The Presentations2Go controller for Kaltura knows some slight differences.


  1. Manual and automatic publish will upload the content to the FTP or sFTP server of Kaltura.
  2. Streaming will initiate the RTMP streaming functions of vMix. You need to setup (and save) a RMPT address in vMix.
  3. Publishing and Streaming to Presentations2Go open video platform are disabled
  4. Scheduling is possible but cannot be synced
  5. The settings section has some different entries as described below.


Settings


Offline mode


The controller checks for updates and metadata settings each time you start the application. In case you have a very unstable Internet this can cause a delay when starting the application. Check the Offline mode to prevent Presentations 2Go controller to connect to the Internet at next application restart.
