As a result of the Mediasite service migration last summer, the domain used to access Mediasite video presentations changed from kansasstate.mediasite.com to mediasite.k-state.edu. For the past year, viewers who used the old domain name were automatically redirected to the new one. After June 14, viewers who attempt to view Mediasite presentations using the old domain will no longer be redirected and will instead receive an error.
If your website contains old links or embeds to Mediasite video presentations, be sure to update your links and embed codes to reflect the current domain.
