The previously announced decommissioning of RU-Stream will be extended to May 16, 2022 (originally March 1) to align with the end of the Spring Semester. Migration of content from RU-Stream (Kaltura in Blackboard & Sakai) to Rutgers Mediaspace (Kaltura in Canvas) was completed on December 29, 2021.
A review of Kaltura analytics for RU-Stream continues to show substantial activity. The extension will allow website authors and course instructors additional time to update their embed codes and share links. There is significant streaming of RU-Stream content within Rutgers Canvas as a consequence of course instructors using embed codes, rather than using the Kaltura integration in Canvas.
To help video owners identify content hosted within RU-Stream, the video player has been updated to include a title bar with notice and call-to-action buttons at the end of the video.
If you have not already done so, please update your website and course content with the same video hosted on Rutgers MediaSpace and integrated in Canvas. Please reference these support articles:
- Kaltura – MediaSpace Overview
- Kaltura – Personal Capture
- Kaltura – How do I re-upload media recorded with Kaltura Capture? (Review the last FAQ to re-associated Kaltura Capture to Kaltura associated with Canvas/Rutgers Mediaspace.)

For Rutgers faculty and staff who have shared links and embedded content from RU-Stream, RU-Stream will be available for view-only. RU-Stream, embedded content, and shared links will be inaccessible after May 16, 2022.
