How do I use the new 1.2 beta feature that embeds audio? Do I just use html embed tags that point to the file on a server location? Are the audio files qt or mp3? Sorry if I'm a bit confused...
I embedded an mp3 file by simply adding it as a resource to a course. It works just fine and dandy, and proves that those moodle developers can read my mind over the continents...I was just working out a simple way for our music staff to upload mp3 files that our pupils have recoreded. This is the simplest method yet.
Your questions i tried to answer for my own 15 min ago:
- mp3 and swf (flash) very easy, congratulations to Martin
- You have to enable the mediaplugin in the admin/filter menue
- You need a html link ()
- You copy this link in a RTF textfield (Forum, ... what ever you like)
- thats all, you get a link and 2 buttons ....
- no wav oder midi possible (Martin please .....)
- I had no sucess to link to a mp3 or swf in f.e. moodledata/11/...
I tried this with ressource....
(The only way to prevent forreigners to link to my files)
But instead a large "Icon, display" right accross the page. I wonder if there is any way to change this?
The "Nice small Icon" you get in forums like
You can also use it in wikki text format.
The "big one" is presented as a resorce upload.
Hope I'm correct and this is what you meant ?
Using it as a link works fine. (I am using the Beta version.)
How do I use it in wikki format? . The security of just using a link to a web page, specialy in tests is not very good. An uploaded link would be better.
Never used the wiki-format.
About the uploaded link: I haven't found an elegant way to create such a link. When I rightmouseclick on the file in the moodle-filebrowser and ask for the properties, I can copy/paste the path, but that can hardly be the most efficient way...
Umm, something is wrong. I can't find this browse feature in the beta 1.2 or in Janne's RTE test site.
The insert image is working fine, but when I click "insert web link", all I get it is as in the attached image.
I feel I must have missed something obvious or misunderstood something basic...
Please help, TIA, Tim.
Thanks for your feedback Koen. Maybe the problem lies at my end, because it doesn't work for me on this site either. I get the same screen as I showed in my previous post. I am using Windows XP and IE6.
Can anyone else shed any more light on this?
I have the same trouble than timothy.
If i try to insert a link in my site settings box, i obtain the good popup windows (image 1) but if i try to insert a link in a forum for example, i obtain a small popup windows without any way to browse the files on the site (image 2).
Any ideas ?
How do I use it in wikki format ?
I made an example in section 1 in the teachers Playground.
Look for Testing mp3 in wikki format.
I agree with Koen, had to do it by copy and paste, not so elegant ...
When I add an mp3 embedded in a resource or as a resource on its own, I lose part of the the file - it is truncated to 76Kb. My original file was encoded from wav using LAME and is 106 Kb. ? Am I doing something wrong?
