Creating a New Kaltura Playlist

Note: Playlists can only be created with videos that have already been uploaded to “My Media” (there is no step for uploading new videos when creating a playlist).

First, you'll need to add the Media Gallery block to your Moodle course. Then, click the link to go to the Media Gallery.

On the page that opens, click the following "Channel Actions" icon on the right of the page:
