Using the oEmbed protocol http://oembed.com/ hyperlinks pointing to supported sites will be substituted with an embedded version.
N.B. You may need to disable YouTube and Vimeo in the Admin->Site Administration->Appearance->Media Embedding
This helps send students to videos on external sites but without leaving Moodle and being distracted by other content.
As of 3.2, the media sites that are supported are the ones defined at http://oembed.com/#section7 (JSON: http://oembed.com/providers.json). You can also modify or add provider info locally to your site.
See the "README.txt" file for more information on managing providers.
Pre-3.2, the supported sites are:
- YouTube *
- Vimeo *
- Ted *
- Poll Everywhere
- Microsoft Mix
