We're trying to get Poodll working with our Moodle 3.0.2+ and the newest PoodLL Filter and Poodle Anyhwere for Atto and everything is still a bit wonky. Audio recording works on desktop browsers out of the box (except for Firefox, which needs flash in "unprotected mode") but on mobile devices recorded files upload without a file extension (e.g. "upfile_121212."), which obviously causes all sorts of problems (also they still seem to be AAC MPEG 4).
The video recorder works on mobile devices (probably because they directly output mp4) but on desktop we experienced some strange behaviour and I wanted to ask how this might happen: when opening the video recorder, there is a red cross in the lower left corner and the video controls are deactivated/greyed out. After some googling around I learned that this means that PoodLL can't connect to a Red5 Server. As soon as I type in the defaults (tokyo.poodll.com) the controls light up and I can record. It then says "cannot convert locally" or something like that and I guess that this has to do with some less than optimal FFMPEG config on our end (it's a unix server). My questions:
1) Could the missing file name extension be related to our FFMPEG not working correctly? (the file not being MPEG Layer 3 obviously is)
2) Due to privacy concerns from our computing center we can't have any external servers listed in the application configuration. Will the controls in the video recorder work when our FFMPEG is responding correctly (but i guess the flash plugin doesn't check that beforehand)?. If we use local conversion, we shouldn't need to enter a Red5 server to click on "record", right?
The whiteboard and screenshot are working fine on our test system right now and we're not using anything else.
It would be great if someone could help us out here!
Thanks for the great plugin and best wishes from Germany,
