Connecting to Kaltura


When streaming to Kaltura using a Wowza ClearCaster, the RTMP URL has to be reformatted to meet Kaltura's URI format. By default, in the standard format, the Wowza ClearCaster will strip everything after the "?".  In order to for the Wowza ClearCaster to successfully parse the URI, we will need to configure the connection details within a JSON format like below. 

How to format the connection information

  • Example Kaltura entry point:
    Server URL:
Stream Key:
  • Use this JSON format when adding a new broadcast in ClearCaster Universal Manager:
Server URL:

Stream Key: 
1_7nXXXsk7_1 (stays the same)

See the example broadcast setup below:
