    Depending on the size of your video, it may take some time for Kaltura to convert it to mp3 or mp4, depending on whether it is an audio or video. Converted videos will display a thumbnail image within the video, while video still being converted will be blank. You can still embed the video if it is still being converted but you will not be able to play the video until the conversion is complete.

  11. The submitted Discussion post will be displayed
  12. You can edit your video discussion post, if the submission end date has not yet passed
