Video Management

Managing a media library, even a large one, should be simple and straightforward. Kaltura lets you manage all your video captures and media in one central repository, accessed centrally through our management console. The intuitive interface gives you all the tools you need for video management, including tools to organize your content and metadata, easily search media, edit, moderate, create playlists, and much more.

Video Management for All Video Captures and Uploads

Manage uploaded videos, audio, and images.

Categories, Playlists and Channel Building

Categories provide a logical structure for your site and assist with video management. You can use categories, along with metadata and filters, to create manually or dynamically generated playlists (aka Channels). Playlists can be created manually or be based on a specific topic (for instance tropical fish) or criteria, and can be automatically ordered by most viewed videos, highest rated videos, alphabetically, and more.

Video Management with Metadata

Leverage metadata fields to tag, manage, search and expose content. Populate out-of-the-box fields, or create your own custom metadata scheme.

Video Platform - Video Trimming and Thumbnails

Time-Based Data and Cue Points

Add cue points to your video files to enable time-based functionality such as chaptering, display of related files at specific points, and timed advertisements.

Video Captured Content Trimming and Clipping

Trim or create multiple clips from a single video. Each clip gets its own embed code and metadata, while remaining associated to the original video. Trimming and clipping tools are available both to administrators and site users.

Thumbnail Creation

Generate thumbnails from videos or upload external images. Capture, crop and adjust to get the best result.

Search Across Videos

Use categories, tags, and any of your custom metadata fields to locate any file.

In Video Search

Our platform supports “in-video search”, allowing you (and your audience) to search. You can search for a specific phrase within a library of videos and find the exact point in the video where the phrase appears using the time-based caption files.  

Subtitles Help Video Management

Upload multiple caption files (SRT, XML) and transcripts (TXT), or reference an external link. Viewers can then select and toggle between different language captions. Captions and transcripts are fully searchable as a metadata field. You can also automate the creation of subtitles and transcripts through our partners in Kaltura Exchange.

Content Packages

Create “content packages”, including a set of video transcodes, multiple thumbnails in different sizes, metadata, subtitles, scheduling data, and more. Packages allows you to treat your videos in a holistic way, store related assets such as “behind the scenes” “trailers” “poster images” and even legal approvals in a single organized and searchable source. Packages also allow you to define a subset of data to be sent to distribution partners via the Kaltura Distribution Module.

Moderation of Captured Video and Editorial Workflows

Review content before it is published to eliminate spam and abusive content in UGC portals. Implement complex editorial workflows for your various editorial team roles.

Content Entitlement

Segregate content in your application based on your various user groups and audiences. Create content channels to be accessed only by certain users, and allow other content items available to all. Manage groups and users on your own identity server, such as LDAP and Shibboleth, and seamlessly integrate with Kaltura.

Kaltura API for Video Management
