Kaltura Mediaspace

Before you start

To use the Kaltura MediaSpace integration successfully, please make sure that you have already connected your InPlayer and Kaltura accounts.

If you haven’t done this and need help in doing so, make sure to read our guide.

Kaltura MediaSpace setup

First, go into your Kaltura MediaSpace admin panel.

You can access the admin panel by going to your MediaSpace portal and typing /admin at the end of the URL.

Ex. https://myportal.mediaspace.kaltura.com/admin

Next, from the left-hand menu, scroll down select the Inplayer module.

If you don’t have this module available, make sure to reach out to your contact at Kaltura, who can enable this for you.

Once in the Inplayer module, set up the following:

Set the enabled option to Yes.

In the MerchantUuid field, enter your InPlayer UUID. To get your InPlayer UUID, go to the details page of your InPlayer account and copy it from there.

In the MonetizeContent field, select the minimal role a Kaltura account should have in order for it to be able to set up monetisation for videos. Or you can choose a specific user(s) or user group(s) that will be able to do that.

In the ApiURL field, select Production to use the live InPlayer platform environment, or Staging to use the demo environment.

Finally, click the Save button at the bottom.

With this, your Kaltura MediaSpace setup is ready.

Creating the InPlayer asset

For this part, check out our asset creation guides for the type of asset you want to create.

Linking the asset with a Kaltura MediaSpace video

The last thing to do is to connect the InPlayer asset with the video you want to monetize in Kaltura MediaSpace.

To do this, log into your Mediaspace portal (not your Kaltura Management Console) with your admin account.

Select the video you want to monetize, and from the ACTIONS drop-down menu, select EDIT.

Go to the InPlayer Monetization tab, and in the Asset ID field, enter the ID of your InPlayer asset.

To find the Asset ID, go to the Assets tab of your InPlayer Dashboard.

The Asset ID for your asset will be listed in the asset list.
Finally, click Save.

In order to avoid users having to login in both Kaltura and InPlayer, make sure to list the MediaSpace videos/channels as public/open.

Monetizing channels

To monetize a channel in MediaSpace, you would need to bundle the channel videos in a package within the InPlayer dashboard.

You can find more information on creating InPlayer packages here.

Viewer experience

A viewer visits your MediaSpace and navigates to a video that is protected with the InPlayer paywall.

Once there, they click on the BUY button.

They log into their account (or sign up for a new one).

They choose the pass they wish to purchase and click NEXT.

They are forwarded to the final payment screen. If they have a voucher, they will be able to enter it at this point.

They enter their card information and complete the purchase by clicking on PAY.

The paywall disappears, and they are presented with the content.

They receive an email with the payment confirmation.

This concludes our guide.

Connecting InPlayer and Kaltura

First, log into your InPlayer Dashboard.

Go to Settings, and then to the Integrations tab.

Click on Kaltura.

Enter the Administrator Secret from your Kaltura account, and click Save.

How to find the Administrator Secret

Log into your Kaltura account.

Go to Settings (), and then to the Integration tab.

You will find the Administrator Secret there.

Once you connect your InPlayer and Kaltura accounts, the next step is to protect your Kaltura content by creating an asset.

You can learn how to do that here.

Or, if you wish to use Kaltura Mediaspace, read our guide on that here.
