Media Player Moodle 3.1.0 (Build 2016033101)

Release notes

The Media Player Module for Moodle 1.9 was originally Designed and developed by Matt Bury

© Matt Bury 2009 onwards

Redrawn for Moodle 2 by Valery Fremaux (

This version is a preliminary publication after formal review. This is yet a beta version where we tried to rearchitecture main features. Documentation writing and review is in progress. There are advanced features that are not yet fully tested such as simple dealing with streamers or pseudo-streaming. A further package may clean the "bad ideas" options when we can finish the complete qualification.

Our final goal is to provide an economic minimal viable way for small institutions to diffuse a reasonable set of videos with a very simple as possible, lightweight and costless solution.

Do not be to greedy anyway : video and live media are very complex and heavy technologies that fully justify the "cost of service" of major providers such as Kaltura, Livemedia or other professional providers. This plugin has limited goals and no service garantees as being free development initiative. It will probably be in "on progress" status driven by our internal needs and challenges.
