VIUTube Service Interruption

VIUTube experienced an issue with new media uploads over the weekend. Media uploaded on Sunday March 21st and the morning of Monday March 22nd may not appear in My Media. Our service provider has investigated and applied a fix to restore service. They are continuing to monitor the system in case of further issues.

New media uploads should be accessible in My Media. As a precaution when uploading media content, please use the Go to Media link and copy your media URL before navigating away. As long as you have the URL for your media, you should be able to view and share as normal. If you uploaded media during that time and do not have the media URL, we recommend re-uploading your media.

If you have any questions, please contact

Maintenance is scheduled from 6:00 am to 7:30 am and from 5:00 pm to 6:30 pm. For more information please see

Users who are accessing our systems from home may experience challenges logging in if attempting to sign in during the maintenance window.

VIUTube Media Unavailable

At this time, you may not be able to view media that is usually available on VIUTube. This is a result of a challenge with the recent update which our service vendor, Kaltura, is still working to fix. Videos which are embedded in VIULearn or on external websites should play as expected, though links may not function.

If you are looking for a specific media file, please send an email to with as much detail as possible and we will provide you with a direct link to view your media file or an embed code so you can add that media to your course or website.

We apologize for the inconvenience.
