Publishing your media allows others to access your media items. The location that you choose to publish will determine who will be able to view the media and how they will access it. There are two types of places where you can publish your media –channels and galleries. A Channel is a collection of media items for a subset of users (or all authenticated users). A Gallery the other hand, is a collection of content that is more much more broadly permissioned (either all authenticated users, or everyone) and is organized into predefined subcategories rather than user definable groupings. The table below illustrates what level of access will be given for each publishing point.
*In addition to being authenticated, the user must be authorized to view the channel
When publishing to more than one place, the permissions for your media item are determined by the least restrictive publishing point. For example, if you published to a Private Channel and the gallery "Unlisted," then an unauthenticated user who obtains a direct link to your item will be able to access it even though this would not be true if it was published to the private channel alone.
Media published to galleries will be available to either the entire world or everyone at MSU–depending on the gallery chosen. Because of these broad permissions, the option to publish to a gallery is restricted to Faculty/Staff. In addition to making content accessible through the Public gallery or the MSU gallery, Faculty/Staff can also publish to the "MSU Unlisted" gallery. This will place the media in a gallery that is not publicly accessible, but it will still allow the content to be shared using links. Media can be published to “MSU Unlisted” and another gallery, however, the more public gallery settings will override the privacy settings the settings of "MSU Unlisted."
With the upgrade to MediaSpace 5, Kaltura has added an Unlisted option. The Unlisted option does not publish the media to a publicly accessible gallery, however it allows you to share media, using the links provided. Media content appearing in Unlisted cannot be published to a gallery. Additionally, students also have the ability to publish to Unlisted.
Users with Student access can publish to channels to share their content with others.
If you would like to get a link, you can simply copy either the 'Link to Media Page.' Please note that you'll need to have published your item to share via link.
