How do I find a video in My Media using a Canvas Page

This tutorial will show you how to locate a My Media video, if you have the video embedded in a Canvas Page, and you need to find that specific video in My Media.

Before you Begin:

This tutorial will show you how to locate a My Media video or audio file that has ALREADY been uploaded to My Media. Videos may have be added to your My Media account in multiple ways.
  • You may have uploaded a video to My Media at another time, for a different course or semester.
  • Your video may have been automatically uploaded using the Kaltura Capture tool. Here is a tutorial on creating a Kaltura Capture presentation.
  • A colleague may have uploaded a video and changed ownership of that video to you.
  • A colleague may have uploaded a video and added you as a Co-Editor or Co-Publisher.
