Wiltja is a media caching software developed to work with Keeping Culture KMS over poor quality networks. It dramatically decreases the bandwidth requirements, consequently improving usability and responsiveness of your Archive.
The software can be installed on a single computer for personal use or installed on a server and shared over the local area network with all computers on the network. Wiltja does require a reasonably reliable broadband Internet connection; some low bandwidth satellite connections may be inadequate.
Downloading the Wiltja software and manual
A copy of the Wiltja software and manual are available inside the ‘wiltja-setup’ directory of your Archive’s S3 backup. To access this directory, please read the Accessing your content on our S3 backup article.
With the release Keeping Culture KMS version 2.0 in November 2017, it is recommended that any existing Wiltja installations setup prior to 2018 be upgraded to the latest version of Wiltja software.
Support for pre-2018 installation of Wiltja will be phased out towards the end of 2018.
Instructions for upgrading existing Wiltja installations are available in the manual.
