HWDMediaShare provides an integration with Kaltura. Kaltura is an open source video platform that provides hosted video services and support, as well as free open-source community supported solutions, for video processing and publishing.

This documentation is written for Joomla 3, and refers to HWDMediaShare version 2.

Integration features

The Kaltura integration provides the following features:

  • Allows you and your website users to upload directly to your Kaltura account.
  • Supports accounts hosted at Kaltura.com, as well as Kaltura CE editions hosted on your own servers.
  • Enabled you to synchronize HWDMediaShare with existing media already in your Kaltura account.
  • Enables you to select your own custom Kaltura players, allowing you to monitize your video content.

Getting started

You'll need Joomla 3, HWDMediaShare 2 and a working Kaltura account. The integration is provided through plugins in the Developer Addons, so you'll need a Developer subscription.

Signup for a Kaltura account

You need a Kaltura account to get started, so head over there now and signup. If you're just interested in trying this feature there is no fee or risk; they offer a free trial.

You can also use your own Kaltura CE edition. Our plugin allows you to specify your own Kaltura endpoint.
