Video Hosting Options at Rutgers

Overview

Instead of uploading your videos directly to a Joomla! website, we recommend that you upload your video to a dedicated video hosting service such as Kaltura, Rutgers YouTube Channel or the SAS Youtube Channel.  Once it has been uploaded, the video can be displayed within an article or module using the All Videos plugin.

Accessibility Requirements

To comply with accessibility standards, make sure all videos are closed-captioned before you add them to your website. Captioning is typically handled by the service providing video hosting.

School of Arts and Sciences YouTube Channel

Contact the SAS Communications Office to have your video uploaded to the SAS YouTube Channel:

Kaltura (Canvas/Mediaspace)

You can upload videos to Kaltura, which is part of Canvas. Any videos uploaded to Kaltura will give you the option to add closed captioning automatically; you can then edit the captions for accuracy. Rutgers faculty or staff can request a Kaltura account.

Get started with Kaltura.

Rutgers YouTube Channel

The Rutgers YouTube channel is managed by the Rutgers iTV Studio.  Submit your video:
