Organic Groups is a module that enables you to add group functionality to a Drupal site. You can set any content type to be a group, so that users and content can be associated with it, and also set a content type to be group content, that is be added to a group.
Kaltura CE comes with several solutions for Storing and Playing your Video out-of-the-box, but sometimes Kaltura CE Remote Storage doesn’t offer the exact solution to fit your requirements.
If you can’t find a suitable solution from the list of features that come with Kaltura CE, you can always rewrite and enhance the Remote Storage Profile.
Creating an AngularJS Kaltura Video Embed Directive
AngularJS directives allow you to extend the HTML vocabulary and write short HTML templates.
We wanted to create a directive that would enable us to embed a Kaltura video in our AngularJS apps easily.
If you’ve read our “Installing and Integrating Red5 with Kaltura CE5“ post, you have probably encountered several errors when starting or stopping the Red5 Server.
./red5: 14: .: Can't open /etc/rc.d/init.d/functions ./red5: line 30: success: command not found ./red5: line 30: failure: command not found
The above error messages occur because the Red5 init Script is written for CentOS and not for Ubuntu.
Within this blog post we will guide you step-by-step on How to install Red5 server and integrate it with Kaltura CE.
Installing and Integrating Red5 with Kaltura CE5 can be a difficult task and I hope that after this blog your mission will be completed.
Kaltura default partners and publishers
Within this blog post I will explain the purpose of the Special Reserved Publishers/Partners in Kaltura, such as Publisher ‘0’, ‘99’, and ‘-2’, but first lets understand more about the terminology for Users, Partners, Roles & Permissions.
Delete Kaltura Entries from S3 Bucket Automatically
When setting up a Kaltura cluster, you usually want to store the entries on a remote storage like an Amazon S3 bucket. The problem is that when deleting entries using the Kaltura KMC, they are not deleted from the bucket, which can cost you money.
We have previously written about using S3 with Kaltura, which included several fixes to the Kaltura database. To delete Kaltura Entries from S3 Bucket automatically, we need to perform several code and database fixes which are described below. Continue reading
Kaltura CE is the best open-source solution for Online Video Management, however building a working Kaltura CE environment is not an easy task.
Here at Panda-OS we have combined our tools, vision, and knowledge of Kaltura in order to quickly deploy, migrate, or rebuild a Kaltura CE environment.
We are excited to launch a new post series about the Panda Kaltura AWS cluster. Kaltura is an open source video platform loaded with features. The platform can be partitioned into multiple machines for scalability, performance and robustness. However, deploying, installing and scaling is not an easy task, and many changes and configurations have to be made manually.
Amazon AWS is a cloud computing platform launched in 2006. It includes dozens of services which integrate well with each other and enable a lot of flexibility. Services include CloudFront (content delivery network), S3 (object store), EBS (persistent storage), EC2 (computing) Load Balancing, Elastic IPs and more.
The Kaltura CE5 video server can be deployed as a stand alone server, but to serve many users a distributed setup is required. Setting up a Kaltura CE5 cluster on AWS also enables adding more servers when needed with no impact on availability.
At PandaOS we wrote a web interface for making such deployments automatic and easy with using Amazon Web Services. Below I describe the setup required on AWS to install a distributed Kaltura environment.
Before you start the installation, you need to create an AMI (Amazon image) of a machine with Kaltura installed on it. Then you can use that image to launch all your Kaltura instances.
