Install kaltura without nginx

Hello All,
I updated kaltura from 12.2.0 to 12.3.0 with ssl, but videos don’t play via html5 player.
How can I install kaltura without nginx-vod.

Hi,

From player version 2.48 and forward, the default playback method is HLS [using HLS.JS] and therefore you need to either use Nginx with the vod module or a CDN capable of serving HLS manifests.

As an alternative, you can set disableHLSOnjs to true in the player’s UI vars and it will play progressive HTTP instead but I wouldn’t recommend it.
Any specific reason why you don’t want to use Nginx with the vod module?

Hi @jess

Thanks for your quick reply.
I installed kaltura with SSL. Is that a problem?

Hi @eemirtekinn,

No. Kaltura can and should work just fine over SSL. Ideally, you’ll want a cluster with an LB doing SSL offloading to two or more front nodes for redundancy purposes.
Nginx does not have to work over SSL but can do so and the installation scripts prompt about that as well. If I were you though, I’d set 2 or more Nginx instances behind an LB doing SSL offloading, same as with the front servers.

When I click play video, I get ssl error.
it did work before.

Did you configure Nginx with SSL? Seems from the console errors that you did not.
You can re-run kaltura-nginx-config.sh and when prompted with:
"Would you like to configure Nginx with SSL?"
Select ‘Y’ and input your cert and key.

Yes I configured nginx with ssl and I have tried aganin now.
The problem still continue

[root@cdn ~]# kaltura-nginx-config.sh
kaltura-nginx-1.8.1-9.x86_64
Kaltura API host [cdn.yasar.edu.tr]:

Nginx server name [cdn.yasar.edu.tr]:

Nginx port to listen on [88]:
Would you like to configure Nginx with SSL?[Y/n]Y
Nginx SSL port to listen on [8443]:
Nginx SSL cert:  /etc/ssl/certs/yasar.pem
Nginx SSL key:  /etc/ssl/certs/yasar.key
Note: Forwarding request to 'systemctl enable kaltura-nginx.service'.
Redirecting to /bin/systemctl reload  kaltura-nginx.service

First of all, does this work for you?
# curl -I -v https://cdn.yasar.edu.tr:8443
it does not work for me but that may be because cdn.yasar.edu.tr on port 8443 [Nginx SSL] is only available from your internal network. If it does work, then you just need to update kaltura.delivery_profile accordingly so that all records that have cdn.yasar.edu.tr:88 become cdn.yasar.edu.tr:8443.

If it does NOT work then you need to understand why… start by looking at the curl output and then the Nginx error log.

Hi @jess

it dosen’t work in internal network.
how can I edit “kaltura.delivery_profile accordingly”
is it on mysql?

Thanks in advance

Before you update any DB records, this needs to work correctly.
Make sure you have /etc/nginx/conf.d/ssl.conf and that it looks correct and try commenting:

        server {
                listen 88;
                server_name cdn.yasar.edu.tr;
                include /etc/nginx/conf.d/kaltura.conf;
        
        }

in /etc/nginx/nginx.conf
and make sure you have:

include /etc/nginx/conf.d/ssl.conf; 

then reload kaltura-nginx with:
# service kaltura-nginx reload
and make sure you’re getting HTTP 200 when making the request to https://cdn.yasar.edu.tr:8443
then you can log in to MySQL with the kaltura user and update the records in the delivery_profile table.

Jess,

ssl.conf

Right. So try commenting out:

        server {
                listen 88;
                server_name cdn.yasar.edu.tr;
                include /etc/nginx/conf.d/kaltura.conf;

	}

reload the server and see if a request to https://cdn.yasar.edu.tr:8443 returns correctly.

I have a new error

Good, that’s progress.
Edit /etc/nginx/conf.d/ssl.conf and add:
add_header Access-Control-Allow-Origin cdn.yasar.edu.tr;
inside the ‘server’ block, then reload kaltura-nginx and try again.

I added, but it doesn’t work

[root@cdn ~]# cat /etc/nginx/conf.d/ssl.conf
# HTTPS server
#

    listen     8443   ssl;
    server_name cdn.yasar.edu.tr;

    ssl_prefer_server_ciphers   on;

    include /etc/nginx/conf.d/kaltura.conf;
}
[root@cdn ~]#

Make sure your restarted Nginx and also, in
add /opt/kaltura/app/configurations/apache/kaltura.conf:

Header set Access-Control-Allow-Origin "*"

Right after SetEnvIf X-Forwarded-Proto https HTTPS=on and reload Apache as well.

still it dosen’t work

[root@cdn conf.d]# cat /opt/kaltura/app/configurations/apache/kaltura.conf
<VirtualHost *:443>
	# for SSL offloading support, if LB has X_FORWARDED_PROTO set to 'https', set HTTPS to 'on'

	ErrorLog "/opt/kaltura/log/kaltura_apache_errors.log"

And also, again, does:
