Moodle plugins directory: YouTube Anywhere
YouTube Anywhere allows students and teachers to record directly from webcams and mobile devices, or to upload video files, into YouTube.
YouTube takes care of the storage of the videos and handles all the pesky file conversions and playback stuff.
Care has been taken to give the Moodle administrator control over who can access YouTube Anywhere. Authentication with YouTube can be done using the same Google keys as used in the Google Docs repository.
* Moodle 2.4 or greater
* Internet access
* Multimedia plugins filter enabled (to turn YouTube links into YouTube players)
* YouTube API keys (Public API Key, OAUTH2 client id, OAUTH2 client secret).
These are available free of charge from YouTube/Google.
The YouTube Anywhere plugin is contained in the youtube folder. That folder should be placed in the following directory of a Moodle installation: [PATH TO MOODLE]/lib/editor/tinymce/plugins
Other folders in that directory will include, spellchecker and moodlemedia.
Once the folder is in place Moodle will be able to install the plugin. Login as the site administrator. Moodle should detect the YouTube Anywhere plugin and present a page with plugin information and the option to proceed to install a new plugin. If Moodle does not automatically direct you to this page, you can go there from the Moodle menu:
Site Administration -> Notifications
Follow the prompts to install the plugin. On the last step Moodle will show the settings page for YouTube Anywhere. The settings can be accessed by the administrator at any time from the Moodle menu:
Site Administration -> Plugins -> Text Editors->TinyMCE HTML Editor -> YouTube Anywhere
Post Installation Settings
You will need several keys to authorize access to the YouTube API.
To get this go to:
You will need to create a project for your website. Only one is necessary for your Moodle site, and you can use the same keys for Google Docs or Picasa. If you are running either of those with Moodle, you can use the keys you already have. You will need to create and get:
i) a public api key
ii) an oauth2 client id
iii) an oauth2 client secret
This screenshot indicates how your API project on Google might look.
More information on getting Google OAuth2 set up for Moodle is here: https://docs.moodle.org/27/en/Google_OAuth_2.0_setup
There are two authentication methods possible, "master account" and "student account."
If using master account authentication, you will need to enter a valid YouTube username and password.
More detailed documentation can be found in a PDF file, that should accompany this plugin.
Is this plugin still working I have heard that there some issues with this plugin I believe it stopped working a few years ago as it was not set up to use the new YouTube API. It kept returning a server error rather than uploading the videos so we had to turn that function off.
I was looking forward to using it for this particular function: The Upload Video Form
The upload form allows the student to choose a video file from their computer/device and upload to YouTube. So it is simply a matter of clicking the "choose" button, followed by the "upload" button.
Any information would be great.
Right now when a teacher wants to place a video on their course page I have to upload the video on YouTube page, then copy the link, create hyperlink shortcut and paste it on an activity description such as a gallery. This is because teachers find this to hard to do.
I wanted an easy way for teacher to upload the video (on the activity editing mode) and the hyperlink be automatically created, so that the YouTube player shows up after editing.
This plugin would be exactly what I needed and I can't find anything like it
Please look at the "Upload" tab in the CloudPoodll Editor for Atto. It is described here.
This will upload the video as you describe and convert it and return a link that is inserted into the HTML area. There is no Youtube. But it does do subtitles. You can try it on this page.
Just by curiosity, is it possible to do the same with google photos for instance? Like upload the video to google photos and automaticaly create link into HTML area?
Can't find anything free like this
