Media Mill and Media Magnet have served us well, but it is time to move on. Kaltura MediaSpace is the replacement. It was soft-launched in summer 2018 and was fully launched in Fall 2018.

Key Transition Milestones

Dec 28, 2018: Media Mill & Media Magnet are frozen

As of Friday, December 28, 2018, Media Mill and Media Magnet are now read-only. As such, you will no longer be able to upload new content to Media Mill or Media Magnet.

Jan 2019: Files moved to Kaltura MediaSpace

Starting in early January 2019, your original uploaded media in Media Mill will be automatically copied to Kaltura MediaSpace and available for use from that system. Original video and audio files will be deleted from Media Mill after that occurs. Existing links and video derivatives in Media Mill and Media Magnet will remain available for playback through December 2020.

Dec 2020: Media Mill and Media Magnet shut down permanently

In advance of this date, there will be further communications to users of Media Mill and Media Magnet.

What is Kaltura?

Kaltura is a media management platform that has been in use at the University of Minnesota in our Learning Management Systems (LMS), Moodle and later Canvas, since 2012.

Kaltura MediaSpace is a way to use Kaltura content outside of the LMS. It acts as a third way to work with video for teaching and learning purposes.
