I'm trying to use Kaltura from our CU library to download a DVD for a class and then place it on my Canvas class. How is this done?
Hi Johanna Maes and Welcome to the Canvas Community!
There are a number of ways to add video content to your Canvas course, but there are technical limitations regarding the size of the file. The maximum upload size of a file into Canvas is 500MB. There are also course size limits that can be set by your Canvas Administrator.
I know that Kaltura usually provides an embed link so that you do not have to download the file and then upload it. You can simply link to it. Have you looked at that option?

Hello there, Johanna Maes...
I have been reviewing older questions here in the Canvas Community, and I stumbled upon your question. I wanted to check in with you because I noticed that we have not heard back from you since you first asked your question on October 2, 2018. It looks like Robbie Grant had some feedback for you a day later, and then he tried checking in with you again on March 19th. I would echo some of the challenges you may face with converting a DVD to a digital file. In addition, I imagine that the DVD is also copyrighted. So, if you are going to use it in an online course setting, you are going to need to obtain copyright permission from the publisher before you can put it online. For the time being, I am going to mark your question as "Assumed Answered" because we've not heard back from you and because there hasn't been any new activity in this topic for a few months. However, that won't prevent you or others from posting additional questions and/or comments below that are related to this topic. I hope that's alright with you, Johanna. Looking forward to hearing back from you soon.
