New MiVideo Player Launches in Canvas

Effective June 25, 2024, ITS Teaching and Learning will upgrade the default MiVideo media player in Canvas to the newest player by Kaltura. The June upgrade will be the first part of a two-part upgrade to the media player. The second phase, which will address existing embeds in Canvas, is planned for mid-August.

The new player is more modern and accessible, and offers a better overall user experience. (Thank you to the ITS Accessibility team for your extensive testing!)

This new player will appear in the media gallery and new content embeds in Canvas. Existing media embeds in Canvas content will continue to use the old player until the second phase of the upgrade is complete.
