Description geniice 2010-06-14 22:00:31 UTC
Adds a link to Kaltura and the Kaltura logo to every video when played. Adding links to a third party commercial website to every video on wikipedia goes against generally accepted principles of wikimedia projects. The copyright status of the logo is also unclear.

FYI: this was first commented here:

Comment 2 Helder 2012-11-09 02:25:05 UTC
Raising priority since it is now deployed on WMF wikis.

Comment 3 Rob Lanphier 2012-11-09 18:05:06 UTC
I'm looking into what we can do now.
Comment 4 Ruud Koot 2012-12-11 18:13:11 UTC
According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Gadget/proposals/Archive_3#Remove_MwEmbed this link can be "easily disabled for 3rd party sites via a configuration option".
Comment 5 Yair Rand 2013-01-23 07:20:06 UTC
...

If nobody knows what the configuration option is, maybe it should just be hidden with CSS until someone figures out how to get rid of it entirely?
Comment 6 Ruud Koot 2013-02-21 10:05:28 UTC
Hidden through CSS on en.wp.
Comment 7 Michael Dale 2013-05-10 15:29:48 UTC
Note The link was change in code to link to html5video.org a while back ( no longer linking to kaltura.com )

Lowering priority as we don't link to Kaltura anymore.

Wondering if anything is left to do here, or whether this ticket can be fixed?

html5video.org is just another Kaltura site so we face exactly the same problem
Comment 10 Helder 2013-05-14 11:30:59 UTC
Per comment 9.
Comment 11 Rob Lanphier 2013-12-18 19:36:59 UTC
Sorry for the delay in reporting on this.  We've been discussing matters with Kaltura.  Fabrice has been leading this conversation, so I'll turn it over to him.
Comment 12 Fabrice Florin 2013-12-18 19:37:31 UTC
Thanks, RobLa. We plan to revisit this issue shortly when we get ready to integrate Kaltura's new player with Media Viewer in coming weeks. Will discuss this with community members to make sure we address issues raised in this thread.

Fabrice: Has this happened or is this on the list for the next weeks? 
And is this really high priority?
Comment 14 Yair Rand 2014-08-19 18:43:25 UTC
The file MwEmbedModules / EmbedPlayer / EmbedPlayer.config.php should have line 78 changed from
           "EmbedPlayer.KalturaAttribution" => true,
to 
           "EmbedPlayer.KalturaAttribution" => false,

Comment 15 Gerrit Notification Bot 2014-10-06 22:10:23 UTC
Change 165119 had a related patch set uploaded by Kaldari:
Remove link to Kaltura from video player

https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/165119
Comment 16 Gerrit Notification Bot 2014-10-07 20:32:08 UTC
Change 165119 abandoned by Kaldari:
Remove link to Kaltura from video player

Reason:
Apparently the proper way to attribute Kaltura hasn't been settled, so abandoning for now.

Comment 17 Ryan Kaldari 2014-10-07 20:34:18 UTC
This is going to be addressed by the next version of the player, but isn't going to be changed in the current implementation.

> This is going to be addressed by the next version of the player

Where's "the next version of the player" defined/explained? When is that going to happen? Is there a plan for a "next version" or is that wishful thinking?
