This section provides the steps on how to get the Kaltura Partner ID and Admin secret ID and configure the Kaltura Video Content Management System integration, provided with HCL DX 9.5 CF19 and higher releases, to accelerate Digital Asset Management rich media integration to HCL Digital Experience site pages and content.

About this task

Kaltura is a video platform provider that helps with video creation, management, and collaboration. It provides an on-demand and live video software as a service (SaaS) solution. It also provides a platform for hosting videos and streaming videos. Integrating with Kaltura helps to link your web content with your video assets.

Kaltura video plugins enable content authors to easily share and deliver high-quality video content that displays on any device, anywhere, all within the Digital Asset Management environment.

Prerequisite

Configuring Kaltura integration, including enabling/disabling of the Kaltura plugin, is done by the Digital Asset Management Administrator.
