April 26, 2024  / Digital Learning 

Introducing the all-new Kaltura video player!

Kaltura's new video player offers both improved performance and cutting-edge user experience. The new interface has all the controls expected from a modern video player with enhanced capabilities to drive engagement, including accessibility and localization.

Included with this update are several useful and intuitive player controls:

  • Play/Pause Button
  • Skipping both forwards and backwards (10 Seconds)
  • Variable Quality Selections
  • Playback Speed Adjustments
  • Picture in Picture
  • Audio and Subtitles Tracks
  • Volume Controls

How do I update to the new Kaltura player for my Canvas courses?

  • Simply do nothing. The update will take place automatically; therefore, no action is needed to use the new player in your courses

Wait, but what about my current Kaltura videos?

  • Not to worry, all your current Kaltura videos will be updated to the new player, automatically.
