Direct integration with Kaltura widgets and application requires web sites to implement the following functionalities:
- Construct Kaltura objects for session initialization using Kaltura API Client Libraries.
- Embed Kaltura Flash objects – Kaltura recommends the use of SWFObject 2 scripts for this purpose.
The following preparations are required in your web application environment
Prepare your environment for using Kaltura Client Libraries
Please download and extract Kaltura Client library at the programming language relevant to your web project. Clients downloads are available at the Downloads Page or under the project page of the specific Client Library. Make sure you extract Client library files into a location path which is accessible from your web application.
Prepare your environment for using SWFObject 2 Scripts
Kaltura recommends the use of Google’s SWFObject 2 scripts when dealing with Flash content. It makes developer's life easier by ignoring cross browser issues related to the classic Flash embed methods and adds extra features such as: Flash version detection and the option to use Adobe Express Install to download the latest Flash Player.
For the most current information on SWFObject 2, please refer to SWFObject Documentation Page.
- For using a SWFObject script directly from Google AJAX Library API, please look for the relevant URL at Google AJAX Library API documentation page.
- For using a local download of Google’s SWFObject 2 scripts please refer to SWFObject Download Page. Please make sure you are downloading and using SWFObject version 2 and not an earlier version.
