Moodle 2.0, 2.1, 2.2, 2.3, 2.4, 2.5

This recordingsbn module works with the bigbluebuttonbn module to let you view and manage your BigBlueButton recordings within a course.   

This module lets you give students access to the recordings, publish/unpublish recordings, and delete the recordings.

To use recordingsbn, install it alongside bigbluebuttonbn.  

In short: the bigbluebuttonbn module lets you create BigBlueButton sessions from within your course, recordingsbn lets you view and manage the BigBlueButton recordings from within your course.

    Hi. I'm testing block version on latest moodle 2.4. As far i'm from Russia, i'm using unicode symbols.
    Though datatablepaginator and makes a table pretty, it fully breaks table content.

    Table row without js:
    Activity: 123
    Description: Проверка записи
    Date: Ср май 15, 2013 17:44:25 Северная Центр. Азия (зима)

    Table row after datatablepaginator improve table:
    Activity: 123
    Description: Проверка записи
    Date: Invalid Date

    You should find something more suitable taking into account unicode support and that fact, that date can be represented in thouthands different ways in different languages.
    And it's quite better to use format from languagepack (view.php, line 204).

    And thank you very much for your plugins

    Thanks for the feedback Vadim.

    We are going to take a look, but I am afraid it is a problem with the YUI plugin we are using and not really with the RecordingsBN plugin itself.

    What you can do for the moment is to use the default HTML table instead. You can do this uncommenting the line 254 in the view.php file and commenting 256 to 259.

    I know it is not the best way to do it, but this will fix your problem for now.

    And yes, it is better to use format. That is why you find the lines are still there. You can easily uncomment them as well. smile

    I guess the plugins cannot work out of the box for everyone in the world, but we are still doing our best.

    Cheers,

    I put in this tracker about a week ago: https://tracker.moodle.org/browse/CONTRIB-4401

    I don't know if anyone is watching the recordingsbn queue in the Moodle Tracker.

    Thanks

    Yes I am Daniel.
    Just kind of busy now with a huge pile of other tasks.

    You don't need to duplicate posts, just keep an eye on the tracking system. If anything happens is going to be updated in there.

    Thanks for following-up,

    Hi,

    Thanks for your work ! I just install BBB on a dedicated server. It's works fine, it's a pleasure. So I install BigBlueButtonBN with my moodle and it's ok too.

    But this plug-in "Recording BN" doesn't work with my BBB. Nothing was recording.
    But it's works fine with http://test-install.blindsidenetworks.com/bigbluebutton

    Anyone have an idea what can I do to resolve this ?

    Best regards.

    Clément

    Hi Clement,
    If the recordings work fine using test-install the problem is in your bigbluebutton server.

    There are too many variables that might be affecting your server. The most common issue is ffmpeg right now, but you better check out the documentation http://code.google.com/p/bigbluebutton/wiki/InstallationUbuntu

    Also, the best place to ask for help for this kind of issues is in the bigbluebutton mailing list. https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/bigbluebutton-setup

    I just noticed file deploy.sh in both bigbluebuttonbn and recordingsbn. It seems to be intended for a particular site. Can you please consider removing them from the packages? TIA

    HI,

    I've been testing BigBlueButton VM v0.81 with Moodle v2.8.5+ and RecordingsBN plugin. I can see the plugin works just fine if I am a teacher or administrator, but the student cannot find the list of videos (because of a default configuration I assume). So when I go in Administration > Site administration > Plugins > Activity modules > RecordingsBN to try to change the settings, I get a blank page with the title of the plugin. Could you tell me if I'm missing something, or what could be happening?

    I've tried to use both versions 1.0.11 (available to Moodle v2.6 to v2.8, and v2.0 to 2.5), and I'm running Windows 8.

    Thanks in advance,

    Mario Coin

    Hi Mauammad -- the recording is a synchronized playback of HTML5 content using popcorn.js. It's not possible to download as a video.

    Hi,
    I have installed this RecordingsBN module in my moodle 3.0.2 site, and a BBB 1.0 beta server.
    It connects perfectly (by the way the new feature to preload the presentation is GREAT!!!), lists and plays the recordings without any issue.
    The only trouble I'm facing is that it's impossible to delete or hide the undesired recordings. I have tryed as super administration with same results. The only way I have found to solve this at this moment is deleting the published recording in the BBB server.
    Is anybody else facing this issue?
    Regards,
    German Acevedo
