Kaltura Media Storage Policy

Kaltura's media storage policy dictates that videos and audio recordings uploaded to or recorded within Kaltura that have not been accessed for playback within the last four years will be removed from Kaltura.

What does this mean?

Any videos not played within the last four years will be slated for removal. These media removals will occur on an ongoing, daily basis so that a video last played on November 3, 2016 will be removed on November 3, 2020. You will receive automated courtesy notifications listing the title and ID of media items that are slated for removal one week before those items are removed from the Kaltura system.

How do I avoid losing my media items?

We encourage instructors to download any videos or audio recordings they wish to keep to a remote storage device before their media items' slated removal date. Note that if a video or audio recording has been played at all over the past four years—even for two seconds—it will be retained.

Students, please be aware of this storage policy and make sure to retrieve any materials needed for a career or graduate school portfolio. For information on downloading videos and audio recordings, see How to download Kaltura media items that you already own. To help you plan ahead, you can also check the creation date of your media at any time by using your My Media page in Canvas.

If you have any questions or concerns about this policy, please contact FSU ODL Technical Support.
