Kaltura is wonderful, not just the market leader, but only one of it’s kind for any project of scale.
It is very active too, a lot of updates and a lot of community action.
However, a lot of action is fueled by large corporates and ventures or social projects backed by big money. But Kaltura is currently the only platform capable of bringing a more grassroot level impact in video consumption, which is somehow not being addressed properly.
Self financed and smaller projects need smaller or less formal development partners and consulting firms like myself and others here in on the forum who are not in position to take in projects on scale a dedicated Kaltura team can but still have been involved with Kaltura long enough to lend a hand to a struggling agency working to get off the ground and to the market with small modifications and integrations.And given a feasible option, we will be able do more here to see more and more Kaltura deployments.
For now, I notice some tinkerers who are working on providing online training and are drawn to the massive appeal of Kaltura. My fear is that absence of a regular marketplace will push them into hands of fake experts and eventually Kaltura fever will wear off them.
I am sure there are many other regulars here who will be happy to get involved on 2.5K to 25K range of projects and a reliable base of developers to fuel projects of this budget will lead to Kaltura adoption on a grander scale.
Your feedback and inputs, even if it pricks my dream bubble, is most welcome.
