Allow Kaltura and other video platforms to be embeded into Presentation module

Currently, only selected YouTube and Vimeo videos are allowed as embeds to Presentations. Would there be other supported video platforms, such as Kaltura to be added as a video embed?

Also, another question is for video uploads - what are the size limits? and formats supported?

Hi robinleung,

Youtube provides an API that H5P uses for its videos. Most video hosting sites gives us the URL for the player which H5Ps cannot use , in the case of Vimeo Pro (and above if I;m not mistaken) provides the source URL. So if Kaltura can also provide the source URL it can also be used in H5Ps.

The size limit is dependent on your server settings. In the case of H5P.org it is limited to 16MB, while in H5P.com it's 2GB. Formats are mp4 and webm.

Hi BV,

Thanks for this! Very helpful. What do you mean the source URL? Kaltura is an hosted app, so i imagine the URL for each institution will be different.

Hi robinleung,

I'm not sure but most likely it will be different for each institution. Most video hosting site gives the URL for the video player, in this page you would usually see the video, other links and depending on the site advertisements. The video source URL is where the actual video is located in the hosting servers. You can check with Kaltura if they provide this and how to retrieve it. It usually ends with .mp4, .webm depending on the video format.
