A rich media is defined here as a video content synchronized with your courseware (slides, pictures, tables, etc.). With this module, two versions of a rich media player are given: a full-featured flash version and a simplified html5 version. Another tool is also provided to ease the synchronization of your courseware with the main video.

To create a Rich Media activity, you have to :

- Upload your video (mp4, flv or ogv format)

- Upload an archive of your "slides" repository

- Upload or create your synchronization file (xml)

Release note :

- Lot of bugs fixed (fullscreen, sync, ...)

- Sync with .srt file

- External link to the video file

- New HTML5 Player

Example of settings.xml :

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <movie src="video/video.flv"/>
    <design logo="logo.png" font="Verdana" background="background.jpg" fontcolor="0xFFFFFF"/>
    <options presenter="1" comment="0" defaultview="false" btnfullscreen="true" btninverse="false" autoplay="false"/>
    <presenter name="Adrien Jamot" biography="" title="Developer"/>
        <title target="fdPresentationTitle" label="Title"/>
        <title target="fdMovieTitle" label=""/>
        <title target="fdSlideTitle" label=""/>
        <step id="0" label="Introduction" comment="" framein="0" slide="Slide1.JPG"/>
        <step id="1" label="Content" comment="" framein="8" slide="Slide2.JPG"/>

    Hi guys

    Intgrating the 2.7 version in France, found an encoding bug on Video file URL generation for the player, when video has accentuated vocals such as é. The video finally get called with an Url encoded %E9 where it should be at least the UTF8 dual char encoded sequence.

    Apart of this i'm trying the 2.7 version with some pain : the settings.xml mandatory name is confusing, could'nt at least "any" setting file name be renamed to settings.xml by the module setting processing for those internal rules be coped with any original name ?

    Btw : after loading a video with fixed name : (no spaces, no extraneous chars), the plugin seems not finding the video. Network traces of the pages show a call to a path 2576/mod_richmedia/content/contents/content/video/Video_ZOOM_MERCH_PRODUIT_Les_essentiels.mp4 wich seems having an extra contents/content part regarding to the pluginfile.php internal decoding. Where might it come from ? I guessed it was coming out the settings.xml file in the movie tag, but fixing by hand the path there has no effect...

    Syndrome de la page blanche : penser à mettre la plate-fome en mode déboggage "Développeur" et rapporter la pile d'erreur php qui apparait. Dans certains cas (rares heureusement), il se peut que la page reste blanche même dans ce mode.

    We will glad to bring our help to allow streaming integration on Wowza streaming servers. We are working on it for a last review of the mplayer plugin. Cheers !

    Any idea why the collapsible arrows are not showing up? Of course I am using a custom theme, and certainly there is a conflict somewhere. However, I thought I would ask in case someone has ran into this issue and has a quick fix for it.

    J'essaie d'utiliser le plugin, mais les slides ne sont pas pris en compte alors que le fichier intégrant un répertoires slides et des images .png sont déposés. D'ailleurs où sont stockés les slides?
    Lorsque je clique sur le bouton d'édition du fichier xml, il est inactif.
    Le fichier setting.xml est généré, mais ne fait pas référence au diaporama.
    Je précise que je suis en local avec php 7.0 sur la dernière version 3.2 de Moodle et le thème Academi.

    Merci pour votre aide.

    Hi there,
    +1 @balaji jadhav
    I can't find any documentation, both links in the description are dead. Promising plugin, but I can't get it to work. Followed the instructions in the above description, but slides are not showing and video via URL is not loading at all. using Moodle Version 2.7
    Any hint would be highly aprciated.
    Thank you!

    Any update to Moodle 3.5?

  • Tue, Jul 3, 2018, 5:22 PM
    Thank you for upgrading.
    I installed it on Moodle 3.5 and tested it.
    It seems that summary can not be displayed.
    Sync editing function and playing was done.
