Downloading Videos From Kaltura

The easiest way to download content you've created in or uploaded to Kaltura is not through Moodle's My Media tab, but through MediaSpace, our Kaltura web site repository.

First, visit In the upper right corner, click "Guest" and then "Log In." Use your MHC credentials to log in.

Once you're logged in, choose "My Media" from the drop-down menu below your name in the upper-right corner. Scroll to find the media item you'd like to download. Select the small pencil icon next to that video to start editing.

Use that button, and save the resulting file to a location on your computer.

Locating Kaltura Capture Files On Your Computer

If you're recording with Kaltura Capture, the files are stored on your computer already! But they can take a little work to find. Follow these directions from our colleagues at the University of Wisconsin to find them!
