue to support the non KAF CE? or whether this plugin will only be supporting the paid for solution?

    It has not yet been verified to work with 2.8, but this is on our roadmap in the short-term, so stay tuned

    I wonder if you could please help me with the following question:

    The University of Dundee has a Kaltura license. I am the administrator of a Moodle platform within the University and I am trying to connect Moodle with Kaltura.

    The central team has provided me with a
    partner id and the admin secret number. However, they don't know what the kaf_uri value is.

    Do I need to open an specific TCP/IP port for Kaltura?

    I have access to the KMC in Kaltura and I have created a root category called Moodle, as stated in the documentation.

    Please let me know any other additional steps.

    Thank you very much.

    I'm trying to install this plugin (2.8 or 2.7 V) to moodle 2.8.3. This is the error I have received "Invalid structure of the ZIP package". Can someone help me?

    So I'm a Moodle administrator / developer for the University of Wisconsin - Madison. We're in the process of upgrading our sites to Moodle 2.8, and this plugin just doesn't work on Moodle 2.8, even though the plugins page says that the most recent version does.

    In looking through and debugging, it appears that the issue deals with the LTI api changing for Moodle 2.8 due to LTI 2 becoming available. The biggest thing that I've found is that the resource link id paramter is missing from the request as that's what the KAF sends back as an error.

    After attempting to add this back in my local code of your plugin, and then trying to launch I get Access Denied from the KAF. Are you guys working on this?

    And if not, or are very early in the process, how might I help speed this up?

    We are also having the same problem at the University of Portland as John Hoopes described. Getting a "Video is not available on this site" message when trying to use the Atto Kaltura Media embed button. Also, the Kaltura Media text filter does not work properly when attempting to copy/paste a video URL into the text editor. We are on Moodle 2.8. Was this plugin actually tested with 2.8?

    The plugin name is "Kaltura release 4.0.07 for Moodle 2.9 (2015091609)" but... it's works only for Kaltura version 4? Because I'm working with Kaltura CE 9.19 and I don't know if its works and if the release 4.0.07 it's about the plugin or about Kaltura.

    We are just enabling the Kaltura plugin at the University of Illinois. The one thing that I notice is that the plugin uses a separate module for the Kaltura Media Assignment. This is the way that assignments used to work in Moodle, but there have been updates since version 2.2. Are there plans to integrate the Kaltura Media Assignment as a submission type in the regular Moodle assignment module. This would make the Kaltura plugin work more in line with how other things work in Moodle.
