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"?>
<settings>
    <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"/>
    <titles>
        <title target="fdPresentationTitle" label="Title"/>
        <title target="fdMovieTitle" label=""/>
        <title target="fdSlideTitle" label=""/>
    </titles>
    <steps>
        <step id="0" label="Introduction" comment="" framein="0" slide="Slide1.JPG"/>
        <step id="1" label="Content" comment="" framein="8" slide="Slide2.JPG"/>
        <step id="2" label="Conclusion" comment="" framein="31" slide="Slide3.JPG"/>
    </steps>
</settings>

    I am having an issue described on page two of the comments. The first time I tried to create a rich media activity, I was able to generate a settings.xml file from the editor. Now, however, when I work in the editor, save the work, and return to the settings page, the xml file area is showing "Slide3.JPG" instead of the settings.xml file and it does not appear that the editor is creating the file. I tried uploading a settings.xml file, but my upload was overridden by the "Slide3.JPG" again. Additionally, when in the xml editor, the mod cannot render the slides I uploaded. I tried purging the caches, but that did not work. Any ideas?

    I have the same problem described by Bernhard Harrer on 14 Aug 2012. Was there any resolution to that error?

    I'm having the same issues I had reported on March 2, even after upgrading the plugin. It looks so awesome! I just wish it would work.

    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...
