Release notes


Videofile is a Moodle 2.5+ resource plugin intended to provide teachers with easy handling of cross-browser compatible videos using Video.js ( In most cases it should be enough to add .mp4 video files which will then play in an html5 player on most browsers and in a flash player in older browsers.

Videofile and Video.js also supports WebVTT captions as well as a poster image that displays before the video is started.
