Helix Media Library Logo

The Helix Media Library repository plugin for Moodle 2.x allows a Helix Media Library content repository to be searched from within Moodle. This means that streaming video and audio content hosted on the Helix video streaming Server can also be easily embedded with a couple of clicks without any technical knowledge.

It works in a very similar fashion to the YouTube file picker, the difference being that the content is securely hosted on your own Helix Server. Since content is hosted on your own streaming server, the issues with hosting video and audio on Moodle itself are avoided and content is streamed back to the end user using the appropriate streaming technology. The Category Association Editor function within the repository plugin also allows for content exclusion from the search by pairing Moodle categories with Helix Media Library categories.

Embedded Content can be played back on PC, Mac, iPhone, iPad and Android!

IMPORTANT NOTE: The Helix Media Library repository plugin for Moodle 2.x works with Helix Media Library v2.x and onwards.

    I've asked Rob to remove the core patch prior to approving this plugin. Peace - Anthony

    With Moodle 2.3.4+ I'm getting error "Invalid table name {repository_helix_media_lib_cats}: name is too long. Limit is 28 chars"

    Moodle limited the size of table names to accommodate Oracle.

    Hi Chris, your best route would be to submit a support request on this and we can look into. If you are a UK user use support@streaming.co.uk, if you are in the US use: http://helixforum.realnetworks.com/helix_support
