Kaltura CMS

The following explains how to provide video data via the Kaltura CMS platform.

Required for Import:

Before integrating a Kaltura client IRIS.TV should receive:

  1. Kaltura Syndication Feed formatted to Yahoo of Google format:
    1. The KMC Feed will be used to import the client's video metadata

Kaltura Syndication Feed

The Kaltura Syndication Feed is created through the "Syndication" section in the KMC. The Syndication section can be found within "Content".

A client can give IRIS.TV an existing Yahoo or Google formatted feed. If one doesn't exist, they can generate one from the "Create New Feed" button on the far right of the page.

If creating a new feed, On the Add Video Feed pop-up they should:

  1. Name the feed
  2. Select All Content or "Only Content from this Playlist" is they want IRIS.TV recommendations to only come from a specific playlist
  3. Select the "Google" or "Yahoo!" feed types
  4. Add a "Landing Page". "kaltura.com" will work is the client does want to use their own site URL

Content Flavor and Playback are not required parameters for IRIS.TV.
