Hi,

is there anyone can describe the procedure to share videos from Kaltura to facebook ?

By setting Distributors Profile ?

By installing Plugin ?

I've installed Kaltura CE V4.0 - Generic Installation Package.

Thanks.

Bye

Hi Andrea,

I'm afraid Distribution plugin will not necessarily be a good solution here.
Publishing to Facebook requires user-authentication, which currently isn't possible through the Distribution panel.
Distribution profiles are based on the assumption there can be a two-way communication via drop-folders or APIs with simple authentication.

Can you provide more details? e.g.

  • Would you like your users to publish to their Facebook wall?
  • Would you like to have your videos automatically published on your Facebook wall?
  • Would you like to have a Facebook App for this? Page? Group?

Is there a trick to getting the Kaltura player and FB to play nicely? Alternatively, there a FB player I need to use to show the video. If so, do I get the stream from Kaltura to play in that player?
