Kaltura: Enable 3rd-Party Cookies

This document demonstrates how to allow 3rd-party cookies in a variety of browsers. You need to enable these cookies in order to access Kaltura videos.

You may see the following error while trying to access Kaltura via your Canvas course site: 

"Your browser is blocking third-party cookies which are required to view and manage videos in Kaltura..."

You need to enable third-party cookies to use Kaltura. This is because Kaltura needs to communicate with Canvas to verify who you are and where you want to store your videos. There are instructions below to enable third-party cookies just for a specific site if you want to enable them just for Kaltura.
