Video Hosting Options at Rutgers

Video Hosting at Rutgers

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.

Videos and Accessibility

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.

SAS Video Policies, Practice, and Assistance


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.  To submit a video, use the YouTube Upload Request Form.

Note that the Rutgers YouTube channel charges a fee for generating captions for videos. 

For more information, questions and concerns, contact the Rutgers iTV Studio.
