kaltura logoIf you are running a WordPress vodcast site, or you frequently post video content on your blog, wouldn’t it be great if you can upload, import, edit and create mash up of video/audio/photos right within your WordPress admin area?

Kaltura is the first open source video platform for online video management, creation, interaction and collaboration. Recently, they released the interactive video plugin for WordPress blog that allows you to add interactive video capabilities to your blog. With the plugin, you can upload/ record/import videos directly to your post, edit and remix content with an online video editor, enable video responses, manage and track your video content.

After you have downloaded and activated the plugin, you will need to sign up with Kaltura for a Partner ID before you can start using it. This partner ID is a license key given by Kaltura to allow you to upload and import media from Kaltura’s partner (Youtube, Jamendo, Flickr etc) and stream media from Kaltura host.

At the Write section where you compose your blog post, you will now find a new video icon that allows you to insert interactive videos to your post.

On the pop up window, you will find plenty of tools that allow you to upload or import videos, audio or photos into your blog

When you are previewing your post on the browser, you will find a Remix button on the Kaltura video. This is where you can edit and create mashup for your video.

Even though it is Web-based, there is no short of video editing tools. You can easily edit, cut, insert content, create mashup and even add transition effects to your video.

Conclusion

The Kaltura’s Interactive Video plugin is the most comprehensive video management platform for WordPress blog. It has a full-feature video editing capability and a well-integrated infrastructure that make it very easy for anyone to use. Not to mention that it partners with some of the greatest sites in the Internet (such as Youtube and Flickr) to give you access to millions of multimedia instantly. If this is not the best, then I don’t know what else is.

Other than WordPress, Kaltura also supports wiki, drupal, most of the php-based and Ruby-based site. In addition, anyone are allowed to stream up to 3GB content from Kaltura at no additional cost at all.

    Hi!

    Maybe I skipped something, but in my installation Youtube does not appear to be an option from where to pull videos.

    It's something changed? The post is quite old, that's why I'm asking.

    Thanks!

    Thank you for the sensible critique. Me & my neighbour were preparing to do some research about that. We got a good book on that matter from our local library and most books where not as influensive as your information. I am very glad to see such information which I was searching for a long time.This made very glad Smile

    I wish they had provided something for feed readers too because the video player does not load or even show a link in the feeds. They should improve upon this.
