Kaltura - Advanced Video Embed Options

Kaltura is the video portal for instructors, students, and staff across the University of Wisconsin System. Kaltura is fully integrated with Canvas, so it's easy for users to embed their Kaltura videos into Canvas courses. If video owners want more flexibility than Kaltura's default embed options offer, Kaltura's "Embed Settings" opens up more options.

Note: These features will be enabled on 05/20/2019.
