    Hi Joe,

    Sorry for slowness in reposnding, I had not subscribed to the forum.
    Sam (8 Mar): there is no plan to support non-hosted Adobe Connect deployments, unless it were to be added as paid work, let me know if interested in a quote.

    Hi, the moodle admin interface tells me there is a version "2013031400" available for this module, but the git repo only has version "2012102900" available. I guess this needs to be corrected on the plugin directory page?

    Thanks for the plugin! One issue to report: the email that gets sent to participants that I enroll in a webinar (I am the teacher / admin) includes a link to join the webinar. If the person is not already logged into Moodle, once they do login they get this error "Must specify a course module or a webinar ID".

    Two other issues.
    1. The timing of my webinars is always off by one hour. I 'add session' and set the time but when I save it, the next screen that shows the summary of my sessions is 1 hour early. Both my moodle and AC time zones are set to UTC - 5 (East Coast US - NY). I don't know if the issue is related to daylight savings and if so, how to fix it.
    2. If I try to edit a session I've already created, under "Host" it says "Select a host" but there are no names to select. Thus I can't save changes because the Host field is mandatory.
    Thanks!

    Thank a ton for the plugin - I have one issue:

    Can we make the join session button available even after the session is in progress? Its very inconvenient for people who are late by a few mins and the system won't let them join the session.We manually have to provide the adobe connect meeting link for the late participants. Our sessions allow people to join in late - so making the "Join Session" button availalble through out would really help us. Let me know if there is some code we can change manually here.

    Hello Joe, im trying your plugin with hosted account, seminar license (up to 600 users), but so far i cant get it to work properly.
    Testing with Adobe Connect 9, moodle 2.4.7 on localhost.
    After saving changes for Adding a new session, i got a white screen, and the session is not saved.

    Hello all,
    we are using moodle 2.4.7, webinar plugin 2013031400, integrated with Adobe Connect.
    The problem is that after their platform upgrade from Adobe Connect 8.x to 9.x, the integration stopped working.
    Does anyone have the same issue?

    By the way, I have already contacted Adobe Connect support via live chat, and they replied that I should speak to moodle support...
    They did verified the sitexmlapiurl setting.
    and also gave me this url: http://help.adobe.com/en_US/connect/9.0/webservices/connect_9_webservices.pdf

    We are also having a problem connecting to the Adobe Connect Webinar version 9, like Panos is. Are there any plans to upgrade this plugin to work with Adobe Connect Webinar version 9?

    We installed this on Moodle version 2.6.1 and having a number of bugs. I realize it was supported up until version 2.4 but I read a few people mentioning Adobe Connect version 9 causing problems with this module. So my question is, does anyone know what the status of this project is in relation to two things.. Moodle version 2.6+ and in relation to Adobe Connect version 9?
