I'm having problems using the Moodle Media button to insert SWF movies into forum posts. I create an SWF via camtasia, then upload the SWF file into the forum post. Moodle's filters generate the proper OBJECT embedding HTML, but I get MOVIE NOT LOADED. I'm the administrator with god powers, so it's not a trusted content thing... I think...
I can use the Moodle Media button perfectly in regular resource and assignment posts.. just something wierd about forum posts.
For some reason, Moodle treats Moodle Media uploads as a downloadable attachment.
If I extract the data attribute from the OBJECT tag, it looks like this:
..and this plays inline flash SWF movies fine. I can simply paste this url into the address bar and the browser will full screen play the movie. However, forum posts have a data attribute that looks like this:
The problem is that PLUGINFILE.PHP is telling the browser that the SWF file is to be downloaded.... if I just put that URL into the browser address bar it won't play it, it will ask to be downloaded. So I have to figure out why PLUGINFILE.PHP wants to serve the media as a download.
Is there hack or setting to prevent Moodle Media Button inserted SWF's from being force downloaded?
