Kaltura (Groups) - Deleting Group Recordings
The University of Wisconsin System uses Kaltura's "Groups" feature to handle shared management of video content. Users who are members of a Kaltura Group often ask how they can delete videos owned by the group, because Kaltura's normal "Delete" process doesn't work for Group-owned videos. This guide explains how to get rid of unwanted Kaltura Group videos.
Once this is done, the video will still exist in Kaltura, but only the new owner (and Co-Editors or Co-Publishers) will see the video in their "My Media" lists.1) Access Kaltura through Canvas MyMedia (Canvas > Account > My Media) or through Mediaspace (https://mediaspace.wisconsin.edu/ > log in > My Media).2) Locate the specific video you'd like to change ownership of, and click the pencil-shaped Edit icon next to the video's name to get to the Edit Media page.3) On the Edit Media page, go to Collaboration > Change Media Owner, and enter the name, email address, or SIS ID of the new media owner. For more information, see Kaltura's Change Owner guide.4) (optional) If there are still multiple users who do want access to the video, the new video owner can add the other users as Co-Editors and Co-Publishers of the video, which will grant many of the same rights as ownership.
Delete the Video
1) Follow the "Change Ownership" steps above. Make sure that you are the new owner.2) Go to the Kaltura My Media page through Canvas (Canvas > Account > My Media) or through Mediaspace (https://mediaspace.wisconsin.edu/ > log in > My Media).3) On the My Media page, check the box next to the name of the video, and then open the Actions dropdown and click Delete.
The video will be deleted from Kaltura for all users.
