Drupal Brightcove


Drupal has to offer many functionalities ranging from advanced menu management to user management. With these functionalities, it becomes easier for the users to create a simple, yet advanced website, blog, social networking page etc. Brightcove Dynamic Ingest module provides a form to upload video directly to Brightcove bucket instead of Drupal file system. It is also possible to examine our general scoring values, which rate the software all round quality and performance. Drupal got a 9.1 score, while Brightcove has a score of 8.9. Likewise, you can compare their general user satisfaction rating: 97% (Drupal) against 94% (Brightcove).


Drupal Brightcove Video Connector allows you to manage Brightcove Video Cloud videos and players within Drupal, and easily embed videos in Drupal pages. Note that this is for Drupal 8. For Drupal 7, see Drupal 7 instructions.

Drupal installation is a complicated process that very easily goes wrong. Make sure your content is backed up before proceeding.

Connect to the Brightcove Account

  1. To connect your Brightcove account, navigate to the Brightcove API page by clicking on Configuration, then scrolling down to the Brightcove API Account option under Media. This will take you to the Brightcove API client page. To add a new Brightcove API client, click Add Brightcove API Client.
  2. The Label can be anything, but using the same name as the account name on Brightcove will make it easier to identify.
  3. To get client ID and client secret, you will have to register an application. In Brightcove Studio, navigate to API Authentication and click on Add New Application.
  4. Fill in name and short description.
  5. Select an account. Pictured below are all required permissions.
  6. Hit save.
  7. Client ID and Client Secret appear. Be sure to copy and save Client Secret to a secure location. You will not be able to access it again.
  8. To find account ID, look in the top left corner of your Brightcove Studio dashboard.
  9. Fill in all IDs and Keys and select Default player.
  10. Click Save. The API client should now appear in the list.


Initially, when you navigate to the New Content page and click Brightcove Videos, there won't be any, though the option to add a video will be there. That's because first, you need to sync the data. After the initial sync, Drupal's chron keeps everything up to date. For manual synchronization, click on the Reports button at the top, then click Brightcove Status Overview.

On the Brightcove Status Overview page, hit Sync all.

Drupal Brightcove Access

Navigate to the Brightcove video page again, and your videos should be available.

Configuring Permissions

You can now view and post videos, but permissions must be set if non-admin users are to interact with the videos. To set these permissions up, first navigate to the permissions page by clicking on People and then Permissions.

Scroll down to find the Brightcove permissions. Enable and disable according to your needs. Brightcove permissions are automatically set to admin-only, so if you want others to view videos, you must grant those permissions.

Now you can move on to content management or embedding content.

Kaltura is a New York-based software company founded in 2006.[6] Kaltura operates in four major markets: Cloud TV (that is, OTT) for operators and media companies, online video platform (OVP) offered mostly to media companies and brands looking to distribute content or monetize it, Education Video Platform (EdVP) offered to educational institutions, and Enterprise Video Platform (EVP) for collaboration, communications and marketing.


Early history[edit]

Kaltura was founded in the fall of 2006 and was launched at the TechCrunch40 industry event in San Francisco on September 18, 2007, and won the People's Choice award based on a vote of the conference's attendees.[7] At that time, the company had 20 employees, and had received $2.1 million in funding from business angels and Californian VC fund Avalon Ventures.[7]

On December 21, 2007 Kaltura won the People's Choice award (over 250,000 users participated in voting) in the Video Sharing category for the Mashable Open Web Awards.[8] Also in 2007, Kaltura began a partnership with the New York Public Library, whose team was headed by Joshua Greenberg. In 2008, Kaltura was selected as one of the 'Global 250 Winners' by AlwaysOn.[9] Kaltura CEO and cofounder Ron Yekutiel was photographed for the article 'The Suit, Vers. 3.0' in Esquire's July 2008 edition.[10]

In January 2008, the Wikimedia Foundation and Kaltura announced that they had begun a collaboration aimed at bringing rich-media collaboration to Wikipedia and other wiki websites.[11] The technology behind this project is a form of video-wiki software (of open source purport) that was integrated into the MediaWiki platform as an extension, allowing users to add collaborative video players that enable all users to add and edit images, sounds, diagrams, animations and movies in the same manner as they do today with text.[12][13]

Kaltura was a sponsor of the Wikimania 2008 event, where it announced that it is sponsoring Michael Dale, an open source video developer, to support the further development of a 100% open source video editing solution integrated into MediaWiki.[14] Kaltura is also a founder of the Open Video Alliance, a group of organizations, academics, artists and entrepreneurs, geared towards promoting open standards for video on the web.[15][16]

Recent history[edit]

In July 2011, Kaltura Blackboard Inc. and Kaltura announced a partnership to integrate Kaltura's media solution in Blackboard Learn (TM).[17]

In May 2014 Kaltura purchased Tvinci for its over-the-top (OTT) TV service.[18] In August 2016, Kaltura announced that it had raised $50 million from Goldman Sachs.[19] Also in 2016, Kaltura partnered with Inception, 24i Media, Encompass and Harmonic to showcase OTT experiences.[20] In 2017 a collaboration with a cloud based Unified Communications solution nominated from Gartner Inc. as Cool Vendor in Unified Communications, 2017[21][22]was announced.[23][24] In December 2017, Kaltura had 450 employees.[25] In 2019 Kaltura crossed $100 million in annual recurring revenues (ARR).[26]

In 2015, Kaltura had been supposedly planning an IPO, which by September 2020 had not happened. Co-founder Shay David, openly stated in 2017, that Kaltura had turned down a $500 million offer to acquire the company and that an IPO would only be possible when the financial data support an IPO at a valuation of close to $1 billion.[27]

In April 2019 Kaltura announced its intention to develop Cloud TV with Dativa through a dedicated data lake.[28][29]

In early 2020 Kaltura announced its acquisition of Newrow, a platform for collaborative online meetings.[30] In which they provide an internal portal for managing video content to over 600 educational institutions including Harvard, Princeton, and Stanford. Allowing them to reach more than six million students in North America.[27]
