PoodLL Widget / Generico
Maintained by Picture of Vernon SpainVernon Spain
This is a Generico filter to add a YouTube video as a BACKGROUND to a Moodle Course. It allows a user to easily add the video and simple details to the course without blocking out the exiting resources.
Latest release:
13 fans
Moodle 3.7, 3.8, 3.9

This is the YouTube_Page_Background bundle for the Generico Filter

It allows a YouTube Video to be placed behind the course page to easily create stunning and dynamic backgrounds for your course. 

To install download the zip file and expand it. It contains a folder called Youtube_Page_background. Inside the folder is the template bundle, Youtube_Page_background.txt. 

Drag that file over the green bundle button on a blank Generico template settings page. The fields on the page should fill out. After you save the page, the template will be available from the Generico icon on the Atto html editor.

This works best with the Boost/Classic theme. Please lodge an issue if you wish another theme to be checked.

This is a quick introduction on YouTube.

    Thanks for good plugin. I like this.
    But I cannot set up this in Fordson.
    I'm using Fordson theme.
    (moodle 3.5+ 20180621 / Fordson v3.5 release 3 update 16 - 2018111600)
    Where do I put fordsonfix.css exactly?
    What should I do?
