The PoodLL Anywhere plugin for TinyMCE allows the user to record audio and video or draw pictures, or snap pictures, directly into forum posts, assignment descriptions, page resource content, question descriptions, question responses and other areas. Development was funded by the Birmingham City University.

The recorders available are:
i) audio (red5)
ii) audio (mp3)
iii) video (red5)
iv) whiteboard
v) snapshot

They can be hidden or shown universally using the settings found at:
site admin -> plugins -> text editors ->  tinymce html editor -> poodll anywhere

They can also be hidden or shown based on the users role using the folllowing capabilities.
tinymce/poodll:allowaudiored5
tinymce/poodll:allowaudiomp3
tinymce/poodll:allowvideo
tinymce/poodll:allowwhiteboard
tinymce/poodll:allowsnapshot


Install PoodLL anywhere by unzipping it and putting the "poodll" folder in

administration -> notifications page and follow the prompts for Moodle to install it.

* NOTE: PoodLL Anywhere depends on the PoodLL Filter also being installed, and will not install or work properly without it *

    Thanks Anthony. I have added the tracker and source control URLs. Yes the PoodLL filter needs better documentation. And I think the "someone" has to be me.

    My tinymce poodle plugin icons displayed in reverse order btw.
    ps: i could only allow it once - then after i couldn't click on 'allow' for some reason - it might just be me.

    Can I just get confirmation on what is holding up the approval on this? Is it the PoodLL filter docs or something else? The PoodLL filter docs are scattered around PoodLL.com really. But I just updated the page the PoodLL filter external doc link goes to.

    The documentation for this plugin is basically the readme file. I just added a link now to an "external documentation" page, but the contents are largely the same. I basically just added a YouTube video.

    Anything else?

    Ok, thanks for approving it Aparup. In Flash the permissions dialog can be hard to click on. Something seems to steal the "clicks." Hopefully it is not a widespread problem.

    Hmm. Unable to install the latest version in Moodle 2.4.3 (2012120310) even though the version required by the plugin seems to be 2012112900. Really interested in trying this out. Am I out of luck?

    It's pretty simple. When I go to Notifications, the plugin is seen but can't be installed until I "solve all the plugin requirements." Here is a screenshot: h*t*t*ps://w*w*w.dropbox.com/s/87tnooqzy1gat15/poodll.jpg

    OK, I see. The version that the plugin is requiring, is the PoodLL Filter version. That is a dependancy for PoodLL Anywhere. If you download that too , they should both install OK, and you will be up and running

    Hi. I am having an issue with audio/video/etc buttons not showing on essay quiz editor. I have added the buttons (poodllaudiomp3, poodllaudiored5, poodllvideo, poodllwhiteboard, poodllsnapshot) on customtoolbar settings but still no luck. Same thing with the Atto version. Atto settings: files = image, media, managefiles, poodll

    What could be the problem? Buttons show on other editor. Please help.

    Thanks,
    Jmes

    It is because the html editor in the assignment essay type does not handle file submissions. Effectively this means PoodLL has nowhere to store the files.

    @Justin Hunt

    Oh I see. I cant even upload an image/video in the essay type quiz. Is there anything I can do? or this is dead end?

    Thanks for your response!!

    Well, currently PoodLL only uploads to Moodle, not S3 or Dropbox or anything like that. So the essay response type won't work. But with Moodle you can have more than one assignment submission type. So you could have an essay submission type followed by a PoodLL whiteboard submission (for example).

    ... Also using YouTube anywhere for TinyMCE you could get vide submissions in the essay submission type.
