Closed, DeclinedPublic


Migrated from:


As a developer, I want to upgrade the Timed Media Handler extension, so I can integrate the Kaltura Player v2 on our sites.

Acceptance Criteria

In order to integratethe Kaltura Player v2 in current A/V viewers and inMedia Viewer, we need to make some joint improvements to theTimed Media Handler, in order to provide better performance, support more file formats and offer an improved audio-visual experience for our users.

  • Upgrade Timed Media Handler (specific tasks TBD), to support the new Kaltura Player v2
  • Confirm that it works well for playing audio and video,with inall current players, as well asMedia Viewer,with no glitches.


  • Specific tasks required to upgrade Timed Media Handler to support theKaltura v2 player will be added to this card shortly.
  • We are setting up phone calls and in-person meetings with Kaltura in mid-February and early March to help us.
  • We will coordinate this work with Michael Dale at Kaltura, along with his colleaguesItay Kinnrot and Asher Shiratzky.
  • In the first implementation, we will go for whichever solution seems more practical from a development and community maintenance perspective, then incrementally improve the quality and optionsover time, in consultation with our community.
  • See separate cards for Video support (see #162 ),Audio support (see #163 ) and Kaltura Playerintegration(see #164 ).

Change 182092 had a related patch set uploaded (by Paladox):
async with upstream Kaltura player MwEmbedSupport module 2.24

cc @TheDJ - should this be declined (since we are moving from Kaltura to VideoJS) or does the patch have short-term value?

@Tgr I'd say the short term risk does not outweigh the short term benefit. Long term, it should either be done (but is becoming increasingly complicate), or we should dedicate ourselves to an alternate playback library indeed.
