    We have found that for courses with many mediasite activities, the course mod info cache takes an unreasonably long time to rebuild (~1 second per activity.) The result is very sluggish editing of course content.

    As a work around, one can rename the function mediasite_get_coursemodule_info to, e.g., mediasite_get_coursemodule_info_disabled.

    @Jeremy Bascom

    Check version.php, there should be an entry $plugin->version=2015012800; If it's not there, add it.

    I'd like to thank the developers for adding backup and restore to the latest version for 2.8. That's been a long-standing need for us. There's one issue though: the backup and restore process does not try to restore to the correct mediasite server. So mediasite content for server 1 (i.e. database id 1) always restores to server 1 on any moodle site. It wouldn't be hard to store the server url in the backup and at least try to restore to the same url, or to fail the restore. This is not generally a problem for same-site restores.

    Many of the CSS selectors in this module are not scoped correctly and affect other parts of moodle. For example, site-wide form labels will get a "float: left" which messes up some of the backup forms. We've added .path-mod-mediasite to the beginning of many of the selectors in styles.css to fix the problem.

    Just a note, we had to comment out some styles in the style.css file for this plugin because it was messing with the css elements of our site.

    Note that this plugin has some generic styles, such as:
    .fitemtitle label { float: left; white-space: nowrap; }
    .felement .fcheckbox label { float: left; }

    In the next version if you can prefix these styles with your plugin's unique plugin id that would be better.

    The latest plugin version (2016072200) breaks Behat/PHPunit test setup. The error is:

    !!! Exception - Notice: Undefined index: REQUEST_URI in [dirroot]/mod/mediasite/settings.php on line 11 !!!

    The patch was to add an isset($_SERVER["REQUEST_URI"]) check before using that variable.

    The error I reported above was because of a change introduced in Moodle 3.1.2, MDL-46514. It is now throwing PHP notices as fatal exceptions

    Hello everyone,

    I just wanted to report that it seems this module is no longer compatible with Moodle v3.2+ However if someone does find a way to get it to work please do share the knowledge.

    It looks like the plugin isn't compatible with an Oracle database backend; one of the columns in the "mediasite" table is named "mode" which is a reserved Oracle keyword :

    So when the plugin tries to do, for example:

    INSERT INTO m_mediasite(mode,name,description,openaspopup,course,siteid,resourcetype,resourceid,recorddateutc,presenters,tags,launchurl)
    VALUES ('PlayerOnly','Test','fred','1','2144',1,'Presentation','78859151dff54eaeaa483b7af91eb1d21d','1464238800','Default Presenter','', 'undefined')

    it errors out with the message "ORA-00928: missing SELECT keyword"

    But if you remove the "mode" column and value, it inserts successfully.

    Also, it appears that the description column is non-nullable on the table side, but this isn't checked on the UX side, so this would also cause errors.

    We're using version 2016072200, v7.0

    Has anyone gotten the content module to work with guest access? We're on Moodle 3.3+ (20170525).

    I would like to point out to all Mediasite users looking for support here that the Mediasite Community ( is active with a number of Moodle users, and questions can be directed there as well. If you are looking for technical support from Sonic Foundry, please visit

    This version still has an error on line 107 of lib.php in mediasite_get_coursemodule_info:

    $lti = $DB->get_record('mediasite_sites', array('id' => $mediasite->siteid), $fields = '*', $strictness = MUST_EXIST);

    I guess it's just a copy-paste mistake, but please change this to:

    $lti = $DB->get_record('mediasite_sites', array('id' => $mediasite->siteid));

    For some reason $mediasite->siteid often comes back with a value of -1 and the above throws a nasty exception preventing you from entering the course altogether.
