RT Media galleries and uploader

Hey there. I am not sure if this is the right place for this but I am not sure if it is a plugin error or theme error. I have a buddypress corporate child theme activated but am not using buddypress. I am using rtmedia free to display my work. It is my understanding that having these 2 shortcodes will provide an uploader that displays media in a gallery with the same context and context_id.

[rtmedia_uploader global="false" context="Gallery Test" context_id="1" media_type="all"]

[rtmedia_gallery global="false" context="Gallery Test" context_id="1" media_type="all"]

All of this works fine on the page that both these codes are generated on. But If I generate the same exact gallery code on another page the gallery view says, "Oops, there is no media available for your request!". But then if I insert the uploader on the page it displays the media. My question is do I have to have an uploader on the page to display the media?
