Issue

How do I transfer or share media in Canvas or MiVideo MediaSpace?

Resolution

The Collaboration tab on the Edit Media page allows media owners to transfer or share media ownership. Transferring or sharing media ownership is useful when someone uploads on behalf of someone else, or wants to share their media with other users.

Notes:

  • To edit a media item you have to be the media owner or co-editor of the content
  • The editing tabs may vary depending on your role
  • To edit the media file (trim, chop, splice, copy, and add hotspots and Interactive Video Quizzes) see the Video Editor articles

Roles

  • Media owner: Owns the entry
  • Co-Editor: Can change media settings and metadata, but NOT collaboration settings. Co-editors cannot publish media. To access media you are a co-editor of, select Media I can edit from any Filters button
  • Co-Publisher: Can publish the media in any destination they have access to. Co-publishers cannot edit media. To access media you are a co-editor of, select Media I can publish from any Filters button
  • Co-Viewers: Can watch videos shared with them from their My Media only. Co-viewers cannot publish or edit media.

Important Note

  • Owners and collaborators must have an account. If you are unable to find the person to add as owner or collaborator, it may be because they do not yet have an account.
    • MediaSpace accounts are created on login
    • Canvas accounts are created clicking My Media or Media Gallery in any course
