Kaltura is a media hosting platform dedicated to Enterprise and Education needs. You can connect your account to Wonda so you can either import your media (images, videos, 360 media and audios) from the Kaltura platform or upload media to Kaltura directly from Wonda.

Note that these features are only available for paid plans and need 4K support to be activated in your Kaltura account. Not sure it's enabled? Contact Kaltura Support.

How to set up the connection with Kaltura? (Hubs Admin only) 

First, please make sure you have the following roles: 

  • Hub Admin in Wonda

  • Kaltura KMC access to generate the App Token

1. Generating the Client and Server App Tokens from Kaltura

More information about this process is on Kaltura documentation here.

Requirement

  • You have to be the Admin or App Token manager of the Kaltura account

Process

  • On the Outline, go to Generate API Token / appToken/ appToken.add, then click "Try it out"

  • Don't modify the value of Global parameters

  • Deploy body : object then appToken: object

For Wonda synchronization, you will need to send 2 requests.

1. Fill in the following information:

  • Description: Describe the goal of the App Token as you would like

  • Expiry: Duration of the App Token validity (in seconds). Leave it empty to keep this app valid forever (but don't enter 0 as it will be not valid!)

  • hashType: SHA1 or SHA256 recommended

  • sessionDuration: Validity of the session. Leave it empty if you don't want to constrain the time for the users. The value will be equivalent to one day.

  • sessionType: pick the USER[0] value

  • sessionPrivilege:

    recommended: enableentitlement, privacycontext:[your privacy context], list:* this will allow you to see all your media and the media you have publishing rights to.

  • sessionUserID: Leave it empty

Click on the Send Request button above and make sure it sends a SUCCESS message.

Then, copy the whole content of the generated code part and save it for later (it will be used for the Client App Token on the Wonda side).

2. Modify the sessionPrivilege part with disableentitlement and send a second request.

Then again, copy the whole content of the generated code part and save it for later (it will be used for the Server App Token on the Wonda side).

2. Importing the Kaltura App token into Wonda


Once the two App Tokens have been generated from Kaltura (step 1 above), go to the Hub Settings in Wonda and select the "Integration" and Kaltura tab to fill in the App Token required information.

The first generated code goes to the Client App Token and the second one to the Server App Token.

As the last step, make sure you tick the right option depending on your Kaltura setup:
- Use the email as the user ID
- Use the email prefix as the user ID
- Use a custom id (in this case, please contact our support center for assistance)

How does a user access his Kaltura media in Wonda?

When the integration is done, no further action is required by the user. To be sure the integration has been correctly set, all users can view the information by going to the "User account"> Integration> choosing the right hub.


Now, each time you and all participants belonging to the Hub will open the Media Library to add a new media, you will get the possibility to choose “From Kaltura”.

Note: If you would like to use 360° media from Kaltura in Wonda, you need to tag them as “360” directly in Kaltura so they’re recognized as spherical media. More info is in this Kaltura support article. 

How to upload media from Wonda VR to my Kaltura account

If you upload media files into the ‘From Kaltura’ tab, they will be directly available in your Kaltura account as well.

  • A "360" tag is automatically added to Kaltura for 360 content 

  • Videos are transcoded in Dash and available for streaming on Kaltura servers 

About user account management

Whether Wonda users (hub participants) have a Kaltura account or not, they will be able to connect to Kaltura seamlessly.

If the Wonda account email is an existing Kaltura account (SSO login):

  • No new account will be created on Kaltura's end

  • Wonda users will see in their media library their existing Kaltura content and they will be able to upload media to Wonda 

If the Wonda VR account email does not match an existing Kaltura account:

  • A Kaltura account will be created automatically for Wonda users

  • This new user will be part of the Kaltura account but will not be logged in to the KMS

  • Wonda users will be able to upload their media to Kaltura from Wonda
