YouTube creates a media item in your library based on a video hosted on YouTube. This feature allows you to sort and organize course media in a single location, post to your course with the Kaltura tools, and have YouTube videos play via the Kaltura Player which can remove some ads and provide Kaltura analytics for the item. Please note that the original video source video remains on YouTube and plays through Kaltura. If it is removed from YouTube by the owner, the Kaltura item will no longer work.
