My Media - Global Navigation

My Media (or Kaltura) is a place on the Global Navigation where you can create, view, and edit your own videos.

My Media and Add New

The first time that you navigate to the My Media area, you will need to authorize it to connect with your account. This only occurs the first time.

On subsequent visits the My Media area will look something like this. If you have no videos uploaded or recorded then it will look like this. To add vides to the area you will want to click Add New. Once you have clicked Add New, you have two options: Media Upload which is utilized if you recorded the video in another software or Personal Capture.
