how to play .wmv and .avi files on Moodle
Thanks for your reply,
Actually we don't want users to download the files into their systems, so we want to play within their Browser, so please share me if is there any other alternative ways
The only way to ensure all your users can play video through their browser is to have the video in a format that's supported by browsers. What this means right now is that you'll have to convert your videos to h264/mp4. Moodle uses videojs which supports embedding these videos in an html5 player.
As a general rule, using anything other than MP4 for videos always creates a problem as not every browser supports every codec, As suggested, the MP4 format is universal, it's simple quick and clean. To convert videos to MP4, download and install Handbrake, a free converter, copy all your wmv, avi, mov, and other video files to a single folder and convert the whole lot at once to MP4 or M4V. Simple.
