Our monetization platform features a fully developed integration with the Kaltura platform.
Connecting your InPlayer and Kaltura accounts
Connecting your InPlayer and Kaltura accounts is extremely simple. All you have to do before you start, is get the Partner Id, Uiconfig Id and Entry Id from the Kaltura video you wish to use.
Once you have these, you just create a video asset in the InPlayer Dashboard and fill out all the asset info.
Read on for a step by step guide.
Locating the Partner Id, Uiconfig Id and Entry Id for the Kaltura video
To locate your Partner Id, Uiconfig Id and Entry Id, log in to your Kaltura account and follow the steps below.
- Open the video you wish to use.
- Click on the button on the left side.
- On the right side of the new page, you will see the Embed Code section. Scroll almost to the end of the text box and you will find the part where the Partner Id, Uiconfig Id and Entry Id values are located.
The Partner Id is the number after”wid”. Note that you only need the number, without the underscore before it. Like so:
The Uiconfig Id is the number after “uiconf_id”:
The Entry Id is the value after “entry_id”. Note that you only need the code, without the quotation marks.
Once you have located the values, you can create your asset. Keep the Kaltura window open since you will need to copy/paste the values into the asset.
Creating an Asset
To create an asset in the Dashboard, follow the few steps below:
- Log in to your InPlayer Merchant account and proceed to the Assets tab.
- Click on the +Add New button.
- Select the Video asset type.
- Click on Kaltura.
This will open the asset creation window where you will be able to modify the look and feel of your asset, add pricing and integrate the selected video from your Kaltura account.
Before continuing forward, make sure to give your new asset a Name in the top-left corner.
Modifying the asset
The asset creation window contains four sections.
In the Description section, you can give your asset a title, description, preview image and change the text on the Buy button. We suggest advertising the price directly on the buy button wherever possible.
In the price options section, you can add and remove multiple prices and select from a range of currencies.
The third section is where you will paste the Partner Id, Uiconfig Id and Entry Id, each it’s respective field.
This field is not used for the Kaltura integration and can be skipped altogether.
Embedding the asset
Once you have created your Kaltura asset, it’s time to embed it on your website and start selling.
To get the asset embed code, click on the action button of the asset you’ve just created and locate the button in the top right-hand corner.
You will see the paywall show up on your website and you are will be ready to start your digital monetization journey.
