No, embedded videos from 3rd party sites like youtube or linked videos from elsewhere are not downloaded in the app. they are just played.
If you want users to be able to download any media in the course onto the Moodle Mobile App for offline access, they you need to upload the files into Moodle, adding the as resources or into pages or other content.
I have one doubt . Khan Academy uploads videos on Youtube but that videos are downloadable from its app(khan Academy Mobile App) . Can similar feature be implemented in moodle Mobile App.? as videos take lot of space so hosting takes lot of money and thats why youtube is the only option to upload videos.
this will be nice feature.
I have Created an issue in the tracker... MOBILE-2183 start watching and Vote if you feel same.
Ive been following this thread and wondered if anybody could shed some light on the following for me - is it possible to allow students to download the videos while on mobile but prevent them from sharing? So basically its a paid for course and i would like to give the students the ability to watch the videos while offline. But i obviously dont want them to distribute the videos.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
when a video is downloaded it is stored in the user's device. iOS is more restrictive regarding file system access, but in Android the users can access any of the downloaded files so you can't prevent them to share them.
The only solution I can think of would be to encrypt the videos when they're stored, and decrypt them when they need to be played. However, that solution would be quite complex and it would slow down the download and play of the videos. Also, since our code is open source, any advanced user could easily decrypt the video themselves.
