    Many thanks for sharing the Eduplayer plugin with the Moodle community. I have installed and tested the plugin and things like pretty good. There are a few minor details which would help if you could tidy them up. First, the validation warnings:

    Maturity information ($module->maturity) not found in version.php
    Release name ($module->release) not found in version.php
    Release notes not found (searched for files README, README.*)

    I am not sure why the README.txt file was not being found as it is in the zip file so I wouldn't worry about that but if you could add the maturity and release variables to the version.php file that would help. You can check out http://docs.moodle.org/dev/version.php if you have questions about those.

    The module installed just fine in Moodle 2.3. Have you done any testing for Moodle 2.4 and/or 2.5. I suspect that they would work fine with those versions. If you could test them and make sure then you could mark the version as being available for Moodle 2.3, 2.4, and 2.5.

    I also encourage maintainers to provide the source control, tracker, and documentation URLs. If you could add those in that will encourage folks to get involved and provide a way for them to give you feedback if they run into any issues.

    I tried uploading a sample mp4 file and the sound played but I did not see the video. Play an flv video worked as expected. I tried it under FF (using Ubuntu). Overall it installs just fine and seems to work. Once you resolve these issues then I can give it another quick look and get it approved. For now, I'm going to mark the plugin as needing a little more work. Thanks for your patience with the approval process. Please do not hesitate to let me know if there is anything I can do to be supportive of your efforts.

    Peace - Anthony

    Hello Anthony, thanks for your feedback and suggestions.
    As soon devs will complete the steps you suggests we'are going to make a new submission.
    For the mp4 we'll check on FF/ubuntu as well.

    p.s. - I tried the latest version and was still unable to see the video of an mp4 player using FF but I did hear sound and see the media player - just not the video images.

    Hi Anthony,

    you are unable to see the video of an mp4 player using FF and Ubuntu because FF doesn't support mp4 format because it is not a royality free format. Please see
    https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/HTML/Supported_media_formats

    where is explained that:

    To avoid patent issues, support for MPEG 4, H.264, MP3 and AAC is not built directly into Firefox. Instead it relies on support from the OS or hardware. Firefox supports these formats on the following platforms:

    Platform Firefox version
    Windows 7+ 21.0
    Windows Vista 22.0
    Android 20.0
    Firefox OS 15.0
    OS X 10.7 22.0

    Or see https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/930770

    So the issue you noticed is browser related, not Eduplayer related.
    I hope this can solve the question and that allows you to approve the plugin.
    Thank you
    Regards
    Antonio

    As a remark:
    the player recognizes the compatibility of a video file with the browser and makes a fallback with a compatible file type, if any is uploaded.
    For instance uploading a .webm alongside the .mp4 file, Firefox and Chromium ( both open source ) plays the .webm file, while Chrome ( not open source ) is playing the .mp4

    Thanks for sharing the information about mp4s and FF. I suspected that there was sometype of incompatibility issue not related to the plugin. Before approving, please provide source, tracker, and documentaiton URLs to the entry to help folks collaborate with you in maintaining the plugin. Peace - Anthony

    Hi Humanage SRL
    First of all thanks a lot for sharing good plugin. But I found this plugin make error in page Home / ► Site administration / ► Grades / ► Scales. To fix this you can modify your code in /mod/eduplayer/lib.php function eduplayer_scale_used() and eduplayer_scale_used_anywhere() by just return false or delete both function away.
