About Kaltura

Kaltura is an open source video streaming service.

About Kaltura_Fu

Kaltura_Fu is a gem that wraps the Kaltura-Ruby API wrapper and also adds some convenience methods for Rails' ActionView. The intent of this library is to provide a far easier means to communicate with your Kaltura server. It's just too much of a pain to update simple things like the metadata fields with the default kaltura-ruby client.


Install the gem with the command:

# Gemfile
gem "kaltura_fu"


rails g kaltura_fu:install

This will install the kaltura.yml file into your application's config directory and the kaltura_upload.js into the application's public/javascripts directory.


The Kaltura_Fu library is being tested against the following version of Ruby:

  • 1.8.7(MRI)
  • 1.8.7(EE)
  • 1.9.2(YARV)
  • Rubinius

In order to test this gem (for local development), you'll need to have access to a Kaltura server. I use a local installation of KalturaCE. You'll have to add a config file under spec/config/kaltura.yml and add in a small video file named video.flv in the same folder. Since Kaltura provides no testing in kaltura-ruby, I tend to use this library as a test suite for fixes for that library as well.
