Easy cross-browser compatibility videos using Video.js.

Videofile is a Moodle 2.4+ resource plugin intended to provide teachers with easy handling of cross-browser compatible videos using Video.js. In most cases it should be enough to add .mp4 video files which will then play in an html5 player in modern browsers and in a flash player in older browsers.

Videofile and Video.js also supports WebVTT captions as well as a poster image that displays before the video is started. It works well with responsive themes.

    Hello Jonas,

    I've been using videofile resource for months. I love it and truly need it for our website. Thank you !

    I'd like to add videofiles to the book resource, so I can have videos on the pages/chapters of each book.

    How can I do that?

    Already tried:
    - View page source, copy the videofile code and paste it on the WYSIWYG editor of the chapter.
    PROBLEMS:
    1. skin won't work
    2. 'Try mp4' feature pulls a HEAVY quicktime player, instead of opening the file in full page mode.

    Thank you.

    Ahmed, I haven't actually tried it with 2.8. If you decide to test it, please let me know if it works or not.

    All best, Jonas

    Dear Jonas,

    This player works very well. Thanks a lot for your nice work!

    May I know if it is possible to include the function of switching video quality (e.g. HD & CC)? It consumes lots of data if it is viewed by phone. Thanks!

    Hi Jonas, we've gotten your block running on 2.5 and it's excellent! We're in the process of upgrading our Moodle server to 2.9, or even 3.0, but this block isn't up there yet. Is there an update in the works?

    Hi Rhys,
    We recently updated from 2.5 to 2.9 and the Videofile activity is still working fine. Not sure about 3.0, though. If you have a test version of your site, you might try it out there first.

    We have it running successfully in 3.0 after upgrade from 2.7. Just had to edit the videofile\version.php file to change all instances of $module to $plugin.

    Ok, I used this a lot in my Moodle. worked really well. I have now upgraded to Moodle 3.02 and I had to remove it before I could do the upgrade as there was an error in the version.php

    Is there a Beta that I can use for Moodle 3 or is there a workaround?

    Its OK, should have read Neil Pollock's post, Maria you may want to check it as well. I opened up the version.php file in Notepad++ and just did a replace as Neil suggested. It made 8 replacements and it then installed just fine.
