Isn't this part of #165 ? Or are we planning on implementing video without kaltura first?

Hi Gilles, we may want to start the Media Viewer integration with the current version of Kaltura player, which is known to work. This is why I kept the two tasks separate. But we can discuss this in our Feb. 19 introductory meeting with the Kaltura team.
