Planet eStream iFrame Filter

The Planet eStream iFrame Filter converts Planet eStream content added with the Planet eStream Moodle Repository Plugin from a flash player format to an iFrame format.

The conversion takes place for any new Planet eStream items added using the Repository Plugin and also for all the existing Planet eStream items already added to your Moodle system using the Repository Plugin.

Using iFrames, Planet eStream system can detect the best video delivery method and use either a flash player or a HTML5 player, as appropriate. This enables the content to be viewed on a wider range of platforms including Android and IOS devices.

Please note – This plugin is only available to organisations with a separate current Planet eStream platform contract.

    The github source for this plugin appears to be out of date and prevents other eStream plugins being installed when added from git. Please could the github repo be updated to reflect the latest versions. Thank you.
