Re: Playing video inside Moodle 2.0

Thanks Justin.

I think that I'll ask my students to make sure that they download quicktime until we get a plugin that plays all m4v files, since I have 200+ videos on my courses. It would be a big job converting all of them!  

Thanks for all your help anyway.

Hi Anthony,

There's probably no need to recode the videos. Just try renaming the file extensions, e.g. change myvideo.m4v to myvideo.mp4. It should work without any problems.

Hi Anthony,

If you do decide to convert the videos, check out Any Video Converter. It is available for any version of Windows as well as having a Mac version. Version 5 was just realeased a few days ago. It comes in a free version that will let you setup a bunch of videos at one time for un-attended conversion. It will let you convert to almost any format for phones, tablets, and computers.

Hope this helps,
